  1. 1. http://Learning-Layers-eu – Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters –layers@learning-layers.euhttp://Learning-Layers-eu – Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters –layers@learning-layers.euLearning LayersScaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME ClustersCluster MatchmakingCopenhagen April 9-10/13Recruiting excellence clusters to scale up workplace learningJoint R&I projects to address Horizon 2020 challengesTor-Arne Bellika, Innovation Performance AS1
  2. 2. http://Learning-Layers-eu – Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters –layers@learning-layers.euThe Layers project overview2• Problem addressed:– Massive unemployment and at the same time lack of skilledtalents in growth areas.– to create more jobs we need to build a workforce with the rightskills faster• Focus of the project and the upscaling effort– clusters represent growth sectors and experience lack oftalents with the right skills. A major barrier to regional jobcreation.– clusters are arenas to match business skills need and educationofferings better.– Can clusters be used to scale uptake of new and existingcollaborative learning technology in workplace learning.• Layers: an FP 7-Integrated R&I project– nov 2012 until nov 2016/13 mill Euro budget
  3. 3. http://Learning-Layers-eu – Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters –layers@learning-layers.euEuropean Learning challenges• Current learning related problems– By 2020 20% more jobs will require higherlevel skills.– Large dropout rates at VET/Universities(35-70%)– Rising cost of education- low take up ofnew technologies and methods– Lifelong learning participation is only 8,9 %i.e many employed people do not update theirskills.• Stated EU 2020 goals– 40% of Young Europeans to complete highereducation.3
  4. 4. http://Learning-Layers-eu – Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters –layers@learning-layers.euEurope 2020 effort areas• World Class VET to raise quality of VETskills.• Promoting work based learning– i.e dual learning models (workplace and school)• Traineeships,• apprenticeships– Workplace as primary learning campus.• Lifelong Learning efforts• Partnerships between private andpublic institutions (to combat skillsmismatch)4
  5. 5. http://Learning-Layers-eu – Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters –layers@learning-layers.euLayers value opportunity• Develop and use new technologies,collaborative work practices andmethods to:– Increase effectiveness in Lifelong learningof current workforce– Increase use of workplace as learningcampus for new talents- on demandindividual and organisational learning– Increase the value of the learning relatedwork that the talent performs whilelearning at the workplace. This enableapprentice type salaries for students5
  6. 6. http://Learning-Layers-eu – Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters –layers@learning-layers.euClustersthe Layers scaling strategy6• Research and develop solutions by working withExcellence clusters and cluster policy makers.– Piloting in Healthcare and construction.– Involving ICT Clusters to create coordinated sustainabledevelopment of learning technology– Involve new clusters in new countries• Build sustainability beyond project horizon by:– Invite existing ICT clusters to participate in a network ofEducation Innovation Clusters to serve other regionalclusters with services and technologies to speed uptakeof new learning methods, digital learning content andtechnology.– Promote regional collaboration between clusters andtheir shared educational institutions to address skillsdevelopments services together to build sustainableincome from skills related members services to thecluster organizations.
