Welcome to CompoWIN project!
The composite industry is characterised by a high added value. It mostly employs workers performing accurate, high-quality manual labour. It is one of the few industries still valuing manual labour fabricating aircraft, boats, sports equipment, wind power turbine blades and even bathtubs from fibre materials.
Despite the fact that it employs hundreds of thousands of workers across Europe and is making about 70 million EUR each day it has gone under the radar of the educational system. This is due to the fact that for decades the productions techniques were closely guarded secrets. As a result, there is a total disconnect between the industry and education.
