The BIMEET project aimed to leverage the take-up of ICT and BIM through a significant upgrade of the skills and capacities of the EU construction workforce. This Coordination and Support Action project was built around a strong consortium relying on educational and research expertise, the robust experience of accrediting and labeling bodies, the training supply chain, and a wide engagement of industry-led best practices (already committed in an EU-wide expert panel).
INSTRUCT aims to act at a market level by providing an operational framework and set of services serving to increase the number of skilled building professionals and construction workers along the value chain, raising awareness of stakeholders in the construction value chain— including producers and retailers, home and building owners, and tenants about environmental challenges and the benefits of sustainable energy skills—and paving the way for legislative changes that overall will stimulate the demand for energy skills.
The PRO-Heritage project aims to offer continuous education for professionals and craftsmen working in cultural heritage. It provides traditional competencies and skills for built heritage, based on best practice examples gathered by partner organisations. Additionally, PRO-Heritage will support the exchange of competencies and expertise across Europe by establishing a structure for the mobility of these professionals in Europe.
The nZEB Roadshow is Horizon 2020 project stimulating the demand for skilled workers by promoting market demand for quality nearly zero-energy buildings. In support of this goal, it will organize no less than 25 events in Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy and Romania, featuring product exhibitions, job fairs, training courses, live demonstrations, games for children - and lots of fun!
CraftEdu develops innovative qualification and training schemes for craftsmen and on-site workers in the field of energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources in buildings. CraftEdu supports the EU policies for introduction of nearly zero-energy buildings and deep energy building renovation within a vision for a decarbonized building stock in 2050.
The BIMzeED project focuses on the training needs for the current and future construction industry with the main purpose to encourage 1) better employability 2) low-carbon growth, 3) green and NZEB skills 4) increase in youth employment. The challenge of the BIMzeED project is to overcome skills mismatching and improve employability in the current European construction market by improving and extending the existing skills of Trainers, SMEs, site managers, craftworkers and other experienced operatives.
