LLI-24 LitLatHV Enhancement of the mobility and employability of Lithuanian and Latvian specialists in the field of electrical engineering and high voltage technologies (LitLatHV)

Lithuania and Latvia encounter a shortage of qualified specialists in the field of electrical engineering and high voltage technologies in maritime and shore industries due to changes in technologies and legislation. Common challenge will be jointly tackled by consortium of 5 educational institutions: LAJM, KTK (LT), LJK, RTUVF, VT (LV) providing most efficient resources: experience in education and training of specialists in mentioned field, knowledge of professional requirements, academic experience, etc. – in order to increase mobility and employability of Lithuanian and Latvian specialists in mentioned field. The main project outputs are: 6 objects of education and training equipment installed in project partners’ institutions for the joint usage; upgraded qualification of at least 106 working specialists in joint activities, such as interexchange of experience, fieldtrips and internship, pilot training, meetings, etc. Students and teachers of project partners’ institutions, employees and employers from maritime and shore industries will be able to use jointly developed in the project 13 programmes of study subjects for students, 2 qualification upgrading programmes for adults, methodical materials of 14 titles in 3 languages. This project can be considered by international community as a good example of joint efforts to solve cross-border challenge.

Project duration: 01.04.2017 – 31.03.2019 (24 months)

Project objective: to increase job opportunities by improving mobility and workforce skills of Lithuanian and Latvian specialists in the field of electrical engineering and high voltage technologies.
