Laboratorio CFC

The laboratory has been activated to create a structure that would make a contribution to the industry Digital Skills - Training - Evaluation - Certification - Enable, interacting with the various levels of the education system, and with the political organization (Regions - State - Europe) both with stakeholders, including the market.

Digital skills. There is currently a strong European movement at various levels to define the set of "digital skills" required (and developed) in the various strata of society. The movement is supported by the Community institutions (the Commission in its branches / Directorate), it is intercepted by organisms "regulators" and more generally by "stakeholders" and the "market". Weak presence of academia.

The workshop aims to contribute to the academic point of view to this trend and wants to help the establishment of channels of communication between universities and the labor market (and society), also for the definition of a common "vocabulary" of specific ICT skills. A strategic role is assumed in particular by the European scheme eCF, whose analysis and dissemination is given particular attention.

Professionals training. University can contribute to the fundamental process of "ICT acculturation ICT” of public schools trainers and cooperate with the local authorities (especially the Ministry of Education) to define teachers curricula . This process, however, must take into account the presence of other actors (Confindustria), which are pushing for a parallel professions oriented training, much  "operational" and less "innovative".

Certifications - With the publication of Legislative Decree 13 of 16 January 2013, "Definition of the general rules and essential performance levels for the identification and validation of non-formal and informal learning and the minimum standards of service of the national system of certification of skills" the standards for the certification of skills acquired in a non-formal and informal learning from the people have been defined. This followed also the recommendation of the Council of the European Union on the validation of non-formal and informal learning of 20 December 2012. At the national level it will be defined a repertoire of professionals based on what is currently in place in the regions.  At the moment, in fact, each Region manages its own repertoire of professional profiles that will convey in the only national. The profiles will be described in terms of skills referenced to the European Qualification Framework (EQF). In Europe activities have recently been launched, by several scientific associations , to establish certification "issues" (subject-specific or field-specific). See for example the EASPA (, founded by associations for the certification of quality in engineering, art, biology, chemistry, physics, information technology, food and public administration. The laboratory analyzes the types of certification ICT that arise in the market, also to encourage proper use of the same society, and to report to the community of university students the opportunity / criticality offered by these certifications.

Evaluation and accreditation. The laboratory supports the activities of the community of teachers of ICT area targeted to the qualification of degree,  with particular reference to the proposals for standardization training processes and also of their content, and available at European Union or international. GRIN  has been carr ied out for 10 years an activity of Accreditation of Bachelor and Master in computer science who has played an important role in maintaining a high standard for the university computer science especially in those venues with little or no presence of teachers of the sectors INF / 01 and ING-INF / 05. GRIN is a founding member of the European consortium EQANIE for accreditation, under the label EUR-INF, of the degree programs of first and second level of information space. GII has developed a BOK (Body Of Knowledge) describing the subjects needed to be covered to release a degree qualified in their respective jurisdictions for the various areas covered by degree courses. Other scientific communities similar to those of reference for the CINI are affecting the professional profiles that use so advanced computer skills: this applies particularly to the communities of Information Systems in Business School and in the Departments of Economics (area SECS-P / 10); by way of example the Italian branch of AIS (Association for Information Systems), called ITAIS
