Abstract

The Ship DIGEST project is funded by the European Union’s (EU), Leonardo Da Vinci Transfer of Innovation programme which funds a wide range of vocational training measures, ranging from placements abroad to cooperation projects between training organisations in different countries (EU, 2011). In the context of the Ship DIGEST project, the Transfer of Innovation funding is facilitating the transfer of existing education, tools and products from previous EU funded ship dismantling projects and related industries to vocational outputs for the Turkish ship dismantling community. This transfer is being supported by an international consortium comprising of professionals within the fields of vocational education and training; health, safety and the environment; and the ship dismantling industry.
