Set of competences for the professional development of the training curricula in women.

The project will offer a set of competences for the professional development of the training curricula in women. More specifically, No Gender Gap will aim at improving the attractiveness of the STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) using robotics and automation, which have proven to be a means of successful involvement.

Also, digital literacy and critical thinking will be promoted, and the teachers involved will improve their professional competences through new methodological approaches.

Project requirements for participants:

Women women at risk of social exclusion

Disadvantaged groups (eg. unemployed, victims of gender violence, refugees, without university studies, residents of rural areas)

Fill the questionnaire (SOON)

Motivation and willing to learn robotics from scratch

The project is aimed at both educators and women at risk of social exclusion and belonging to disadvantaged groups (eg. unemployed, victims of gender violence, refugees, without university studies, residents of rural areas) who want to improve their professional skills in a sector where the high demand in the world of ICTs can significantly reduce the unemployment rate.

The partnership will work in the realization of a MOOC for the creation of a robot. Besides, a methodology guide including innovative tools and approaches for teachers will be created. The partnership will also work on the recognition system of the competences acquired and each of the partners will experience an improvement in their operational capacity thanks to the internationalization of their activities.


The partners involved in this project, who had their first transnational meeting in Madrid, Spain, between the 29th and the 31st of October, and who will meet again in Genoa, Italy, in April 2019, will work together in this project until September 2020.
