Eco-innovation Skills for European Designers
Date du début: 1 nov. 2015, Date de fin: 31 oct. 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The ECOSIGN project will create an Eco-Innovation Skills Alliance in four European countries (Slovenia, Spain, Romania and Italy) with the goal of addressing the lack of knowledge of designers coming from three economic sectors: food packaging, electronic goods and clothing/textiles. These sectors have production-consumption systems with globalised supply chains and large shares of imports to the EU economy. Production stages are frequently carried out abroad, whereas the design phase, mainly undertaken by European designers, determines 80% of the environmental impact of a product. ECOSIGN will allow industrial designers from those sectors to reduce environmental impact during the products life-cycle, including the use of raw materials and natural resources, manufacturing, packaging, transport, disposal and recycling.The main results of this alliance will be a new joint curriculum and a training course for European Ecodesigners that will add skills and competences to the designers regarding environmental technologies. Also, it will allow designers, from one specific sector, to change their industrial activity to other sector. The new training course will be formed by Open Educational Resources protected by open licenses and available in Massive Open Online Course platforms. The VET providers will develop audio-visual materials for the learning contents.The ECOSIGN project will organise a pilot test in the four participating countries including audience from the three target economic sectors in order to ensure quality results of the previous stages.ECOSIGN JCV, depending on the qualification system, will be assigned at the EQF level. Consequently, this new JCV will promote its recognition among EU countries. The project will include quality assurance and evaluation, taking account of the framework principles and recommendations of EQAVET and will include external stakeholders' opinions.
