Objectives

The goal of the ANL-MEd is to provide Algerian industry with a new generation of skilled personnel, especially at mid- and higher levels, along with ensuring flexible and continuing education and training of industry personnel at all levels. Flexibility is necessary to adapt and update the knowledge according to the day-to-day progress of science and technology. The partners in the project have been selected above all to suit to the genuine structure of Algerian academia and industry and to align it to a modern and dynamic European standard. The reference line is represented by the two main characteristics of the Algerian industry

i) Relative low productivity determined especially by the lacking knowledge in modern manufacturing technology, maintenance and asset integrity.
ii) Few large companies and many SMEs with very small resources for internal development.

The higher education institutions will collaborate to reach the following objectives
