Innovation in the Cloud bridging Universities and Businesses
Cloud computing is now defining the future in ICT, facilitating new corporate and entrepreneurship models at all levels. It is a breakthrough paradigm that, applied to companies, public administrations and Universities, can enhance their innovation, cost-effectiveness and competitiveness.
The IN-CLOUD project has been designed in order to raise awareness among European Companies, Public Administrations and Universities regarding how cloud services and technologies can boost economical growth and innovation. This result is pursued by creating VET qualifications for professionals inside European Companies and Public Administrations, and training them to introduce and manage cloud technologies and services inside their systems.
The IN-CLOUD partnership involves 8 partners coming from 6 different countries (Italy, Spain, Germany, United Kingdom, Greece and Portugal).
The main outputs of the IN-CLOUD project will be:
an analysis of the training needs and of the professional skills related to cloud services and technologies;
the design of VET Qualifications in the area of cloud computing, based on the European Lifelong Learning instruments (EQF, ECVET and EQAVET);
a collection of interview and showcases, demonstrating real applications of cloud services and technologies;
the production and delivery of training courses aimed at achieving the VET Qualifications;
the realization of a virtual bootcamp for an open and continue training in the area of cloud computing.
