LISNAVE has joined the CHAlleNGE 4S project

CHAllenGE 4S “Challenge transition for a shipbuilding sector smart skills change” is a new project started in January 2023 and funded by the Erasmus+ Program.
The project involves the collaboration of 8 partners from 4 European countries, accompanied by 3 high-level international associate partners and it is developed within the framework of the Pact for Skills in shipbuilding (P4S Shipbuilding) and will involve a diverse range of stakeholders contributing to the lifecycle phases, from design to construction and subsequent operation and
maintenance. The goal is to provide a response in terms of skills and workforce requalification to the challenges related to new digital technologies.
The approach consists of developing and implementing three targeted pilot training actions that address three different topics related to digitization in shipbuilding. The activities and related skills cover different EQF levels, and each pilot project is implemented in a target country in collaboration with a training institution and a sector actor.
