CEN Workshop Agreement on 'Quality Assurance Guidelines for Dual Training Systems'

This Workshop will produce a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA), which will define quality criteria and guidelines for effective dual training (dual systems). The document aims at simplifying the dual training process for every kind of structure and it will include examples of best practices related to the different experiences of the CEN Workshop participants. It will also contain an annex addressing the need for code of conducts between host company and trainee and providing for additional examples, thus addressing another relevant aspect, which is the centrality of the person, seen not only as a resource and part of an economic mechanism.

New CWA 17898:2022 'Methodology to quantify the global agricultural crop footprint including soil impacts'

The CEN Workshop on 'Methodology to quantify the global agricultural crop footprint including soil impacts' is a result of the Spanish Retos-Colaboración 2017 project FERTILIGENCIA (Innovative fertilizers to reduce the environmental impact of agriculture and development of a standard for assessing the sustainability of agroecosystems), whose general objective is to develop intelligent fertilizers using the understanding of the soil-microbiome-plant system, setting the first steps for an agriculture new revolution, able to satisfy the future food demand, minimizing the environmental impacts and loss of fertile soil.

CEN Workshop Agreement on 'Digital health innovations – Good practice guide for obtaining user consent for personal health information'

The motivation for this Workshop came from multiple European research projects and large-scale pilots that found that they were all needing to identify the most suitable lawful basis for collecting and processing personal health data for the development, deployment, testing and evaluation of digital health innovations. This CWA aims to combine the experience of various R&I projects regarding this topic in a best practice guide on how to obtain user consent for personal health information.

CEN Workshop on 'ModGra -Graphical representation of physical process models'

Models mimic the behaviour of real-world systems by mapping them into mathematical objects. Models give freedom to the mind, allow tampering and testing, playing with what could become real before it has real-world consequences.

CEN Workshop on 'eXtended Reality (XR) for Learning and Performance Augmentation'

eXtended Reality (XR) is the umbrella for Virtual, Mixed, and Augmented Reality (VR/MR/AR), relating in varying degree from the use of digital overlays to fully rendered immersive alternate views of a physical world, where objects are registered in 3D and user interaction is responsive to the user’s surrounding in real-time. XR is increasingly used in education and training to support learning, practice, or even guide performance.

CEN Workshop on 'Extraction, production and purification of added value products from urban wastes'

Wastewater treatment and organic fraction of municipal solid waste are responsible for the annual generation of up to 138 million tonnes of bio-waste in the EU. It has been estimated that almost 75% of this waste is currently sent to incineration or landfilling, with an extraordinary environmental and economic cost associated. Moreover, a high percentage of this waste holds a great potential as a source of recycled materials or valuable component recovery source. Wastewater contains cellulose and nutrients that could be used as feedstock for many applications. Solid organic waste could be also an interesting source of materials for added value applications (e.g., ectoine, polyhydroxyalkanoates, biomethane, etc.), to complement their conventional valorisation routes (e.g., fertilizers, biogas, etc).
