The rapid shift towards a climate-neutral Europe and digital transformation is changing the way we work, learn, take part in society and lead our everyday lives. New VET skills are key to success in order to achieve the vision of European economies and societies to become more sustainable, resilient, and better prepared for the challenges and opportunities of green and digital transitions. The CATALYST project “European VET Excellence Centre for Leading Sustainable Systems and Business Transformation” is designed with a strong vision and motivation to contribute to the realisation of the European Green Deal and the new Industrial and SME Strategies.
The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Program, CoVEs Partnership for Excellence – Centers of Vocational Excellence.
The main goal is the establishment of a united CATALYST Centre of Vocational Excellence in 5 countries to give support, create an educational offer to tackle personal and organisational development and embrace transformation in SMEs, enabling and inspiring them to re-think and re-design their business models, co-creating and sharing between educational and business organisations.
The CATALYST project addresses sustainability from an organisational, social and economic perspective.
The project fosters innovation and applied knowledge in approaches of learning and tailor-made VET program via the “Enable component”, as well as support of SMEs to create sustainable businesses via the “Inspire component”.
