OUTLINE OF THE PROJECT IDEA The main goal is to incorporate BIM knowledge into vocational training courses. This knowledge will be offered by a company, a foreign university or a vocational training center and be incorporated in the IES Miguel de Cervantes, located in the Region of Murcia, and in other European centres. THE MAIN OBJECTIVES ARE: . To incorporate the BIM knowledge into vocational training courses. . To favour young people to enter the labour market with a better qualification. . To provide mobility of young people. ORGANIZATION PROFILE CTCON, Murcia Region’s Technological Construction Center is a non-profit organization made up of several companies from the construction sector. It was created in 2003 in the Region of Murcia thanks to Murcia’s Development Agency and to the support of the Construction Enterprises Federation. Our main purpose is to optimize R&D in companies, thus enhancing their competitiveness in national and international markets and providing our customers with a range of services that will achieve an increase in the quality of their products and processes. Currently, CTCON has 41 partners and some agreements with public administrations, because as a research center, its purpose is to help citizens to develop better infrastructure and to create an environmental-friendly society. The main lines of action since the creation of the center have been the implementation of research projects in the scope of the construction sector as well as technical assistance and technology advice to companies. CTCON has a projects department which is divided into two different fields: - Materials - Acoustics and Energy We have carried out several projects in different fields such as concrete, bituminous mixtures and acoustics and energy. In addition, CTCON has taken part in European and nationals programmes: European projects: - LIFE + ENERING (2011) (Partner): the main purpose of this project consists of showing environmental and economical solutions to reduce CO2 emissions in industrial areas. These solutions are based on the design of industrial buildings, an adaptation of existent buildings, passive energy solutions, renewable facilities and the use of residual energy to cover the necessity of the common facilities from the industrial area and the need of other companies in the same industrial area. These measurements not only contain individual solutions, but also management actions which affect industrial zones. http://eneringlife.eu/ - LIFE HEATLAND (2016) (Leader): its objective is urban adaptation to climate change consequences. In particular, it seeks to minimize the effect of the Urban Heat Island (UIH) by using new pavements with less solar storage than conventional ones, which will contribute to a better quality of life and human well-being. The objective of the project is in line with the “EU Adaptation Strategy”, as it encourages the application of innovative adaptation technologies, such as more climate proof building materials. http://heatlandlife.eu/ National projects: - CDTI – 2016 – Equipment to determine the useful life of structural concrete (Partner): to develop a team to determine accurate life of concrete structures exposed to marine environments, which could be applied to new structures as well as to existing ones. - Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness – Challenge Collaboration Programme - 2015 - Attenuation of vibrations in railway infrastructures (Partner): its purpose is to develop a rail vibration attenuator system based on the definition of a modular solution formed by prefabricated elements designed from a material with large attenuating capabilities. - Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness – CIEN Programme - 2015 - Advanced and Sustainable Developments for Efficient Road Pavement Rehabilitation Techniques (Partner): to develop new technologies and methodologies to support roads asset management making feasible the preservation and maintenance of any type of road pavements with a lower economic and environmental impact, improving their resilience to climate change. - CDTI – 2015 – Reduction of pollution in the urban environment through reactive materials and nanomaterials (Partner): research and development of one or more types of concrete with high decontamination capacity, developing two types of concrete: photocatalytic concrete to combat air and concrete capable of reducing NOx concentration by reactive materials. - CDTI – 2015 - Asphalt with road warning sounds (Partner): to design asphalt for low speeds (<50 km / h) in order to guarantee a noise level that can be considered as a warning sound for the passage of electric vehicles and to meet sustainability and low cost conditions. PARTNERS ALREADY INVOLVED (FURTHER INFORMATION): 1. IES MIGUEL DE CERVANTES (Post-primary school): More than 60 years devoted to vocational training studies. It is the school of reference in Region of Murcia and one of the largest schools in Spain. It has been evolving and using all the methodological resources available for students’ education. This school has two types of vocational studies in the field of construction: - Construction Projects (2.000 hours) - Civil Works Projects (2.000 hours) 2. CTCON, Research Centre, Spain. Technological Construction Centre of Murcia Region: CTCON is a non-profit organization made up of several companies from the construction sector. The main purpose is to optimize R&D in companies, thus enhancing their competitiveness in national and international markets and providing our customers with a range of services that will achieve an increase in the quality of their products and processes. 3. Region of Murcia’s General Directorate of Vocational Training and Special Scheme Teaching: Responsible for the competencies related to vocational training, recognition, accreditation and validation of professional competences, artistic education, sports, education and language and adult education.
