Human centred manufacturing is one of the research and innovation priorities of the European agenda. The workplaces of the future will give much more importance to human knowledge, skills and cultural background, in particular through life-long learning and training.
The members of the Train4HCWork Consortium (Instituto de Biomecánica -IBV- as coordinator, IAD (TUD) – Technische Universitat Darmstadt, FEES – Federation of European Ergonomics Societies, UGA – Universite Grenoble Alpes and Structo Ingenieros Consultores S.L.) will develop and implement a new online course focused on the design of human-centred workplaces that will contribute to address such challenges.

Professionals in the design of workplaces, processes and machinery, responsibles for production design, working equipment and tools design are invited and also health and safety managers, consultants who provide services related to these issues to industry, and human resources professionals.
