As part of the project, partners which include Dublin City University, The Arctic University of Norway, The European Institute for Innovation-Technology (Germany) and Greece based PROMEA have already developed a series of 8 tailored modules which include Hydrogen Basics, High-Pressure Fittings and Connections, Hydrogen Storage and Hydrogen Transportation and Delivery. The meeting in Dublin afforded partners the opportunity to collaborate on the next stage of the project to deliver a ‘Train the Trainer’ handbook as a resource for those who will be involved in the course delivery.
Dr Ashlene Vennard, South West College, said;
‘Project partners on the HySkills programme have worked tirelessly to create relevant and engaging content for this innovative course which will shape the Hydrogen economy not just locally but across Europe for years to complete. The modules have already been piloted by project partners and the feedback received to date has been both positive and encouraging.
The HySkills team have been using a range of new technologies and learning tools to facilitate the course delivery including annotated 3-D simulations which have been developed in-house by the South West College team which has helped create a much more engaging and industry relevant learning experience.’
Dr James Carton, Dublin City University added;
Dublin City University’s commitment is to the development of talent and the discovery and translation of knowledge to advance a sustainable society.
Being a partner of the HySkills Erasmus+ project and hosting meetings with colleagues from across Europe, helps the development of our teaching capability as well as sharing knowledge in many important areas such as hydrogen safety.
The modules are being refined on the basis of the feedback received to date and will soon be made available as openly accessible resources to industry and training institutions.
