REMADE Releases New Circular Economy Workforce Development Roadmap & Funding Opportunity

EWD project proposals are requested for projects that align with the EWD Roadmap and are seeking to develop short courses that can be used to educate, train, and develop the incumbent workforce for careers in the circular economy.

Short courses can be taken individually and are stacked together with other relevant short courses to form a Tiered Certificate Pathway. Each individual short course and Tiered Certificate Pathway addresses one of three distinct competency levels:

  • Awareness level training is intended to provide participants from a broad audience a high-level introduction to the subject matter. Individual Awareness level short courses may last 1- 2 hours.

  • Practitioner level training is intended for incumbent workers that currently work with Re-X technologies or in adjacent technology domains who wish to broaden their knowledge. Individual Practitioner level short courses may last 4-8 hours.

  • Expert level training is intended to provide in-depth coverage of advanced Re-X concepts or technology and is targeted toward engineers or scientists trying to deepen their expertise. Individual Expert level short courses may last 1-2 days.
