    Welcome to the Interreg V-A Latvia–Lithuania Programme 2014–2020!

LLI-75 Cooperation Network for Fostering 21st Century (Engineering) Upgraded Skills and Workforce Mobility (CONUS)

The common challenge of the programme area is related with the growing requirements of industry for workers’ skills and competences. The region lacks engineering specialists, who would have specific abilities, related with new technologies (CAD/CAM designing, CNC machines and industrial robots), skills and knowledge necessary for creation of innovations. This limits the development of business, establishment of work places and restricts sustainable development of the region.

The overall objective of the Project is to develop and improve lifelong learning activities in industrial sector to support labour market competitiveness and promote technological progress in Northern Lithuania–Southern Latvia region to make it more attractive to live and work.
LT Bendras projekto tikslas – sukurti ir tobulinti mokymosi visą gyvenimą veiklas pramonės sektoriuje prisidedant prie darbo rinkos konkurencingumo didinimo ir technologinės pažangos skatinimo šiaurės Lietuvos ir pietų Latvijoje regione ir siekti, kad regionas taptų patrauklesnis dirbti ir gyventi.
LV Vispārējais projekta mērķis ir attīstīt un pilnveidot mūžizglītības pasākumus rūpniecības nozarē, lai attīstītu darba tirgus konkurētspēju un veicinātu tehnoloģisko progresu Ziemeļlietuvas -Dienvidlatvijas reģionos. Projekta ietekme uz vidi – reģions būs pievilcīgāks dzīvošanai un strādāšanai.

The main project outputs will be produced: 1. Improved study/training facilities, learning resources and teaching. 2. Supplied competencies and skills meeting the industrial sector’s needs in Northern Lithuania–Southeastern Latvia regions. The main beneficiaries of the project’s outputs are people seeking industry demanded skills, education institutions and industrial companies.
Cross border collaboration, while creating the cooperation network, is necessary  in order to acquire and exchange new knowledge and the best practices, to foresee and integrate the labour market needs,  to use the available infrastructure and human resources jointly.

In order to foresee and emphasize skills and competences, necessary for contemporary specialist, the cooperation among higher education institutions, industrial enterprises and public sector remains insufficient and fragmented. This project aims to renew and join teaching infrastructure of the project partners as well as their competences – this has not been done in the region till now.

Main results achieved by the project 

1.    Improved study/training facilities, learning resources and teaching

In order to enhance the study and training programmes with appropriate practical skill outcomes 3 new laboratories: Industrial Robotics laboratory (SU), Computer aided design and manufacturing laboratory (SU) and Robotics and material testing laboratory (DU) were established utilizing the advanced hardware and software (industrial robots, CNC milling machine, metallographic sample preparation equipment set, robot simulation and CAD/CAM software).

SU and DU study and training programmes are newly created or improved to match the needs of industry and society. The content of the programmes is replaced by new courses and topics, including laboratory and practical activities using equipment purchased.

Teachers were also trained to work effectively with obtained equipment to provide high-level training.

In addition to traditional teaching aids such as textbooks, the use of Moodle learning platform make teaching more effective and simultaneously make the learning more profitable.

After the project this output will be further used by SU and DU as a base for high level studies and training. The main users of this output will be higher education and research institutions, industrial companies and general public.

2.    Supplied competencies and skills meeting the industrial sector’s needs in Northern Lithuania–Southeastern Latvia regions

People seeking for the industry demanded knowledge and skills were taught by professional teachers using the modern hardware and software to obtain knowledge and practical skills required in the modern world. Provided activities included studies, trainings, exchanges, workshops and internships with joint operation of existing and upgraded equipment, infrastructure and trained human resources. DU and SU together also promoted public understanding of modern technologies and innovations to keep in touch with the trends of the 4th technological revolution. This activity promotes cooperation between local industry and educational institutions through public lectures, seminars, contests, excursions to the companies aiming to familiarize the schoolchildren with the advanced engineering and making professional guidance more efficient.

The main beneficiaries of the project’s outputs are people seeking industry demanded skills, education institutions, industrial companies as well as regional public authorities.
