Cerasmus+ faces the challenges of global competition, loss of skills, difficulties of getting into the market and lack of financial resources and economic capacity, relying on three pillars: Heritage, Innovation and Network.
The main output of Cerasmus+ consists of 6 training curricula, for initial and continuing VET, on the topics of:
– Tradition and Innovation: aimed at improving the ceramic craft sector value chain with reference to production techniques which keep together tradition and innovation (i.e. 3D printing, Photoshop for industrial tiles lines);
– Urban Environment: aimed at improving the valorisation of urban environment through ceramics craft with reference to methodologies for enhancing networking between VET and ceramic craft industry;
– Business start-ups: aimed at improving the support for ceramics craft business start-ups with reference to the protection of the EU traditional heritage, and of the strengthening and modernization of the ceramic sector value.
