On December 6th, 2022, the consortium joined the Kick-Off Meeting of DREAM – Digital Resilience for European Microenterprises, a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, which brings together 7 partners from 6 countries (France, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Slovenia and Greece), led by Coopérative d’Initiative Jeunes (FR). The meeting was held online via Google Meet.
DREAM is an innovative and timely project that tackles the challenges of COVID-19 and digitalization in the two worlds of Vocational Education & Training (VET) and Small and Medium Enterprises, with a focus on microenterprises with less than 10 staff (MSMEs), with the objectives of support micro and small business by providing up-to-date training to help them cope with digital transformation, adapt VET to market needs via mapping and increase its flexibility via Digital DREAM Lab (OER Platform) and enrich the provision of formal/non-formal VET across EU.
DREAM project, which is fully aligned with the horizontal priority of the Erasmus+ programme of “addressing digital transformation through development of digital readiness, resilience and capacity”, will contribute to addressing the digital transformation of microenterprises, as well as increasing the flexibility of opportunities in Vocational Education & Training. The consortium formed by Coopérative d’Initiative Jeunes (FR), Sud Concept (FR), IDP European Consultants (IT), Institut de Haute Formation aux Politiques Communautaires (BE), IT Solutions for All (ES), Regional Development Agency of Northern Primorska Ltd Nova Gorica (SI) and Found.ation (GR) will work over the next 24 months to fulfil development and implementation of the project.
