The Agroskill objectives are to transfer innovative trainings methods, to exchange results and to agree best available methodologies in the field of non-formal and "informal" training in sustainable agriculture, namely outside the field of school and university curricula (like vocational training). Therefore, the aim is to achieve common frameworks for recognition at the European level.
Agroskill is composed by a consortium of 9 partners from 8 EU countries: Austria; Croatia; France; Greece; Hungary; Poland; Spain and Germany with large experience in relation with training and sustainable agriculture (especially organic farming).
The main foreseen activities of the projects are among others :
- to transfer of best practices in sustainable agriculture and skills validation
- to develop pilot training courses involving more 35 experts and teachers of vocational training
- to establish an European network of experts, comprising at least 65 skilled and 100 vocational training centres to broadcast online training programs
The project started in October 2013 and the activities are expected to cover 2 years until September 2015, with a total budget of EUR 363.630 distributed among the partners and 75% funded by the Leonardo da Vinci program.
