MILK-ed

2019 - 2022

The aim of the project is to create a training programme that will provide farmers with the knowledge, skills and competences needed to start their dairy processing assistance activities on the farm. In order to ensure the sustainability of small farms, all rural areas, farmers will be provided with the knowledge and skills needed to diversify their farms so that they are independent of only one source of income.

Project website link

Project name
MILK-ed: Modern and Innovative Online -Based Know How on European Diary Processing

About the project
Recently, the need for professional knowledge of milk processing has increased, and this has been observed in each of the participating countries. The growing demand for training/education in milk production mainly comes from farmers and their family members who are interested in processing milk on the farm to a lesser extent. This trend is mainly due to the fact that milk prices have fallen so sharply in recent decades that farmers are unable to cover production costs, and the only way to keep their farm alive is to add value to their products when processing milk into dairy products.

Project name
SkillUpgame: Improving “Problem solving in technology-rich environments” skill of low-skilled adults with gamification, serious games and LARP

About the project
There are millions of people in Europe who do not have proper reading and writing, numeracy and digital skills. A 2014-2015 PIAAC survey found that 1 in 4 Europeans struggle with simple counting. In addition, the survey showed that the distribution of skills also has a significant impact on the distribution of benefits of economic growth in societies. With the start of the 4th Industrial Revolution in Europe, the need for high-level skills and skills such as critical and innovative thinking, entrepreneurship, creativity is increasing. There are regular concerns about a further deterioration in the situation of low-skilled workers in the near future, such as a decline in demand for their workforce, automation, robotisation and job relocation. Therefore, it is very important to develop basic skills for low-skilled adults, which is the basis for improving the most advanced skills needed for future professions.

About the project
Objective of the project: To develop a European training programme, a serious game designed to acquire the necessary skills to enable firefighters and foresters to professionalise in fire prevention and fighting, taking into account the guidelines, rules and characteristics of each specific participating country. Target group: Workers (prevention and firefighting), private companies, professional associations, forest cooperatives, trainers, training centres and local/national/European public bodies involved in the training and prevention/firefighting sectors. Forestgame`s training system will be fully based online and will be available to the intended target groups. The project`s teaching approach is based on the Open Education Resources (EAC) approach. Open Educational Resources (OER) method, therefore, develops digital educational materials that will be available under a license allowing their free use and distribution. The ageing of the working population at European level is clear. This situation should be aligned with strategies to adapt work organisation, tasks and working conditions to the specificities of this group of adult workers. It will be multidisciplinary training covering the medical, physical, technical and mental aspects of the condition due to the high psychophysical demands of work. This will help to professionalise the entire European sector using a training tool that anyone can download. New technologies adapted to learning are the improvement of the learning process. These innovative learning tools, based on the use of IT, allow the use of interactive content. Through the serious game we plan to develop, we will provide more effective and flexible quality learning. Serious games are a motivating tool for users, because they correspond to significant learning, only playfully. They also promote teamwork and are available anywhere, at any time.

SEMA II: Sustainable Entrepreneurship based on Multifunctional Agriculture

About the project

The EU has clearly expressed the need for a more sustainable European agriculture. Multifunctional agriculture is at the heart of the newly formulated agricultural and rural development strategy, which aims to improve the sustainability of agriculture while not losing competitiveness on the European and global market. However, for most farmers, especially young farmers or family managers, the lack of basic skills needed for successful participation and implementation of EU measures is extremely serious. This is more often due not to a lack of attitudes or technical knowledge, but to a lack of economic, organisational and entrepreneurial skills. The SEMA II project addresses the links between multifunctional agriculture and the necessary entrepreneurial skills to young farmers or family managers. The project consortium consists of 5 different EU countries (PL, ES, LT, BE, DE) which demonstrate cooperation between the old and the new Member States of the European Union. Comprehensive cooperation has been established between research and consultation organisations (WUELS, IfLS), adult education organisations (DEFOIN, ARID), the European Organisation of Young Farmers (CEJA) and the Institute of Educational Technology (BETI).

About the project
Entrepreneurship training for teachers. Many teachers have not studied entrepreneurship, so they do not always use the right method of entrepreneurship teaching or think that the subject they teach has nothing to do with entrepreneurship. In order to improve teachers` understanding of entrepreneurship education, its aspirations, methods and content, it is envisaged to provide training for teachers and to disseminate information on various opportunities and methods to support entrepreneurial thinking. The aim of the training is to provide teachers with practical skills for coaching, teamwork, conflict resolution, innovative learning methods and to test them together with students. After completing the training, teachers will be ready to lead student practice in business enterprises and cooperation with mentors, as well as after the end of the project, teachers will ensure the continuity of the entrepreneurship project for new students. Entrepreneurship training for mentors. Properly trained mentors are an important part of the implemented model. If mentors are not trained, the skills, knowledge and skills they have to organise student practice may not be sufficient. The purpose of the training is to provide mentors with coaching, mentoring, entrepreneurial education, knowledge and skills. After completing the training, mentors will be ready to recruit students to practice, advise students during their workplace practice, and conduct practical entrepreneurship education training using business examples from their company`s fields of activity. Entrepreneurship training for students. The implementation of the entrepreneurial model aims to develop student entrepreneurship and activate their own business creation intentions through innovative cooperation between higher education institutions and social and business partners, using learning methods focused on the development of students` creativity and general abilities, applying the diversity of the study environment and mentoring. The purpose of the training is to develop students` personal, technical entrepreneurial and business leadership skills, to provide the knowledge necessary for the entrepreneur, the ability to use various technologies, to analyze real business cases and situations, and to overcome risk factors using analytical techniques and innovative methods. The model provides students with experience, allows to apply theory and integrate different functional areas of activity, requires teamwork, greater involvement in the real labour market, motivates students and allows to successfully develop entrepreneurship and see the consequences of decisions. After completing the training, students will be ready to practice in business enterprises, where they will continue their work-based learning. Application of the entrepreneurship education model in enterprises. After the training cycle, students start a practice in business enterprises, where practical assistance in the field of entrepreneurship education is provided by a mentor. Business practical training, mentoring a real business enterprise employee, provides excellent opportunities for the student to monitor and participate in the fields of employee management, accounting, procurement, sales and marketing management and business business processes in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Lithuania, Government resolutions and other normative documents. By applying an innovative model of entrepreneurship education, business employees (mentors) will help students to acquire entrepreneurial knowledge and skills in practice areas. Information system for entrepreneurship education. During the implementation of the project, an environment for the implementation of the entrepreneurship education model will be created - an information system, which will present self-assessment tests of personal abilities and characteristics, non-formal training programmes for entrepreneurship education, simulation simulation programs and games for entrepreneurship education, personal portfolios of user achievements, counselling, communication, cooperation and other measures to ensure the development of student entrepreneurship and the smooth running of the practice process. The Entrepreneurship Education Information System will expand the functionality of existing and currently under development other practice systems, giving their users access to the tools of the entrepreneurial education model. Both learners and representatives of businesses will be invited to communicate and collaborate on the social network, where they can share entrepreneurial knowledge, skills and even model new entrepreneurial ideas and plans according to the available model structure. The framework will also create open interfaces for the integration of institutional databases and academic information systems. The operation of the information system will ensure the successful execution of project activities and publicity of the results. Individual practical consultations of students. In the implemented model, theoretical training is combined with active self-employment. Students will also deepen their knowledge in the virtual space by learning independently in the e-learning system, when students` entrepreneurial practical skills will be strengthened. One of the most important tasks of self-learning is the business simulation model, which imitates the company and its external environment and the preparation of a business plan. During the self-employment of students, performing teamwork tasks in the business simulation model and preparing the business plan, individual practical consultations of Lithuanian business experts and teachers will be provided. The information system for entrepreneurship education will be used for consulting, students will be able to use the virtual environment moodle, Skype, e-mail, video conference. There will also be obvious counselling on the basis of student needs. Consultation of foreign experts from Spain and Ireland. Experts from Ireland and Spain applying the FAS model in their own countries will participate in the project to implement the adaptation of the FAS model to Lithuanian higher education institutions. Foreign experts will organize practical trainings on entrepreneurship education and provide business examples to students during their practice. The planned entrepreneurship education model is based on innovative learning methods such as role-playing games, business simulation, teamwork and other active learning methods based on practical experience of companies. Mixed student learning is also envisaged – interactive tests and video material will be presented in Moodle`s virtual learning environment. The implementation of the model for the implementation of innovative learning methods will also use practical situations and cases of companies implementing the FAS model. Student traineeships in business enterprises/associations. Self-employment will have to be completed with an initial business plan, which will be evaluated in the expert information system. Later, competitions for business ideas are organized. The 45 selected winners receive traineeships to irish and Spanish businesses or associations. Internship reports will be presented in the information system, and it is planned to encourage students to write internship blogs that could be commented on by other students and teachers and mentors. After internships, students will improve their business plans and be ready to present them during the practical fair. Student Practical Fair. Mentors and teachers involved in the project activities will evaluate the business ideas of students who have participated in internships, based on practical examples, which will be presented to employers, social partners and the public, organized during the student practical fair. Students` business ideas will also be evaluated by foreign experts who have provided advice - they will evaluate business ideas in the information system. After the end of the project activities, 2 business plans will be implemented.

Project name
SIMOLA – Situated Mobile Language Learning

About the project
The Project is proposed as an ICT Key Activity and has significant development component. However, this technical development can draw on previous design and development work by the technology partner. There will be an even stronger focus on pedagogies and practices to support adoption and promote integration with suitable networks and organisations. The project will:

  • Produce a lightweight and sustainable, mobile application for the Android Mobile OS to meet the specific needs of in-situ language learners. To include capture and uploading of text, photos, audio and video, group discussion areas, RSS syndication and widgets to embed in social network profile pages.
  • Develop pedagogies and practices that enable learners to take best advantage of the application capabilities in everyday incidental learning situations and foster reflection and discussion with other language learners in similar circumstances.
  • Design and carry out empirical studies to assess the impact of the system on learners‘learning, meta-learning, attitudes and confidence.
  • Foster adoption of the system through dissemination and exploitation activities, involving integration with relevant networks and initiatives supporting language learners living in the target language country.
Overall the project will deliver a technological platform and related pedagogical practises specifically developed for in-situ language learners. These will enable individuals to take note of and build on their everyday informal learning. They will also enable networks and organisations working with in-situ language learners to adopt novel, more engaging and more effective methods integrating formal and informal language learning. The project thereby addresses calls for partner countries to improve their service infrastructure for migrants and visiting students, and directly supports higher level EU strategies of strengthening linguistic competences and promoting cultural awareness.

Re-Mark

2008 - 2010

  The main aim of the ReMark project is to adapt an entrepreneurship e-learning package to the needs of potential knowledge-based entrepreneurs - mainly researchers, but also students and young graduates with technological/scientific knowledge, and test and disseminate it in Lithuania, Cyprus, Slovakia and Finland.

Project name
Re-Mark - From Research to Market

About the project
Knowledge-based entrepreneurship that turns research results into marketable products or services is highly valued and supported in the policies of EU countries as it adds to the competitiveness of any economy and is essential for achieving the Lisbon goals. However, intellectual entrepreneurship in Europe is still underdeveloped. Numerous studies show that lack of entrepreneurial spirit and knowledge are among the main constraints hindering researchers to pursue starting up their businesses. The main aim of the ReMark project is to adapt an entrepreneurship e-learning package to the needs of potential knowledge-based entrepreneurs - mainly researchers, but also students and young graduates with technological/scientific knowledge, and test and disseminate it in Lithuania, Cyprus, Slovakia and Finland. Project objectives include analysis of the current e-learning package and its adaptation to the needs of the target groups and participating countries; e-learning package transfer to Lithuania, Slovakia and Cyprus by translating it and placing in the project partners` websites; testing and evaluation of the e-learning package by the target groups; implementation of the valorisation strategy. The main outcome of the project will be an innovative e-learning package for knowledge-based entrepreneurship available online in Lithuanian, Slovak, Greek, Finnish and English. The project will also produce a number of results that will be used for valorisation purposes (valorisation plan, project website, leaflets, etc.), will help to promote the project and attract the representatives of target groups to test and evaluate project results. The evaluation will serve as a basis for improvements and preparation for further exploitation of the e-learning package. The e-learning package will help to fill in the gap in the entrepreneurial training addressing the group of potential entrepreneurs that are likely to develop high value-added, knowledge and new technology based business. Researchers, young graduates and students with outstanding scientific knowledge will gain additional skills that will allow them to turn their knowledge into commercial benefit by developing successful business. The project will contribute to the efforts to develop knowledge-based entrepreneurship in project partners` and other European countries.
