Time and Date

April - June 2021

 

Methodology

The Ocean ProTec.Lab is a short-term course on knowledge exchange between workers from traditional sectors (including shipbuilding/ship repair), entrepreneurs, trainers and early-career skilled youngsters.

The pilot experience will include two technical pedagogical interventions, which will cover theoretical and practical knowledge transfer and anchor concepts of maritime literacy and ocean literacy. It will enable youngsters to have direct contact with the broad experience of workers of the Sea Cluster and business experts. Thus, it will provide an environment for critical sharing and learning between trainers, maritime professionals and young students (VET and secondary education).

 

Topics

The Ocean ProTec.Lab pilot experience includes topics/modules about traditional sectors and emerging activities related to new technologies. It will cover not only Shipbuilding/Ship Repair and Offshore Renewable Energies (target sectors of MATES project), but also Blue Economy, Maritime Careers, Aquaculture, Blue Technologies, among others. Additionally, the pilot experience will include horizontal themes: innovation and entrepreneurship, ocean literacy and gender balance. These themes will be included in dynamic sessions and through didactic activities in project methodology, which will promote contact and knowledge sharing among the participants (students, trainers, facilitators, workers and entrepreneurs from the sea cluster).
