EU-REKA: Developing self-employment opportunities for vulnerable adults facing Covid-19 consequences
The “EU-REKA” project is a transnational initiative involving five European countries (Italy, Spain, Greece, Austria and the Czech Republic) aiming at the implementation of a learning and guidance pathway for the opening of a start-up or an SME by adults with fewer opportunities, who have been affected by the employment crisis triggered by the epidemic of Covid-19. According to data provided by EUROSTAT, in Europe, 2,7 million of people have lost their job between 2020 and 2021.
As a result, the project’s main target groups are adults who were excluded from the labour market because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Increase the entrepreneurial skills of participants with fewer opportunities
Stimulate self-employment against unemployment
Create a network of contacts among European entrepreneurs who can support each other
Contribute to disseminating European policies, opportunities and funding programmes for entrepreneurship
Give public and private institutions the opportunity to improve their services to the community by replicating learning outcomes
Increase the employees’ entrepreneurial skills
Enlarge the network of partner organizations for future projects
Collection of good practices at local and national level on the employment situation in partner countries
Implementation of learning sessions to EU-REKA beneficiaries:
Presentation of the European situation and good practices in employability
Measurement of the market’s size with the use of TAM SAM SOM method analysis
Creation of a business plan
Methods of finding funding European opportunities and platforms to consult
Group simulation and introduction to the Joint Mobility event
Blended Mobility training activities for the opening of a start-up
