WP1 concerning project management and coordination, WP6 concerning quality assurance, risk management and project evaluation and WP7 concerning impact, dissemination and exploitation are horizontal work packages that will run during the entire lifecycle of the project.

The project technical developments will be done under 3 WPs:

  • WP2 that will develop the Smart Cities competences map and emerging job profiles, as well as the SMACITE curriculum and the training and certification framework of the VET program.

  • WP3 that will develop the learning resources for the upskilling/reskilling of Smart Cities technicians and engineers, i.e. learning resources for Smart Cities enabling technologies, and for building soft, entrepreneurship and green skills.

  • WP4 that will develop a diagnostic tool for identifying personalized learning pathways through the curriculum (and where applicable and relevant through external courses of third-party providers), as well as the MOOC and Virtual Worlds for the upskilling/reskilling of Smart Cities technicians and Engineers.

Finally, WP5 will test and evaluate the effectiveness of SMACITE curriculum to identify fine-tuning improvements at the training program towards the production of the final version of the curriculum and learning resources.
