LINKVIT: “New Skills for New Jobs”
Leveraging INspire Knowledge into Vocational Innovative Training (LINKVIT) aims to create dynamic platform enabling people a to take part in learning experiences, as well as helping to develop the education and training sector across Europe, exchanging best practices, and increase their staff’s expertise.
Innovation is key of the project. LINKVIT will improve the quality of training system by developing and transferring innovative policies, courses, teaching methods, materials and procedures. The project will improve the quality and increase the volume of co-operation between institutions or organisations providing learning opportunities, enterprises, social partners and other relevant bodies throughout Europe.
LINKVIT will make a significant contribution to the progress of INSPIRE Directive, that brings a revolution in geo-information (GI), and a need of specific skill in public administration and GI stakeholders. In particular the project will primarily contribute to rationalize and organize vocational training about GI & INSPIRE in public and private sector, also as regards an easy access to (standardized and validated at EU level) training. Its goal is to share already got results with INSPIRE Community (EU and National level), to enable a better skill and so support the practical implementation of the Directive. I
LINKVIT will help people to gain new skills, knowledge and qualifications, and boosts the overall competitiveness of the European labour market.
This will allow employed people to be re-qualified on new competence required by INSPIRE, postgraduates to simplify the access to GI-labor market with a post-degree specialization, and professional profiles within public and private sector (both technicians and decision makers), to make more informed decisions about the resources underlying Europe.
