On the 22nd of March 2021, the European Footwear Confederation (CEC) and partners from Cyprus, Italy, Portugal, Poland, Spain, and Romania met remotely to kick off the new Erasmus+ project digitalFABLAB. New, innovative Vocational Education and Training (VET) practices and digital learning and teaching technologies must be taken up to reduce the skills gap between the education and the workplace, attract new professionals, and adapt to a highly digitalized post-COVID-19 world. The project will build on partners’ expertise in research, education, and digital tools elaboration to develop a digital Fablab using Augmented Reality, an associated international training course for students, and a methodology brief for teachers on how to incorporate the new platform into their training programmes.
