LCAMP partners, Knowledge Innovation Centre and DHBW are co-organising the International Micro-credentials Summit on 20-24 March 2023 in Castelldefels, Barcelona (Spain).
The International Micro-Credentials Summit will be an international gathering of thought leaders, practitioners, innovators and policymakers working to improve the flexibility and responsiveness of educational systems. It will lay out a vision around empowerment of individuals to create new learning and career pathways while at the same time unlocking the potential of our economies to transform to meet unprecedented social, economic and environmental challenges. Inspired by the success of its last edition – the MicroHE MasterClass – the Summit will build on the European Union Council Recommendation on Micro-Credentials, finding ways to use this legislative basis as an instrument to accelerate adoption, acceptance and recognition of short-form education across the continent and beyond.
As there is a need to develop a micro-credentials system to integrate training courses into upskilling programs, also in Advanced Manufacturing, LCAMP activities include to:
- Provide a sector-specific datasets of trainings, courses and micro credentials for different career pathways
- Establish clearing house for micro-credentials and trainings based on Micro-Credential EU Standards
- Develop and provide micro- credentials for new and existing Industry 4.0 specific qualifications in Advanced Manufacturing.
This information will be available in the future LCAMP Platform.
