Added Value for Craft project launches

EWH joined the first meeting of the Added Value for Craft group in Turin on 21 & 22 November.

Dec 6, 2013

The project is funded by the Leonardo da Vinci Fund and focuses on supporting the traditional skills sector in Europe. The aim is to see how vocational training development can be developed and to identify the main obstacles faced by small and medium sized enterprises involved in the sector.

The EWH input to the project focuses on expertise in urban conservation and traditional building skills. EWH will also evaluate and monitor the delivery of the project’s outputs, which are:

•    Research on traditional skills in each partner country to better understand how they can interact with sustainable development.
•    Collating examples of best practices in the sector.
•    Identifying key training requirements to enable a sustainable development of the traditional skills sector.
•    Development of communication tools to engage and involve local and regional partners and creating a database of stakeholders.

The project has a wide spread of partners in terms of location and specialisms, which will be essential for achieving a good overview of the subject. The partners are:

ECIPA Umbria – Italy

ECIPA Piemente – Italy

Local Development Agency Pins – Croatia

Okresní hospodářská komora Brno - venkov - Czech Republic

Chamber of Ioannina – Greece
