Brief information

Printed, flexible, and organic electronics (PFOE) is a rapidly evolving field that combines various disciplines and enables the production of lightweight, flexible, and cost-effective electronic devices. As the field advances, there is a growing need for specialized skills and expertise at different educational levels, requiring both upskilling of workers and training of new talent. The INFINITE project addresses this need by establishing a Cooperation Network of Centres of Vocational Excellence in the PFOE sector.

INFINITE consist of full partners from Latvia, Finland, Germany, and Spain, focusing on closing the skills gap by developing targeted training programs that surpass traditional VET. Moreover, Associated Partners from 4 additional countries (Estonia, France, Greece, Portugal) will provide input from their countries and regions and are designated to uptake/replicate the project outcomes (trainings, courses, modules, etc.), and implement them. Furthermore, special focus will be on adopting the outcomes to other STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) related sectors, to achieve a maximum impact in European VET and industry.

The project aims to foster regional growth, innovation, and social inclusivity while promoting international collaboration to share knowledge and drive progress. Aligned with the goals of the Erasmus+ Programme, INFINITE aims to achieve vocational excellence through effective teaching and learning practices, collaboration and partnerships, and appropriate governance and funding. By enhancing VETs and facilitating cooperation between education, research, and industry, the project will address changing skill requirements, ensure quality employment opportunities, and contribute to an innovative, inclusive, and sustainable economy. Through the exchange of knowledge and interdisciplinary skills, the project consortium aims to create a harmonized VET system in Europe, support worker mobility, and strengthen the PFOE industry.

Kick-Off Meeting was on 8th March 2024 at the Novotel München Messe in Munich.
