QM SOFT have carried out a high number of national and international projects over the years. Both as project participant, project promotor and as initiator of different projects.


These projects spans from product developments of software solutions that have been implemented in different industrial sectors through to VET methodology and contents within mechanical industry.

FivE project 2024

FivE will identify, develop, test and pilot an innovative, cross sectorial VET scalable transnational platform applying Competence Units (CUs) leading to Micro-Credentials (MCs), emphasising a systematic change of the modernisation and digitalisation of work-based learning practices and the green transition.

Students from production industries will apply a bottom-up approach for their VET career, testing out and studying independent CUs, one by one. When they find it interesting and succeed, they will keep on studying additional CUs leading to a MCs, afterwards combining them into full courses leading to a national qualification, or a recognised European Diploma according to the European Welding Federation.

A bottom-up approach will be applied to establish national Skills Foresight Forums. They will engage industry and VET providers to give direct input on developing, guiding and providing the protocol principles to consider when designing, standardising and issuing CUs leading to high-quality MCs.

Collaboration between VET providers will be supported by a ‘Shared Framework of Learning Outcomes’ (SFLOs) underpinned by an industry led Common Competence Framework, to inform the collaborative development of learning  resources, assessment processes and pedagogy. The SFLOs will ease the recognition of qualification equivalencies, assisted by ECVET and the European Skills Agenda. It is supporting learner mobility and shared delivery by VET specialists and industry experts, contributing to a unitised and modernised VET delivery system, where CUs and MCs will be designed, shared, and maintained nationally and transnationally within Europe.

QMS acts as a participant in this project.

iQMET Project 2023

The European community relies on sustainable economic growth and the manufacturing industry is the backbone of this competitive economic growth. 9 % of all enterprises in the member states (Eurostat) were manufacturing companies in 2014. These 2.1 million fabrication enterprises employed 30 million people (Manufacture Vision 2030), generating EUR 1.710 billion of value. Out of these, approximately 1,3 million are welding personnel. This skills shortage within the welding sector is compounded by a rapidly ageing welding workforce; with approximately 30% of the existing welding workforce aged over 45 years. This heavy proportion of older skilled trade workers, puts into focus that job positions related to welding will simply become impossible to fil

The project will implement work-based training methodology in the pilot courses to familiarise the students with real industry needs and problems. Special emphasis will be carried out in order to use industry examples that merge theory and practice. This project will investigate, develop, test, evaluate, validate and organize a new service system solution where one national training body and 3 training providers in SL, HU and RO start implementing work-based learning in their VET systems.

USE - REC Project 2023

University Students Engaging in Responsible and Sustainable Energy Consumption (USE-REC)

The project will contribute to the increased knowledge on renewable energy and energy efficiency through activities leading to increasing the public’s awareness of energy efficiency and sustainable use of energy on a selected territory (student campus in Timisoara, Romania).

The focus of the project is to bridge the gap between pro-environmental regulations, declarations and/or beliefs, on one hand, and actions and lifestyles in Timisoara student campus, on the other. Its focus is primarily to increase knowledge on renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy security. As a secondary effect, the project will help reduce the CO2 footprint of students living on campus, via interventions in campus living and activities.

QMS participates as a Norwegian Partner in this project. Project starts in June 2023.

IQSIM2 Project 2022

IQSIM2 is a ERASMUS+ KA2 project where QMSoft is the project promoter. Participants are from Sweden, Hungary and Romania.
To develop a new, innovative training methodology that better supports and implements effective digitalization of advanced production processes applying the dynamic iQSim simulator. The proposed blended learning and work based training system solutions let migrants and adult students experience a seamless education and training system solution letting students answer "what happens if ..." based up on a "play and evaluate approach".
The project will develop a set of Competence Units ( or microcredentials) including both theory and work-based tasks, hat can be shared among the partners and be offered to the industry when needed in their production.
