7th Transnational ENEX Project meeting in Düsseldorf

The seventh ENEX TPM took place in Düsseldorf from August 30th to August 31st 2017. Host was the International Agency for Marketing and Technology transfer GmbH (INTAMT). 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

The TPM was organized in addition to the original planning and was approved by the National Agency to discuss future dissemination activities and the further development of the project after completion of funding. Within the framework of the TPM, the results of the pilot trainings, the various dissemination events as well as the final implementation of the online course, which will be offered permanently and free of charge, available from 1st 2017, were also discussed.

Present during the 7th TPMs were representatives of MESA +, IFAC and INTAMT. The consortium has agreed to push forward the further professionalization of the ENEX course from November 2017 onwards. Against this background, further meetings and discussions have been agreed on which take account of the commitment to the ENEX project.

The ENEX course has received several awards from the German National Agency in Germany and is one of the most highly rated projects currently being funded.

ENEX Dissemination Conferences in June and July

Throughout June and July, all project partners have successfully completed their dissemination conferences, more than 150 participants have thereby been informed about ENEX project. The aim of the dissemination events was also the acquisition of multipliers as well as the establishment of networks within which the ENEX project can be disseminated after the end of the funding period.

The Polytechnic University of Bucharest started on 12 June, more than 80 stakeholders, as well as a member of the National Agency in Romania, were guests when Prof. Amza and his team presented the project results.

On June 20th, the conferences were held in Lodz as well as in Florence and on July 5th, a dissemination event took place in Enschede in the Netherlands.

The final conference of the ENEX project was held in Düsseldorf. On July 11, approximately 40 participants came to the Life Science Center.

After the greeting from INTAMT CEO Yuri Nikitin, Dr. Torsten Dunkel, representative of the National Agency at the BIBB, gave a brief overview of the ERASMUS + activities and promotion activities of the agency in the field of vocational training. The presentation of the ENEX research and project results were taken over by Daniel Bleich (INTAMT GmbH) and Dr. Martin Bennink (MESA +).

In the following, Michael Nolden (ZENIT), Dr. Thomas Schröder (TU Dortmund) and Heinz G. Brückelmann (Cluster NMWP.NRW) discussed different application and interface fields that can be linked to the ENEX course. In addition to the promotion of innovation, these were the areas of blended learning and vocational education as well as the supraregional promotion through political instruments.

6th Transnational ENEX Project meeting in Empoli

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
