What kinds of competence needs will cleantech create for the automotive engineering sector? How could these needs be met through continuing education or various learning environments? Solutions to these and other questions are being sought in the CLEMET (Cleantech Mobility Education for Tomorrow) project launched in March.

CLEMET is a project coordinated by Metropolia University of Applied Sciences with Laurea, Omnia, VTT and the City of Espoo as participants. The project funded by the European Social Fund will run until August 2021.

The project objective is to map future competence and education needs in the automotive engineering sector and build a new kind of learning environment that applies Living Lab methods. Laurea’s contribution to the project includes, in particular, competence in service design and Living Labs.

-    The goal during the project is to develop the Living Lab concept for Cleantech Garden, an innovation hub for bioeconomy and circular economy being built in the Kivenlahti district in Espoo, says Kati Tawast, Laurea’s project manager in the CLEMET project.
-    The objective is that, in addition to automotive engineering, the Living Lab learning environment being built now is also applied to other fields of study in the future.

In the first stage of the CLEMET project, Laurea is working together with Metropolia, Omnia and the upper secondary education unit of Espoo. Competence needs will be mapped by interviewing the students, teachers and management of the educational institutions and by organising an online workshop for workplace representatives.
