TrainMoS aims at supporting and training the human element of Motorways of the Sea by defining the basis for a future EU virtual open MoS University and by pulling together local competences and knowledge of different EU universities along with stakeholders' needs.
TrainMoS will develop an MoS knowledge base at EU university level by testing an e-learning MoS knowledge platform (within an ICT learning infrastructure) through the preparation of seven EU wide pilot actions by seven Member States (Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, and Greece). The participation of the seven universities and their students will create a critical mass which will allow for the development and testing of a European academic module in 7 MoS related subjects that should meet the needs of the freight transport industry actors.
Each pilot action will be developed under the following titles: Port terminals and hinterland links; Smart cities and intelligent ports; Green ports and efficient ICZM; Multimodality and sustainable logistics; Multimodal transport economics; Safety and security; and Logistic Chains and Modal Integration.
Each pilot action, coordinated by the TrainMoS structure and taking into consideration stakeholders' needs, will feed the MoS Knowledge ICT Platform and produce university level courses which could be followed by students in the seven Universities with lecturing professors coming both from the University and stakeholders.
State of progress on 31 December 2012:
The project is progressing as planned. The networks of the stakeholders were constituted and the e-Mos Portal was launched (www.onthemosway.eu). For the seven pilots, the training profiles and the course contents were defined and the Mos LMS and e-library was prepared to allow the partners to introduce the content of the courses.
