Title CHEMLAB - European apprenticeship training for chemical laboratory assistants
Project Number 2009-1-DE2-LEO04-01702-1
Project Type Partenariats
The CHEMLAB partnership contributes to a substantial improvement of the related national VET systems. The industry sectors concerned take advantage of young and motivated non-academic technical staff having gained analytical experience for a specific labour market. Subsequently, as a consequence, this will also imply and assure higher quality standards of products for the European Single Market and for the foreign trade.

The CHEMLAB partnership aims at providing and fostering a "European Quality Standard in
Analytical Vocational Education" for young apprentices in non-academic chemical training on-the-job. To that effect, an innovative VET-concept was developed based on a combined integrative
approach of theoretical education and market-orientated training close to practice on analytical
strategies and up-to-date methods of handling instrumental-technical, industrial or RTD challenges
with special regard to chromatography and mass spectrometry. As to the fields of application, the envisaged VET
programme particularly was focused on chemical, pharmaceutical, food, cosmetical and environmental
industry requirements. For this purpose, a Central Laboratory for Instrumental Analysis (called AsiA, i.e. 'Ausbildungsstätte für instrumentelle Analytik') was installed at the Technische Universität München (Germany) to coach non-academic, in-firm trainees both in theoretical and practical chemical analytical techniques. Similar institutions are available in the partner countries Georgia (Tbilisii), Greece (Thessaloniki), Poland (Poznan) and Turkey (Gebze). This multinational approach started with a partnership of institutions from the five EU member states and associated countries and was realized in close reference to the dual VET-system in Germany as a paradigm suitable to be adapted beyond.
The partnership characterized by a wide range of natural sciences educational levels still gains experience as to the demands, pre-conditions and chances of providing a flexible, transferable and innovative high quality VET concept for technical specialists in the relevant industry sectors throughout Europe.
Note that Czech Republic could not sign the contract in time. Thus this partner could not participate during the project period. On the other hand, not financed (by the partnership) partners from Georgia and Poland joined the project.
