On 11 November 2022, the consortium joined the transnational meeting of the ESMERALD project, held for the first time in face-to-face format in Brussels, Belgium.
ESMERALD project, which brings together seven partners from six countries (Poland, Greece, Croatia, Italy, Belgium and Spain) and is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, aims to respond to the training needs of micro and small/medium enterprises (MSMEs) whose business is affected by the COVID-19.
During the meeting, the partners were able to discuss the current status of the project, the completion of the training material “COVID micro and SMEs response toolkit” (IO 3), distribution of tasks for the test and validation of courses and planning the elaboration of the Guidelines for ESMERALD mainstreaming and Resilience Manifesto (IO 4).
All the project’s results will be contained in ESMERALD OER Platform, which is available at https://esmerald.eu/index.php 6 languages (English, Polish, Croatian, Spanish, Italian, and Greek) to enhance and ensure the visibility and transfer of results, as well as the improvement of skills and competences of SMEs, especially micro-enterprises, in the "resilience journey" of the post-pandemic context.
In the coming months, the consortium will organize multiplier events, in which all relevant stakeholders will be reached. These events will offer them the possibility to know more about the results achieved in the ESMERALD project.
