BICC – Sandanski started implementing project CompoWIN project - More Skilled Hands for Hi-Tech Production, which also involves organisations from Croatia, Estonia, Germany and Slovenia.

The project is funded under the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union and will be implemented in a partnership with 6 organisations of five European countries – Bulgaria, Slovenia, Estonia, Croatia and Germany. The project runs from 1.11.2020-31.10.2022.

The project focuses on the promotion and development of the composite industry, i.e. materials and training in the composite industry field, which boasts high added value, and the work is still done by hand. In this way, they make aeroplanes, boats, sports equipment, wind turbine blades, etc.
Although the industry employs many workers throughout Europe and generates approximately € 70 million in revenues every day, there are still relatively weak links between industry and education.

The project partnership will focus on creating a comprehensive, useful and attractive training system for future composite materials manufacturers. The project will create curricula, materials for teachers and documents for self-evaluation. In combination with an existing on-line course, it will be possible to turn general technical knowledge or teaching into basic teaching techniques and knowledge of composite materials, while the aim of the project is also the ability for rapid deployment of training in organisations with no previous experience with composite materials.

Except in Slovenia, it is difficult to find a national vocational qualification in the field of composite materials. The project will strive to place the good practices of the Slovenian national vocational qualification in the education systems of Bulgaria and Croatia, and thus it is expected that this will encourage the dissemination of national vocational qualification in other EU countries.

The target groups of the project are:

  1. SMEs already using composite materials
  2. SMEs operating in the wood, metal and other traditional manufacturing industries
  3. Training providers in the field of vocational education and training
  4. Educational institutions in the field of vocational education and training

Project CompoWIN will be based on three key innovation approaches:

  1. Creating a successful integrated employment model
  2. Ensuring the sustainability of the project results through the introduction of the model for the development of didactic contents
  3. Address the lack of national vocational qualifications in the field of composite materials and its implementation in European countries

The project partners are:

  • Business Information and Consulting Center Sandanski Association (BICC Sandanski), Bulgaria
  • AFormX, aviation technology and precision mechanics l.l.c., Slovenia
  • Kuressaare Ametikool, Estonia
  • Sachsische Bildunggeselschaft Furumweltschutz und Chemiberufe Dresden MBH - SBG, Germany
  • Regional Development Agency Zasavje, Slovenia
  • 3D Group Cluster 3D Technology, Croatia
