WORK4CE: Cross-domain competences for healthy and safe work in the 21st century

Project Reference: 619034-EPP-1-2020-1-UA-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP

Digital Transformation changes the way we live and work in a dramatic way. Still, people want “good labour” and employers want to develop new ways of working.

WORK4CE addresses the need for competences, standards, learning materials and didactic formats, which are important in the new Work4.0 environment.

The project develops standards and learning materials for the new topic of cross-domain competences for healthy and safe work (CDHS) by setting up industry-university communities for the development, delivery and dissemination for the relevant topics.
