We empower European manufacturing with capable people

The future of manufacturing is, and will be, highly competitive, sustainable and resilient, enabled by technologies and talent.

Therefore, education and training should stimulate and support learners to build not only their technical skills but also transversal skills, to understand and operate in highly complex ecosystems.

Paola Fantini, Education Director

Our approach

Manufacturing is becoming an increasingly challenging and inspirational sector.

Its future is projected to be competitive, sustainable and resilient. EIT Manufacturing, with its education activities, wants to empower learners, students and employees, on both a transversal and a technical level. We do so by teaching them how to operate in complex ecosystem with real-life challenges.

Our activities are grouped under three groups:

  • Empower: Running EIT labelled Master and PhD programmes and professional training to develop a high-value learning journey for students and professionals.
  • Connect & Transform: Creating the infrastructures and learning experiences that enable individuals and organisations to network, skill, upskill and reskill within the Manufacturing Innovation Community. Offerings include short online units targeting the workforce and support for Teaching and Learning Factories.
  • Engage: Reaching out to pupils, youngsters, society at large and other industries to create reciprocal awareness, attraction, and involvement in manufacturing by bringing information and knowledge to the general public.
