We are happy to announce the launch of one of our new projects, BIMaHEAD!
The BIMaHEAD project is supported and co-funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ programme. The project has a budget of 250,775 EUR and brings together 5 partners throughout Europe. It started in March 2021 for 2 years until February 2023.
The main objective of the BIMaHEAD project is to support building digital readiness in higher education institutions and to support students in construction related degrees to adjust to
the new online education environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic through integrating digital technology with teaching and learning practices. In addition, the project highlights
the importance of digital literacy and subject-specific digital skills for the future professionals in the construction industry (architects, designers, engineers, builders, constructors etc.)
and the focus is set on a specific software product, Building Information Modelling (BIM), as it becomes an integral part of the needed qualification of the future workers in the
The final result from the BIMaHEAD project is the development of a tailored online BIM course for HE students in construction related degrees and potentially being replicated in other
educational contexts. The long-term impact will be to i) support the EU higher education system transition to delivering high-quality online education and ii) empower students to foster
their own employability through increased sectorial digital competences and skills. BIMaHEAD will contribute to building a new generation of highly skilled professionals in terms of
digital literacy which will positively impact the local, regional, national and European economic development.
