Summary:

The challenges and opportunities of globalisation and technological development have led to a strengthened emphasis on innovation as a key driver for sustainable economic development. Innovation is essential for the growth of modern societies and it is also central to achieving economic and social development. While innovation is generally recognized as critical to the continuous improvement of education…it is not yet systematically part of education policy development and the dynamics of innovation in education remain to be fully understood. While it is accepted that the analysis of innovation from a systemic perspective has been limited in the field of VET if the contribution of VET to innovative societies is to be improved, and if VET is to be able to meet the needs of the future jobs market then VET systems and providers themselves need to develop a culture of innovation and creativity. The inherent characteristics of business – namely that it is market driven and flexible, and therefore rapidly adaptable to change, as well as entrepreneurial and innovative – are precisely the qualities that are often lacking in public training systems and this is particularly the case where VET in the partner countries is concerned.

 

The project envisages to define and pilot an innovation ecosystem for VET based on an agreed set of common elements and principles that can be applied as a framework for innovation in Member States. The function of this ecosystem should be to support the identification, testing, development and assessment of new innovative approaches in the VET sphere which have mainstreaming potential. Sustaining an innovation economy means evolving, adapting, re-imagining and reinventing to create and utilize new ideas and information into both existing and new educational products and services.

 

 

Objectives:

The aim of the project is to simultaneously improve the contribution of VET to innovation in Member States while increasing the incidence of innovation in VET. The objective of the project is to define and pilot an innovation ecosystem for VET based on an agreed set of common elements and principles that can be applied as a framework for innovation in Member States. The function of this ecosystem should be to support the identification, testing, development and assessment of new innovative approaches in the VET sphere which have mainstreaming potential. Sustaining an innovation economy means evolving, adapting, re-imagining and reinventing to create and utilize new ideas and information into both existing and new educational products and services. The project specifically addresses Priority 5 – Improve quality and raise excellence in vocational education and training – under the Erasmus+ 2015 Call for proposals.
