Blockchain for Entrepreneurs – a non-traditional Industry 4.0 curriculum for Higher Education

VITECO takes part to the BLOCKS project, co-funded by the European programme “Erasmus +”.

The BLOCKS project creates a networked collaboration platform on curriculum development for universities and companies in Romania, Italy, Estonia, Latvia and Greece to develop non-traditional, blended-learning courses, tailored for an Industry 4.0 world, focused on providing teachers, students and entrepreneurs with knowledge and skills on the blockchain.

The approach is non-technologically intensive, as the purpose is to provide a business-oriented type of knowledge applicable for all types of students and entrepreneurs. The project shall identify critical skills and knowledge packs needed in blockchain-powered economy and implement them in the curriculum of universities, in a gamified, user-design oriented manner, tailored for various types of users.

  • Identification of skills shortages and knowledge gaps in blockchain in target groups;
  • Creation of an online multi-disciplinary transnational teachers training centre on the blockchain;
  • Design and development of blended learning curricula on blockchain for students, entrepreneurs, other users;
  • Design and creation of digital gamified study materials and collaboration platform for students, entrepreneurs and other users;
  • Design and development of a BLOCKS game.
