12 10.20 Presentation on the LogiCAD project – reviewing project
13 Reviewing the Project… National Priorities:* LOGICAD Projec. The goal is to propose solutions and new tools to reduce imbalances between supply and demand of employment in the logistic sector, offering innovative answers, specific training and practical systems to reduce this imbalance.LOGICAD encourages the use of ICT and e-learning methods.Another important aim is to train people with digital and technological skills.
14 How you will address these specific national priorities? The project will deal with the new skills needed in the future about new professional profiles that will make up logistics sector and will provide these logistic companies and professionals just in time training through ICT, elearning systems, Computer Aided Design (CAD) technologies, and new pedagogies that facilitate the transfer of know-how in the workplace, focusing on CAD for logistics stakeholders.
15 WHY IS THIS PROJECT NECESSARY? 1.- Logistic sectorStrategic sector in the economySignificant percentage of gross domestic product of economic activitydirectly impact on the overall economic situation of any country2.-ProfessionalCAD: key to improve the design of logistic solutionsCompetencies and skills they must acquire to be competitive and adapt rapid changes and strategic impact
16 professionals and other stakeholders working in the Logistics sector AIMS AND OBJECTIVEStransfer of best practices and innovation generated within the LdV project "euCAD“ to:professionals and other stakeholders working in the Logistics sector
17 3 levels of Transfer of Innovation 1.- Tailoring the euCAD Framework " for Logistics Service Business stakehoders”2. - Developing and expanding the euCAD content3.- Developing CAD vocational skills certification and examination for Logistics Service Business
18 Type of transfer: geographic level Transfer the innovation arising from the euCAD Project.RomaniaSpainLatviaHungaryCatalin AnzaProject managerJonathan Borg, Steering CommitteeMalta
19 Type of transfer: SECTORIAL FROMMANUFACTURINGTOTRANSPORTATIONANDSTORAGE
20 This Transfer of Innovation will be implemented by: Customizing the euCAD Framework to match the needs of Logistics Service Business stakeholders.(background knowledge in CAD technology is different in both sectors)Developing and expanding CAD training content for the Logistics Service Business stakeholders.(background knowledge in CAD is different and Logistics Sector has different sub-sectors such as maritime logistics, land transport logistics and warehousing logistics…)c) Developing CAD vocational skills Certification and Examination
21 And why Aragon Institute of Technology? ITA eLogistica, is a Spanish National Centre of Knowledge in the application of Information Technologies and Communications to the resolution of problems in the field of integral logistics.As a non‐profit technology centre which main objectives are the generation, adaptation, transfer and dissemination of knowledge in the application of ICT for the integral logistics, focusing on process optimization and agents' integration along the supply chain in order to develop green and a collaborative logistics
