The CRITICALTHINKING4VET network
Criticalthinking4vet is an european network that is made up of prestigious technology centers that develop cutting-edge projects in a wide variety of fields (biosanitary, smart materials, nanocomponents…) as well as VET Centers. Both sectors collaborate together to create technical and labor training adapted not only to the needs of technology sector but also to the ones of students with obstacles.

From the network we believe that VET technicians have a fundamental role in the development of high technology projects, especially those young people with more obstacles that despite them demonstrate a capacity for improvement, dedication and learning that makes them overcome all their barriers. On the other hand, technology centers can play a fundamental role in these young people, providing them with a new experience that helps them access the labor market and developing fundamental skills for their social, professional and personal future.
