The RESTART project, co-funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme, aims to enhance entrepreneurship education and training in the VET (vocational education and training) ecosystem. It involves a consortium of seven partners from six countries (Slovakia, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Belgium and Spain). The project focuses on addressing the issues arising from digitalization and climate change. The objectives of the project include upgrading the entrepreneurship support system, supporting post-pandemic recovery for SMEs, improving skills for up-to-date market needs, and facilitating knowledge transfer of SMEs.

Based on the major business challenges identified in the post-COVID era categorized into four main areas (Digital Transformation, Innovation & Servitization, Localization, and Sustainability), the RESTART consortium offers the following seven online training modules:

  • Digitalization & online learning
  • Innovation and exploiting opportunities for MSMEs
  • Cybersecurity in the (home) office
  • Business model innovation, localization and resilience
  • Sustainable, social and green entrepreneurship
  • Servitization – transforming products into services
  • Emotional intelligence and well-being in the business context

The training modules in six different languages (English, Croatian, Spanish, Italian, Hungarian and Slovakian) are available at the RESTART platform.

The RESTART project partners are currently working on validating the training activities based on the previously created validation plan. This plan serves as a guideline for verifying the effectiveness and efficiency of the RESTART training. Therefore, the partnership invites existing and aspiring entrepreneurs to improve their entrepreneurship skills by trying out the online trainings and providing their feedback.
