Project
Objectives

The idea for this project arises from the fact that there is a lack of training materials and qualified personnel for the Friction Stir Welding (FSW) technology. FSW technologies have a worldwide diffusion in several industrial sectors (rail, shipbuilding, automotive, aeronautics). By 2010-2020, North America and Europe expect to raise their aluminium consumption by 61%.

Expected
Impact

Due to the European scale of this project, the consortium expects to have a direct impact on the identified target groups and relevant stakeholders at the European level. As the dissemination and exploitation strategy targets all the countries in Europe, not only project countries, the impact of FSW-TECH will be the same for all the European countries.

Implementation

FSW-TECH will support the creation of training manuals, the review of 3 professional profiles and multimedia materials in 4 languages, allowing to mitigate the identified EU market need. implement a new qualification programme for FSW, regarding to contents, methods and in terms of transparency and recognition between European countries.

FSW-Tech Project

Attending to the growth in FSW use and the evident need for metal qualified personnel in Europe, VET Providers will have to carry on fostering lifelong learning through FSW continuous training. Hence, Welding education and training for technicians, practitioners and welders must include FSW learning modules in their basic programmes. New contents and activities must also be developed, to ensure the updating of skills in the industry.

The project regards to the development of Guidelines for new professional profiles, aiming to promote a high-quality work-based learning in VET by improving the training methods applied.
