Using agile learning platforms to infuse knowledge of the circular economy with entrepreneurship

The objectives of CIRCLE are to support VET providers to deliver high quality online education that underpins a bright and sustainable future for learners and the environment, presenting a range of tailored resources that develop circular knowledge infused with entrepreneurship. Led by GEINNOVA, the project team submits an application for funding as they collectively believe that a transnational approach is needed for the CIRCLE project, because the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis, especially efforts to support young people and workers to acquire the key skills needed for the green and digital transitions and to access the labour market and secure future employment, is a European level challenge rather than a national issue.


1 – develop a set of learning resources in the form of Training Maps and toolkits to enable VET learners to acquire the necessary competences for the green and circular economy;

2 – fostering the entrepreneurial mindset of young people through a series of interactive learning resources that are benchmarked against the Ideas and Opportunities of the EntreComp Framework;

3 – create a new CPD TTT course for VET teachers/trainers to strengthen their competences to digitise learning offers and methods, while providing appropriate guidance and accompaniment measures;

4 – establish a facilitated Europe-wide online network among VET stakeholders to share good practices, build professional relationships and jointly create solutions to current labour market realities.

The partnership is composed of Spain, Ireland, Croatia, Germany, Germany, Portugal, France and Cyprus.

SuSTowns Project


Enhancing the tourist attractiveness of small and fascinating villages

The INTERREG MED project “SUSTOWNS” – Enhancing SUStainable tourism attraction in small fascinating small TOWNS, has as its main objective to promote the rejuvenation of small fascinating tourist destinations in rural territories and islands, through the exchange of good practices and promoting the development of Sustainable Tourism Action Plans addressed to regional, national and international tourism authorities in the intervention area (MED).

SUSTOWNS focuses on three types of target groups:

1 – Second home owners – These are people with personal or family ties who, usually for work reasons, do not live in the territories concerned and only visit (especially during long holiday periods). The specific objective is to increase the frequency of visits from 1 or 2 times a year on average to 2 additional weekends a year in order to achieve a multiplier effect both on the local economy and on the visibility and strengthening of personal links with these municipalities.

2 – New residents – The objective with this public is to integrate them into the population and to introduce them to all the activities and possibilities offered by the territory in order, on the one hand, to reinforce their links with the population and, on the other hand, to provoke a pull effect.

3 – Pensioners – Attract them and make them residents, as they could find the ideal environment to enjoy a high quality of life.

To achieve this, the project is divided into three phases:

  • Phase 1: Identification of the people who make up each of the target groups and categorisation by interests.
  • Phase 2: Creation of direct communication channels with them.
  • Phase 3: Consolidation of monthly agendas of activities aligned with the identified interests.

The countries involved in the SusTowns project are Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Greece, Albania, Croatia and Portugal.

Zero Waste Project

Zero Waste

KA220-SCH – Cooperation partnerships in school education

Food waste is not only an ethical and economic problem, it also depletes the environment’s limited natural resources. The best way to prevent food waste is to educate, inspire and encourage the public, and especially the younger generation, to take action.

The main objective of the Zero Waste project is to ensure that school teachers are informed and educated, through useful training material, about the social, environmental and economic consequences of food waste and the best practices to reduce it. Teachers will have the possibility to include the food waste training material in their classroom to raise awareness and pass on the knowledge to their pupils.

The ultimate goal of this project is for both teachers and pupils (and consequently their families) to act as transmitters of a new way of life based on cyclical economy, proper management of daily food consumption and elimination of food waste under the motto “use wisely, reduce, recycle”.

The partnership is composed of Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Romania.

R.E.Mind Project


Strengthening the entrepreneurial mindset in the social economy

The REMIND project meets the priorities set by EU policy drivers such as ET2020, “Entrepreneurship in the EU and beyond”, “Fostering entrepreneurial mindsets through education and learning”, “Small Business Act for Europe”. At European level, lifelong learning objectives and priorities are underlined within key strategies and initiatives, such as the ET 2020 Strategic Framework and the Renewed European Agenda for VET Learning. REMIND takes into account the challenges of the “new normal” and aims to guide VET learners towards a successful entry into the world of work.

R.E.Mind addresses the needs of two main groups:

1) Vocational education and training students (15-19 years old).

2) Teachers/educators from partner countries.


1 – The RE.Mind project will help students acquire the knowledge, skills and tools to recognise entrepreneurship as a “process” rather than an “end point”. It therefore aims to define a solution to develop a conceptual shift from thinking of entrepreneurship as “how to run a business” to “how to develop a broad set of competences” applicable in all areas of life.

2 – The project has the ambition to transfer this new concept of entrepreneurship to school curricula by supporting teachers and educators in applying appropriate methods to identify, analyse and develop entrepreneurial skills in VET students.

3 – The project focuses on achieving the right mix of theoretical and practical components and removing the barriers between the worlds of business and education.

The partnership is composed of Norway, Spain, Austria, Greece, Italy and France.

Training Digital entrepreneurs leading e-business

The lock-in and telecommuting imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic was an unexpected reality check for organisations of all sizes, and many companies went out of business or experienced survival problems. Organisations had to chart a new course for their business towards cloud computing and digital transformation, with the global health crisis serving as a driver to establish the value and flexibility of cloud computing.

With this in mind, the e-ENTREPRENEUR project is born with the main objective of training current and future e-entrepreneurs to incorporate e-business and cloud solutions into their own practices to achieve the common European goal of developing smart and inclusive growth based on knowledge and innovation and reaping the benefits of a digital single market.

The specific objectives of this project are:

1 – Broaden the dissemination and awareness of the use of cloud-based software among at least 1000 current or potential entrepreneurs, especially young people and women, in the partner countries and at European level, in order to foster the creation of new start-ups and increase the competitiveness of companies through the elaboration and dissemination of a creative handbook for digital entrepreneurs.

2 – Enrich partners’ training offers and increase the quality of adult education by developing innovative blended curricula and educational materials that respond to their needs in the field of digital entrepreneurship and help to integrate e-business.

3 – Increase the key competence in digital entrepreneurship of at least 50 entrepreneurs from vulnerable groups and at least 50 entrepreneurs through the provision of training in all partner countries.

4 – Strengthen partners’ capacities to introduce digitisation in education by implementing a common learning management system, developing and implementing e-learning courses and digital materials and improving peer-to-peer collaboration and self-assessment.

5 – Improve communication, exchange and flourishing of good practices between partners through active involvement of staff in all project activities.


The project will address these needs by developing and delivering blended learning sessions on cloud and open source software for business integration, expanding and developing digital skills, thus expanding the provision of high quality adult learning opportunities to improve their employment opportunities.

The countries involved in the e-ENTREPRENEUR project are Spain, Romania, Cyprus and France.
