  • Offer a chance to augment the skills of lifelong learners and maintain them on top of the employment market.
  • Increase competence in new languages by interconnecting participants of different ethnic & linguistic background, offering language introductory course and sending them to a foreign industrial exchange experience.
  • Create an easily deployable course for use by other EU educators
  • Set the foundations for developing a Masters course on Electric Mobility across EU institutions
  • Ignite entrepreneurship by using interactive teaching & participation methods that boost innovative thinking and to emerge them to this industry sector
  • Equip educators with new tools for conveying knowledge
