news - 03/08/2015

The Centre established an in-house financing mechanism in 2012 with the objective of nurturing innovation and research in the training portfolio of the Centre, with an emphasis on internet-support and IT-enhanced learning methods. Over 2012-14, the Fund has supported 19 in-house initiatives with a combined budget of 500,000 Euros.

Together, these initiatives have contributed to the delivery of more and better training and learning services at the Centre.

One example of good practice financed by the innovation fund is the project on the development of an e-learning system for employers’ organizations in the field of occupational safety and health.

The system comprises a series of online training modules that are customizable, fully accessible on- and off-line, depending on customer needs.

Training is targeted at trainers of OSH supervisors at company level. The package is available in English, French, Bengali and Russian. Versions in Vietnamese and Arabic will be available soon.
