The Project .

The current project „European Iron Academy“ is about strengthening craftsmanship education in the field of metal forming across Europe. Forging and metal designers need further continuous training to keep up with developments, to recognise the trends, to respond properly and professionally.

Within the Erasmus+ programme, this project is about making the first steps towards a European Iron Academy to provide a continuous vocational training offer.


We work in the field of LifeLong-Learning (LLL) focussing on metal forming education across Europe.


One goal of the Erasmus+ Programme is the valuation of autodidacts by evaluating his or her professional skills through the European Quality Framework (EQF)

Forging & Metal Designers in Europe .

Europe looks back to a great history in metal forming and production. But it still needs to keep pace and push boundaries in the field of handcrafts and metal design. Collecting and connecting resources shall highlight your opportunities in further vocational training as a metal designer.
