ASSETs +
Alliance for Strategic Skills Addressing Emerging Technologies in Defence

ASSETs + is an international project for Defence Industry aimed at developing digital emerging skills to support the competitivity of the sector. The project’s common goal is to upskill the human resources with a specific high level knowledge to be required by the Defence Industry in the coming years.

The project will focus primarily on three technological areas:
1. Industry 4.0 Technologies (Robotics, Cobots, Autonomus vehicles/systems; Artificial Intelligence, C4ISTAR and cyber-security)
2. Environmental sustainability (application of the Industry 4.0 to optimise the entire production chain, re-use/re manufacturing/recycling)
3. Blue skills or naval skills (digital tools in design and production phases).

ASSETs+ will design and deliver a series of training and educational courses addressed the EQF levels from 4 to 7 according to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and will promote the attractivity of the Defence sector to the new talents in Europe.

The actions of the project will follow the process shown in the header figure above.

ASSETs+ has been kicked-off on 23-24 Jan 2020 at a workshop in Bruxelles by the whole consortium, made up of 30 members including universities, industries, training providers and cluster partners from 8 European Countries.
