Education & Training for Automation 4.0 in Thailand (ETAT)

ERASMUS+ project in the program “Capacity Building in Higher Education, 2020 - 2023

The EWA is involved as a project partner in the ETAT project and is responsible for the Work Package 10 “Dissemination” and supports the project coordinator in the management of the project.

The ETAT project focuses on strengthening technical qualifications at universities in Thailand in the field of Industry 4.0, industrial automation and smart production, with the aim of improving graduate employability and lifelong learning (LLL) by introducing European educational standards using practical examples. To achieve this, seven European partners are working together with six universities from Thailand and the Eastern Economic Corridor – Human Resource Development Centre (EEC-HDC) in different subprojects.

Six of the seven EU partners are EduNet or EWA members.

One of the most outcome is the establishment of 6 certified ETAT Training Centers at partner universities in Thailand, which will be equipped with 24 special training places (respectively 4 ETAT Smart Labs per university; technology by Phoenix Contact).

Project coordinator: Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (Austria – EduNet member)
