Notification has now been received from the EU funding body regarding EASIT and we wanted to share some of the positive comments received …
“All results have be produced to a higher specification … the project has exceeded expectations.”
“Dissemination and exploitation during the funded period was extensive …”
“The main learning results are very significant for the target audience … standards and competences which apply across industry and the EU have clearly been identified for the first time.”
“The marketing plan is well written and it is clear it has given project valorisation a clear sense of direction.”
“The website is a high-impact, professional-looking website … website statistics also confirm high levels of interest shown in the project.”
“Flyers, articles, press releases …. all considered to be of a high quality”.
“The projects raft of learning products is highly innovative”.
“The project has delivered quality products and new and exciting training and development opportunities …”
“It is clear that the results have the wide relevance that was originally intended as a result of the considerable involvement of the target group, domain experts, high profile organisations and partners in shaping the project outcomes”
“There is no doubt that the main learning and development products comply with current state of the art regarding vocational training …”.
“ … the Competence Framework is a professional looking software system for recording and managing individual and group competences”.
“Project dissemination has been the success story that was promised”.
“It is a strength that NAFEMS is uniquely placed as an international membership organisation and was able to disseminate to all areas of Europe and beyond”.
“The impending product launch at the NAFEMS World Congress will ensure the project results are promoted to relevant decision makers and receive the high profile attention they deserve”.
“ … they offer something entirely new by defining for the first time in a comprehensive manner vocational skills in engineering analysis and simulation which are applicable to all major industry sectors.”
“The contribution is potentially significant as the project results are uniquely positioned in the market place. No comparable provision currently exists and the contribution to EU policies …”.
We, the Project Partners, are extremely proud of the project and its deliverables and we wanted to share the excellent comments received from the EU.

The EU-funded EASIT project has now come to an end after 2 years and this webinar will provide an overview of the ground-breaking deliverables produced. The project focus has been to define a set of competencies for simulation engineers across 23 technical areas. These competence statements are now available in a new web-based framework that will allow individual and group competencies to be recorded and managed.
The EASIT2 project is now in the final stages and will come to completion later in September. Over the past few months, each of the project deliverables has been tested and evaluated by industrial & academic simulation experts, including members of the project partnership to ensure the project objectives have been reached, and the needs of the simulation community met.
Following this, the educational base and competency framework will be available in the coming weeks and months and the replacement competency-based Register Analyst Scheme will be available in 2013.
The project would like to invite you to have your say in the name of the new scheme by asking you to complete this very short survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/EASITwebsurvey .
Over the last month a number of NAFEMS Regional Conferences have taken place across Europe, with the EASIT2 project exhibiting at each. With almost 1000 delegates in total at the various events, this was an excellent opportunity for the European engineering analysis community to learn more about the project and its deliverables.
There was considerable interest in the project at the four conferences that took place in Germany, Sweden, UK and France. Many delegates expressed a high level of anticipation in the forthcoming project deliverables, clearly demonstrating the value of the project to the simulation and analysis community.
During the NAFEMS UK Conference, head of the project – Dr. Jim Wood, presented to a full audience of delegates. Speaking about the EASIT2 project and the three project deliverables, Dr. Wood’s presentation was extremely well received and many delegates displayed a keen interest on the outcomes of the project.
Overall, the NAFEMS Regional Conferences served as a great opportunity to increase awareness of the project and a great deal of interest in the deliverables was generated – demonstrating the value and worth of the project.
On March 5th 2012, EASIT2, in conjunction with NAFEMS, held a live webinar on the Harmonisation of Codes & Standards in the Nuclear Industry. You can now view the recording of the webinar for free by clicking here (registration required).
After more than 50 years of development, the civil nuclear power industry is now ready for standardised reactor designs which will enable the reactor designs from one country to be built in another country. Such standardisation will help nuclear power to contribute to the clean energy needs and lead to safer and more reliable use of nuclear power around the world. One of the areas where the nuclear industry has taken initiative is to harmonise industry codes and standards. This presentation describes the first pilot project being run by an International Task Force set up by the World Nuclear Association under their Cooperation in Reactor Design Evaluation and Licensing (CORDEL) group to harmonisation codes and standards.
