|Funding programme||Erasmus+ Programme|
|Start year-end year||2021-2023|
Against COVID backdrop, the core of the RESTART project is to develop an innovative training method to equip the European VET ecosystem with demand-driven training content to accompany Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and the European workforce in the “resilience journey” of restarting in a post-pandemic socio-economic context.
RESTART’s objectives are:
- update and upgrade the entrepreneurship support system to a post-COVID “new normal”;
- support EU Micro, Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) and workforce in the “resilience journey” of restarting in a postpandemic socio-economic context;
- improve relevant skills and competencies in up-to-date topics reflecting the market needs;
- foster knowledge transfer and business model adaptation of Small & Medium-sized Enterprises, with a focus on microenterprises.
