EFCI launches project to help the industry achieve digital transition success
EFCI, the European cleaning and facility services industry, officially launched the 'SK-Clean: Digitalisation in the cleaning sector - Supporting the skills transition for cleaning agents' project, last Friday.
The project, which will last until August 2021 and is likely to have strong implications for EFCI members, is the first EU-funded project to be fully led and coordinated by EFCI.
The project will reunite the sector's training experts from across Europe to identify the key challenges and best practices to accompany the industry through a successful digital transition.
EFCI intends in this way to increase awareness towards its stakeholders on the needs and crucial role of training for the sector, and to provide the industry with a tool to ensure a successful digital transition through training initiatives, programmes and activities.
The project will entail the creation of an Expert Group, which will discuss and identify the key ongoing transformations in the sector and its consequences from the training perspective. The first Expert Group meeting will be hosted by the Fédération des Entreprises de Propreté et services associés (FEP) and will take place in Bruz, Rennes (France), in the premises of the Institut National de l'Hygiène et du Nettoyage Industriel (inhni) at the end of May 2020. The Expert Group will meet again in Vienna (Austria) in March 2021 in a second meeting hosted by the Professional Cleaning Academy (Gebäudereinigungsakademie) of the Viennese cleaning industry guild from the Wirtschaftkammer Österreich (WKO).
The final results of the project will be presented in a Conference that will take place at the end of June 2021.
Experts and organisations interested in contributing to the project can express their interest to EFCI's Secretariat at:
