Innovative Engineering Education


Economic, health and geopolitical trends, combined with technological innovations and sustainability issues, are driving specific areas of job growth and decline. Employers estimate that 44% of workers’ skills will be disrupted in the next five years and workers will require massive reskilling and training before 2027. This special track, organized within the cross-cutting action “Education & Lifelong Learning” of the iNEST project (funded by the European Union NextGenerationEU – PNRR), will be focused on the development of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that enable people to contribute to and benefit from an inclusive and sustainable future. In particular, the track will deal with tools, methods, and formats for Engineering Education. Examples of topics that will be included in the track are: New (digital) tools for Engineering Educations; The role of Learning Factories in Engineering Education; Serious Games for Engineering Education; Problem-Based Learning in Engineering Education; Engineering Curricula Design; Integrating Digitalization and Sustainability in Engineering Education; Life-Long Learning in the Engineering field.
