The project "Supporting the partnership between the Center for Renewable Energies and Industrial Maintenance and the Center of competence-Technical Engineering of Luxembourg (CERMI / CdC-GTB)" CVE/085, executed under axis «Employment and Employability» of the 2016-2020 Indicative Cooperation Programme signed between the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Republic of Cabo Verde, it is funded under the Development and Cooperation Fund for a period of three years (2018-2021).
The intervention assigned by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (MFEA) to LuxDev aims at supporting the implementation of a partnership between a Cape-Verdean entrepreneurial public company, the Center for renewable energies and industrial maintenance of Cabo Verde (CERMI) and a Luxembourg economic interest group, the CdC-GTB.
This innovative project aims at the establishment of the Cape Verdean Competence Center "CdC-3C" limited company, through several phases. The CdC-3C is expected to become a center of excellence that will host and implement the Cabo Verde CdC-GTB pedagogical model. Besides training activities, the project expects the creation of consulting poles which will cover educational engineering, engineering and energy efficiency and renewable energy consulting. Clusters in the fields of certification, metrology and Research / Development / Innovation (RDI) are also foreseen.
LuxDev, which entrusted part of the project implementation to CdC-GTB (ref. Implementing Convention CVE/085•18 1974), retains a key role in ensuring:
- support for the structuring of this complex partnership ;
- monitoring the implementation of the Technical Assistance system provided under the Implementing Convention ;
- monitoring financial implementation;
- monitoring the implementation of the business plan of the CdC-3C ;
- conducting evaluations and audits ;
- acquisitions, at the request of CERMI or the CdC-GTB.
Moreover, the project has strong links with programme CVE/081 (Employment and Employability) and the European Union-funded CVE/881 project (Strengthening the regional positioning of the Center for Renewable Energy and Industrial Maintenance of Cabo Verde). It has also established strong synergies with programmes CVE/082 (Water and Sanitation) and CVE/083 (Renewable Energies).
