Brussels, Belgium - On February 22, 2023, the RESTART Consortium held its third transnational meeting in Brussels, Belgium, hosted by IHF Europe. Bringing together seven partners from six countries - Slovakia, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Belgium, and Spain - the RESTART project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission. The project aims to develop innovative training solutions and tools to improve and advance entrepreneurship education and training across the VET ecosystem, addressing the needs emerging from digitalisation and climate change.
During the meeting, the partners were able to discuss a range of issues, including updates on the project's various results, such as the RESTART Training & Tools, the Open Educational Resource Platform (OER), and the Position Paper & Mainstreaming Guidelines. Additionally, the partners reviewed the training materials and translations available on the RESTART project website and discussed their validation plan overview. They also reviewed the current status of the RESTART OER Platform, including the unique visits to the platform and web statistics.
The RESTART Consortium is committed to ensuring the quality of the project's various results and its management and communication. The partners discussed the reporting process and communication and dissemination strategies, summarizing the dissemination activities of all partners and the number of people reached both online and offline, including policy makers.
All of the RESTART project's results will be contained in the RESTART OER Platform, which is available in six languages - English, Croatian, Spanish, Italian, Hungarian, and Slovak - to enhance and ensure the visibility and transfer of results. The platform aims to improve the skills and competences of SMEs, especially micro-enterprises, in the "resilience journey" of the post-pandemic context. The platform will also include the RESTART training content and tools, which are currently being created by the consortium and will be reviewed before validation by users.
The RESTART Consortium's transnational meeting in Brussels was a significant step forward in the development of the project's various results, contributing to the advancement of entrepreneurship education and training across the VET ecosystem. The consortium is committed to delivering innovative and effective solutions that address the needs emerging from digitalisation and climate change.
