The main aim of the SMACITE project is three-fold:

  • To fill the skills gap of technicians and engineers designing, developing, and operating Smart Cities infrastructures and services.
  • To upgrade the accessibility of Smart Cities professionals to high quality training materials by adjusting proper educational tools and developing profession-specific learning resources.
  • To unify the appropriate learning outcomes of Smart Cities technicians and engineers and thus improve their mobility throughout EU countries.

The specific project objectives are the following:

  • Define the emerging job profiles of “Smart Cities Technician” and “Smart Cities Engineer” in line with ESCO, eCF and DigComp to support the transferability and recognition of the developed competences
  • Design the Smart Cities multi-disciplinary and learning outcomes-oriented curriculum.
  • Design the learning resources of the curriculum
  • Design a diagnostic tool to identify the training needs of Smart Cities technicians and engineers and propose flexible and personalized learning pathways
  • Develop a MOOC for the upskilling/reskilling at Smart Cities enabling technologies (e.g. Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Big Data)
  • Develop a Virtual Worlds platform for the upskilling/reskilling at soft, entrepreneurial and green skills
  • Design certification tools to verify the competences
  • Pilot the curriculum with Smart Cities technicians and engineers from Greece, Bulgaria, Italy, and Spain and evaluate the experience
  • Measure the curriculum impact
  • Disseminate project at the target audience
  • Take measure to support the exploitation and sustainability of project results
