South West College hosts final HySkills transnational meeting in Enniskillen

South West College recently hosted representatives from academic institutions across Europe as part of a two day transnational meeting for partners of the Erasmus+ funded HySkills project. Organisations from Norway, Ireland, Greece and Germany were involved in the event which served to showcase and reflect upon the work completed as part of the innovative project to deliver new training modules to support the delivery and development of the Hydrogen economy.

Reflecting upon the two-day visit to the college’s Erne Campus, Dr Barry McCarron, Head of Business and Development said;

The HySkills project has been a cornerstone of the college’s research and development agenda over the past few years. We were delighted to welcome partners from a number of academic institutions across Europe to Enniskillen over the summer to review and assess the project’s deliverables and to see how learnings developed through HySkills are being applied in our own teaching and curriculum here at South West College.

The international partners enjoyed several excursions during their stay including a visit to the Marble Arch caves and we are delighted that they were able to experience the hospitality and welcome that we are so well known for in this part of the world.’

To support the 8 open-access public training modules, project partners led by South West College have also produced a ‘train-the-trainer’ handbook which will be particularly useful to training and academic institutions supporting the development of the Hydrogen economy and further information is available online now at
