BIRGIT project is structured to four main activities, Project Results, PRs.

PR 1 Industry requirements on GIS-BIM training programs and courses

The goal of this activity is to specify the requirements on integrated GIS-BIM training. Some requirements have already been implemented within existing VET programs and courses, but due to societal development with increased levels of digitalization, additional requirements have been formulated. The main target group of this project result is VET providers, both project partners and external providers. Also, companies working in the sector are expected to make use of the requirement analysis, when modifying their business offers.

PR 2 Localisation of existing courses

It is recognised that partners providing BIM courses today are lacking basic courses on GIS and vice versa. The goal of this activity is to reuse existing courses within the partnership and localize / translate them for usage by another partner. The term “localization” means in this context that courses are translated from one context (language etc) and adopted to national needs in another context.

PR 3 Development of new courses

Knowing the needs and desired learning outcomes from the previous PRs, we will develop new courses optimally filling the knowledge gaps.

Above all, we plan to connect competencies from BIM and GIS domains. We aim that the trainees shall be able to coordinate various BIM- and GIS specialists, working on the same project. This synchronisation will allow insights that would remain hidden without the BIM-GIS integration, by enhancing advanced analyses to investigate patterns, assess risks or to include time- and cost-, the 4D and 5D, dimensions.

We intend to develop a modular training for both professionals and beginners. Experts with previous knowledge could select courses to upskill themselves, while the new trainees would follow the whole educational package. The new courses will update the VET programs within the partnership and thus improve their quality.

PR 4 Testing and updating of learning material

The goal of this activity is to assess the quality of the learning materials being produced, to suggest improvements and to implement a selected set of improvements.

In order to evaluate the quality of the BIM-GIS training offers developed by the project and the related learning material, the Consortium is expected to test and validate such training, both in classroom settings and in online form. The task involves both the planning and organisational aspects of these training actions and the methods for collecting and processing the feedback received for the users participating in those actions.

Such process intends to inform the eventual update and adjustment of the learning materials, for their further adoption and diffusion within partners’ organizations and across EU countries.
