TRAILS fosters innovation in electromobility education in Bulgaria and Malta. The objective is to ignite and expand the education and future work capacity in these two countries from the regional innovation scheme. The project began with an assessment of the local needs in electromobility and new vehicle technologies. A specifically developed training for teachers programme will enable the transfer of knowledge from the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) and Cleantech Bulgaria (CTBG) to industry, local schools and higher education institutions, enabling educators to develop new methodologies to teach skills that are needed for the future of mobility. To address the specific needs of industry partners, the project also includes a strong collaboration between local educational institutions and industry partners.
