KAAT – Knowledge Alliance in Air Transport

KAAT – Knowledge Alliance in Air Transport

KAAT – Knowledge Alliance in Air Transport is ERASMUS+ Knowledge Alliances project (n. 588060-EPP-1-2017-1-RO-EPPKA2-KA). The Coordinator of the project is University Politetehnica of Bucharest (Romania) and research period is :01/2018-12/2020.

The main objective of the project is to ensure a high quality workforce due to innovative European study programmes based on ICT tools designed by 16 partners from education, airports, airlines, maintenance, handling, governmental authorities, air traffic management of 6 countries: Croatia, France, Italy, Portugal, Romania, and Slovakia.

The main expected results of the project are: occupational and qualification analysis in air transport, an innovative study programme “IT applied in air transport”, new and innovative training approaches, a methodology for the Sectoral Qualifications Framework (SFQ) and recog- nition of prior learning and work experience in aviation and the creation of the European Network for Aviation Training and Education (ENATE) to ensure project sustainability.

In the mid and long-term, the creation of a European Network for Aviation Training and Education (ENATE) and the new joint international and multidisciplinary study programmes will ensure the international dimension of aviation education and sustainability of project results by a European dialogue on aviation education and will also impact international employability, especially in the countries participating in project. The study programmes and the network will share and integrate good practices and new up-to-date subjects into educational programmes and initiatives and will continue after the end of the project for at least 3 years.

The main need identified by the consortium is to bridge the university and vocational pathways because in many situations the lack of procedures for recognition of prior learning and/or gained experience makes the transition from vocational licensed occupations to academic ones difficult.

Based on identified needs, the challenges that KAAT aims to address are:

  • To deploy innovative European educational pathways for aviation, based on dialogue and effective cooperation between HEIs, industry and other stakeholders, with an efficient use of ECTS;
  • To create and strengthen permeability mechanisms to ensure better transition between training and education pathways and between education and industry.

The dissemination of project results will be ensured by the project website (http://www.kaat.upb.ro)  newsletters, workshops, participation in air transport conferences, flyers, posters, brochures, public presen- tations, publications, reports and analysis. The relevant regional or national media will be infor- med on project activities and results.
