Launched on 1 December 2015, WEKIT is an ambitious European research and innovation project supported under Horizon 2020 to develop and test within three years a novel way of industrial training enabled by smart wearable technology (WT). With EUR 2.7 million of EU funding, thirteen WEKIT partners representing academia, including Oxford Brookes University, and industry from six countries in Europe will build a ground-breaking industrial-strength learning technology platform and unique methodology to capture expert experience and share it with trainees in the process of enabling immersive, in-situ, and intuitive learning. In this way, WEKIT will bring learning content and technical documentation to life via task-sensitive AR, making industrial training more efficient, affordable and engaging.
