The second partner meeting of SCOBE project took place on 26 and 27 March 2018. in Naxxar, Malta arranged by Acrosslimits Ltd. The attendants were the representatives of the six consortium partners: the Spanish Vea Global., the French GMI AERO SAS, the Greek MAICH, the Maltese Acrosslimits, the English Accentuate and the Hungarian ArchEnerg.
The two-day session started with a presentation about the Engagement Tool and the Business Observatory development. In reference to the Engagement Box, the results of the motivational survey were shared with the project partners. Interestingly, these surveys were not only filled in by the institutions of the participant countries, but also by organisations from Portugal and Sweden. Based on the survey, the priority of the technical institutions is to learn more about the current trends of wind energy sector while the most important thing for educational institutions is having access to the training material of SCOBE project. Within the frames of the Business Observatory, a survey was discussed and approved by the partners and information was given about the current trends of wind energy maintenance and repair.
A great emphasis was put on the initial steps of the training material that is being made by Accentuate, GMI, Acrosslimits and MAICH. There was a discourse about the structure of the training material and the distribution of work. According to the draft of the curriculum, the students will gain knowledge about the types and the construction of the rotor blades, damage analysation, the materials used just as material testing, different techniques and methodologies. Health and safety regulations and waste disposal rules will also be instructed during these two courses on wind energy. Interesting tests, games and videos will make the courses enjoyable. Because of this, a general outline was given about the virtual e-learning platform, along with it some details were defined as well.
The last few hours of the meeting were spent on both the ongoing and the forthcoming dissemination activities, the administrative documentations of Erasmus+, the preparations and deadlines of the nearest tasks, the multiplier events and the arrangements of the next meeting.
After the summary and evaluation of the meeting, the partners agreed to share more details of the curriculum of the training material with the public when it is complete. The interested can read it on the website of SCOBE project: www.scobeproject.eu.
