Leonardo da Vinci Project (2007-2009)

(European Project for evaluating the training level in small and medium enterprises
from Romania and other european countries)

     The new Leonardo da Vinci project, 3D Web-based learning and training in the field of the Enterprise Product Lifecycle (3DWebEPL) has the aim to transfer and to adapt the 3D innovative content and results from previous Leonardo WEBD project to improve SME vocational training system, promoting an efficient collaboration network over product development, focusing its attention on tools for sharing information and knowledge in various company divisions. The final product of the project will be a web platform for distance learning, based on 3D web technologies and usable by all the possible users on the European territory.
     Through the presence of modules oriented to the mechanical field and to the biomedical devices, a solid competence about CAD/CAE/CAM/Mock-up/PLMs techniques and medical equipment will be provided to SME employees and to other organizations, facilitating their collaboration in the development of new more complex and competitive products.
      The previous experience developed with the partners coming from the different countries of the European community, such as Romania, proves its engagement to supply this tool also in those countries (as Turkey) that need innovation in the technologies of product development in order to make them more competitive in the global economy.
      The main impact of the project will mainly concern high proficiency technicians training able to employ the new technologies for the product development, sharing the enterprise knowledge within the actors engaged in the design team.
     The courses are available after registration at:
     For Romanian users, the courses of medical devices are in romanian.
      What's new? There can be used interactive 3D technologies.
     From Iasi is Romanian Inventors Forum (FIR),

           Prof. Octavian Ciobanu:

Transfer the distance training methodology implemented in the previous project WEBD, based on the third dimension, to the a wide context:
- Exploiting new hardware and software potentialities
- Developing new training modules oriented to the SMEs that works in the sector of CAD/CAM/CAE/PLM/Mock-up, virtual validation of project, handbook management of enterprise and catalogs 3D on-line.

TARGET GROUPS technicians, engineers or people that work in the enterprises of the mechanical industrial sector, with at least an high school certification and interested to:
- acquire new competencies
- achieve superior formal credit certifications
