Research projects I am or was involved with.

Running projects

  • Creative Skills 21: In this project, the partners aim to define the most relevant 21st century skills for the creative industry education, by analysing the gap between industry needs and educational (VET) offerings. Subsequently they aim to bring these skills into VET education by proposing it as an integrated part of the vocational education and the creative design process. To do so, the project will organize training weeks where vocational teachers will receive professionalisation regarding the relevant 21st century skills, and will immediately apply these by coaching international student projects. The overall objective will be the professionalisation of the participating teachers as well as their peers at home, and the implementation of the 21st century skills in the strategic agendas of the schools, and, via international networks like EGIN and the IC, also in other schools.
