A report published in 2017 by the European Commission, European Construction Sector Observatory, on the topic of “Improving the human Capital Basis” (http://www.buildup.eu/en/practices/publications/ecso-report-improving-human-capital-basis, last accessed April 14th, 2018), mentioned BIM4VET.
Indeed, it should be mentioned that “given the relatively recent start of many digital skill-related initiatives at national level, Member States are currently joining efforts to better understand and define the needs for digital skills in the construction sector and subsequently develop suitable curricula”.
BIM4VET is described in p.52 as well as p.53 were the report highlights teaming up amongst Member States, which obviously shows the dynamism of Luxembourg in addressing skills and competencies related to digital technologies and BIM.
An initiative has been launched in Scotland, in 2017, aiming at defining a BIM Competency Framework. A specific workshop has been held on October 23rd, 2017.
BIM4VET framework is mentioned in the workshop summary report, available from https://www.scottishfuturestrust.org.uk/storage/uploads/workshopreport.pdf (last access April 14th, 2018)
