From May 27th to May 28th, 2017, the 6th ENEX TPM took place in Empoli, Italy. Host was the Faculty Agenzia per lo Sviluppo Empolese Valdelsa SpA (ASEV). The aim of the project is the elaboration of an e-learning course for professionals, which provides specific know-how on the economic use of nanotechnological research results. The ENEX project consists of four outputs:
- ENEX Competence Profile
- ENEX Curriculum
- ENEX e-Learning Course.
- Guidelines for validating and verifying the course
In addition to the development of the curricula, the contents have also been completed in the past months. After the implementation of the content on the ENEX e-Learning platform has been completed, the pilot training courses will be held over the coming weeks in order to have the consistency and logic of the materials developed reviewed by outsiders. The questionnaire provided for this purpose was developed by the partner IFAC, and the findings thus gained are then incorporated into the development of the final online course. Upon completion of the course, the participants receive a corresponding certificate proofing the qualifications acquired. The certificate itself is issued and signed by all participating partners.
After the successful nanotechnology conference in Münster in December, numerous marketing activities are planned for the last three months of the project. A dissemination event is organized in each of the partner regions, the dates and venues will be communicated by e-mail in the course of May. The aim of the events is to present the e-learning platform as well as the results of the past three years and to discuss the possibilities and perspectives of the ENEX project. In addition, the ENEX consortium is currently planning further dissemination events at conferences and trade fairs as well as online.
The ENEX course was rated excellently several times by the German National Agency and is one of the most highly rated projects currently being funded
