Education, Competencies Management, Certification of competencies
The project has three functionally related objectives:
The EASIT2 project is a Leonardo da Vinci European Union co-funded project, part of the European Vocational Training Action Programme. Leonardo da Vinci projects are aimed at designing, testing, evaluating and disseminating innovative vocational training and lifelong learning practices, and at promoting innovation in training as well as methodologies, contents, products.
The main aim of the project is to set out the knowledge and skills that a competent simulation engineer (CAE engineer) should possess, and to develop a set of tools that will enable engineers to develop, manage and certify their competencies within a wide range of industry sectors.
Specific objective of the EASIT2 project is the development of 3 distinct, but functionally related, competence-based tools:
The topic of the certification of competencies is a key issue of the European debate over the relationship between the rapid change of the technical knowledge and the development of the job market. Over the last years, the European Commission introduced a number of tools, such as the Europass and the certificate supplement, aimed at improving the transparency and transfer of competencies and qualifications as part of the Bologna process.
The EASIT2 project will contribute a new set of tools, specifically designed for the analysis and simulation industry, that fit ideally into this paradigm shift from a curriculum based qualification attestation, to a more sound and trasparent “competence based” education and certification.
EnginSoft values the EASIT2 project as strategic, and therefore joined the project as a “core” partner to contribute more closely to the project steering. EnginSoft had an active role in the development of the innovative competence based tools, and specifically developed the competence framework application and lead the competence based registered analyst scheme workpackage.

Some of our competences in research and technology transfer
Il progetto VOLPE mira all’ingegnerizzazione e all’industrializzazione di un innovativo strumento optoelettronico per la rilevazione di sostanze esplosive in forma volatile, integrabile con i sistemi commerciali per il controllo dei bagagli a mano, ed in grado di operare in completa autonomia.
The scientific and technological objective of the project is to create a hybrid system where a neural network in the brain of a living animal and a silicon neural network of spiking neurons on a chip are interconnected by neuromorphic synapses, thus enabling co-evolution of connectivity and co-processing of information of the two networks.
Development of a novel “manufacturing system-level quality and productivity optimizer tool” enabling the evaluation of the system level impacts of the defect avoidance policies that can be adopted within single processes.
