LCAMP: Learner Centric Advanced Manufacturing Platform for CoVEs

The fifth industrial revolution is built upon the technologies of the fourth, with an increased emphasis on a human-centric, sustainable and resilient industrial base, emphasising the digital and green transitions. A key pillar of this economic transformation is the role played by Advanced Manufacturing systems such as Robotics, 3D & 4D printing, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing.

Industry 0.5 requires Vocational Education and Training to develop ‘learning centric approaches’ that focus on the holistic competences of humans that plan, manage, oversee or operate technologies. By collaborating across borders, LCAMP alliance’s goal is to support and empower regional Advanced Manufacuring Centers of Vocational Excellence to become more resilient, innovative, and better equipped to train, upskill, and reskill young and adult students to successfully face the digital and green transitions. The alliance will help regions grow and be more competitive through their Vocational Education and Training

To do so, the Alliance will develop activities in three main strands:

  • Teaching & Learning: establishing AM skills frameworks and curricula; launching or revising AM programmes (including micro-credentials); creating or capacity building learning factories (special AM labs, jointly run by VET and industry)
  • Cooperation and Partnerships: launching a skills & jobs observatory for advanced manufacturing; accelerating industry/VET/region cooperation ideas via an open innovation community and providing consultancy to SMEs on integrating SME/VET connections
  • Governance & Funding: creating a one-stop-shop portal for all our services; ensuring a business case for continuing services to stakeholders in the long-term, while enhancing participation
