The Agricultural Alliance for Competence and Skills based Training (ACT) is a project that aims to facilitate and accelerate a better match between the needs of the agricultural labour market and the vocational educational training opportunities by engaging core actors from the complementary fields (VET, labour market and policy) in a constant and constructive dialogue. Practically, it aims to reduce the mismatch between new jobs and existing skills in the agricultural sector and to improve the agricultural curriculum design and delivery by innovative VET services and broad dissemination throughout whole Europe. The project is co-funded under the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP), Leonardo da Vinci Programme, (Development of Innovation type) and Agro-Know is one of the eight (8) project partners.
The ACT project holds its next project meeting in Rome, Italy between 10-12/12/2014 and Agro-Know will be represented by Charalampos Thanopoulos, our Customer Relations Manager and Agronomist, PhD. Charalampos has a long experience in the field of agricultural competences in the context of VET, gained through his participation in related Agro-Know projects including WACOM, AGRICOM and eCOTOOL, as well as CerOrganic.
