On September 2020, the Erasmus+ National Agency in Bulgaria communicated the approval of the YOUNG FARMERS – Rural Entrepreneurship Leveraging Advanced training for Young farmers proposal, under the KA2 Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices – Strategic Partnerships for vocational education and training.
Low digital skills combined with the missing integration of Digital tools, are two factors that inhibit the competitiveness of young farmers’ business and the exploitation of missing opportunities. There is the existing necessity to valorise, enhance and support these fragile working categories leveraging on innovative entrepreneurial solutions applied to agriculture.
YOUNG FARMERS aims to valorise a sustainable and competitive growth path for young farmers providing them a set of training tools properly customised on their major needs. The content of the training addresses:
- Communication and ICT skills
- Digital and innovative management models for agriculture
- Internationalisation and EU single market
- Challenges and opportunities consequent to the adoption of such business framework
- EU initiatives for young farmers
YOUNG FARMERS will be co-funded by the Erasmus Plus Programme of the European Commission and will last 24 months between 2020/22. The project has been submitted and will be implemented by a partnership of seven organisations from five European countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Italy, Poland and Spain).
In the Project, IDP brings its consolidated experience and expertise as a private provider of adult education services. IDP has 25 years of experience in international and cross-border collaboration in the field of promotion of entrepreneurship and employability. IDP will greatly contribute to the technical and operational activities of the Project carrying out analysis and stock-taking activities of the Italian Adult Education ecosystem pertaining to the project; contributing to structuring modules, developing methodologies for effective teaching and learning, materials and content.
