AIMPLAS says that it has taken part in a new project to provide EU mold manufacturers with speciality plastics training.

The Erasmus+ training program, which is reportedly aimed at both professionals in the sector and students undertaking vocational training, was designed to build on the molding courses already available in a number of countries. AIMPLAS says.

The program covers the specific features of plastics and the technical skills required relating to the concepts and tools used in the plastics sector. In addition, guides and tools based on a practical approach have been created and tailored to the target audience and the different countries, and to European collaboration and learning networks, according to the association.
