Our Second Transnational Project Meeting in The Hague


Friday 30th of September 2022 our partnership met for OFFSET’s 2nd Transnational Meeting in The Hague in the beautiful premises of our partner LIDI SMART Solutions.

We started by discussing project management stuff but we quickly went onto Project Result 1’s so far produced content (namely the training course materials).

We are really satisfied with what we achieved and we think that the materials will be a great source of knowledge and inspiration for present and future handcrafting sector entrepreneurs in their path towards the digitalization of their professions.

We also discussed our next step in PR1’s production which is the creation of materials specifically targeted towards VET trainers and business coaches and we think that what we came up with what will be not only a pleasant surprise but also an extraordinary tool.

Lastly, we discussed about the preparation activities for the Learning, Teaching and Training Activity which will serve as pilot for PR1’s materials and for which we had some wonderful and interesting ideas.

In inviting you all in keeping an eye on our progresses, we want to thank again our hosting partner and our coordinator CCIS Madrid for their hard work in organizing and directing the meeting.

Moreover we want to thank the coordinator for PR1’s production, Emphasys Centre, for their hard work and wonderful ideas so far, and Univpm Università Politecnica delle Marche for their proposals for the LTTA.

Lastly we want to thank all the partners for their precious contributions during the meeting and in project implementation.

We want to wish everyone good luck in the next steps of the project!

Kick-off meeting in Madrid and start of OFFSET’s activities


Yesterday the entire partnership participated in the kick-off meeting of project OFFSET, cofounded through the ERASMUS+ KA220-VET. The meeting was held in Madrid (Spain), in blended modality, by our project coordinator, the Camara de Comercio e Industria Italiana para Espana, in their wonderful premises.

OFFSET deals with teaching to handcrafting sector entrepreneurs the digital and entrepreneurial skills they may need to upscale their business, and with giving to VET trainers and business coaches all the instruments to further upgrade their supporting and knowledge-transmitting capabilities on those topics to present and future handcrafting entrepreneurs.

We started by overviewing all that needs to be done during project implementation, focusing in particular on management,  dissemination, and LTTA activities. Then the colleagues from  A & A Emphasys Interactive Solutions Ltd, coordinators for the production of PR1, presented their wonderful proposal for course’s syllabus and implementation deadlines.

We can only say that great things will await those who will use our training materials!

Lastly, we want to thank the entire partnership for their concrete and useful contributions in the development of yesterday’s discussion, and to wish everyone good luck in the start and continuation of the project!
