Building Information Modelling (BIM) can be defined as a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. BIM softwares are used to plan, design, construct, operate and maintain many kinds of buildings and infrastructures.

Considering the lack of homogeneous tools validated at European level for training in BIM, this project has the aim of building a bridge between Northern Europe and Southern Europe.

BIM project is a capacity building project in the area of VET promoting cooperation and partnership among 6 different organizations (VET provider, Regional Authority, 2 universities, private company, EU association).

The specific objectives of the BIM project:

  • Upgade and innovate existing training tools and training programs about BIM
  • Increase the synergic use of up-to-date technologies, in an integrated way, with team work approach and personal development
  • Improve the effectiveness of teaching and learning of vocational contents on BIM
  • Increase the cooperation among educational institutions and enterprises in EU for better employability
