We are excited to announce that Luxembourg Creative Lab have joined efforts with the Chamber of Commerce Basilicata di Matera, Italy to enhance traditional craft practices though 3D printing and technology innovation as part of the project “Craft3D”, Erasmus+ co-funded project 2023-1-IT01-KA220-VET-000154806.
The project “Enhancing traditional craft practices though 3D printing and technology innovation” will focus its efforts in the wood manufacturing sector, with a specific attention to the promotion of the use of 3D printing in the industry though the development of dedicated VET curriculum in the form of MOOC, integrated by a work-based learning experience and with a tailor-made assessment tool to monitor learners progress in a digital environment.
The consortium formed by six multidisciplinary partners from five countries with experts in vocational education and training will also hold transnational meetings to develop the project.
All the partners will implement the following activities:
– Developing a VET program aimed at the upskilling of wooden craft artisans and carpenters by providing them knowledge and specialized skills on 3D printing and its applicability in the wood craft sector;
– Developing an assessment tool for VET providers that support the monitoring of VET learners learning progress in an online environment;
– Local phase of testing of the MOOC involving wood craft artisans and carpenters;
– Local work-based learning phase and Mentorship Program testing.
One of the oldest cities in the world, Matera has boasted the Sassi and the Rock Churches Park since 1993 World Heritage, while in 2019 it was awarded the title of European Capital of Culture also known as “Citta del Sassi”.
Matera is a magical place that preserves evidence of human settlements since the Paleolithic period in its natural caves carved into the rock. Over the centuries, these caves, which were to become the symbol of the city, were developed into increasingly complex structures in two large natural amphitheaters. Matera is located on a limestone plateau in Basilicata with deep fissures, ravines, rocks and caves: the oldest blocks are named Sassi and are famous all over the world.
The kick-off will be held at the Chamber of Commerce of Basilicata in Matera.
Looking forward to meeting all the partners and start collaborating on this exciting new opportunity.
Stay tuned for more exciting news on the future events!
