As Europe recovers slowly from the effects of the economic crisis there are some key benchmarks that were set as part of the EU2020 strategy that remain outside of the reach for most EU Member States on an individual and throughout the EU on a collective basis. One such target is the 15% adult participation rate in lifelong learning. With current rates of Romania 1.1%; Croatia 2.3%; Poland 3.7%; Cyprus 6.9%; Ireland 8.9%; Portugal 9.8%; none of the countries participating in this project have reached or exceeded the benchmark set.

Over many years the teams of volunteers who organise and manage the local cultural festivals and events have built up vast reservoirs of knowledge that is invaluable to their communities.

Tacit knowledge is impossible to transmit through central media but it can be transmitted by lateral media.

RESET – Pedagogy for Workforce Transition

Reference number: 2017-1-FR01-KA204-037152

Period: 01.11.2017 – 31.10.2019

The ageing of the population is a demographic phenomenon in Europe characterised by a decrease in fertility, a decrease in mortality rate, and a higher life expectancy among European populations. in a report in 2006 the IMF projected that the ratio of retirees to workers in Europe will double to 0.54 by 2050 (from four workers per retiree to two workers per retiree). The size of the aged population is expected to grow not only in relative but also in absolute terms with the number of Europeans aged 80 and over expected to nearly triple, rising from 18 million in 2004 to approximately 51 million in 2051 (eurostat). In the context of this demographic change there is no doubt that our social security systems’ capacity to maintain today’s standard of living for future generations of older people will be severely challenged. For many individual Europeans the term retirement equates to living in poverty, with the risk of poverty of persons over the age of 65 increased by one third against national averages in most countries.

An Innovative Modular Dual System Based on Business Processes Modeling and Simulation for Company Oriented Vocational Education and Training (InnoVET)

The significance of vocational education varies considerably throughout the states of the European Union.

A dynamic economy with an emphasis on lifelong learning must be underpinned by a dynamic education sector and while tackling early school-leaving is one of the priority objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy, addressing the skill deficits and building the key competences of the young unemployed already outside the education system is a key objective of ET 2020. Young Europeans without high-value skill-sets developed as part of an educational progression pathway will become increasingly marginalized and will struggle to realise their full potential in social, personal, employment and economic terms.
