About

ShapiNG II project goal is to motivate and raise the interest of young Europeans, with particular emphasis on school students (ages 12-18), with a special focus on females, and on teaching the teachers for activities in the field of manufacturing, within the EIT RIS countries: Portugal, Spain, Greece, Slovakia, and Czech Republic. The developed and growing network of Smart Manufacturing Demonstrators, videos, and presentations will aid Universities and RTOs to attract young students in EIT RIS countries, creating a realistic and positive image of the manufacturing industry. By “socialising” with smart manufacturing challenges and career opportunities in early ages, students will be encouraged to consider a career in manufacturing and therefore help ensure a future with available and well qualified workforce. All the materials within the network of the ShapiNG II project will be used in the activities to be held in schools to promote awareness about the manufacturing fields.
