Cerasmus+ kick off meeting in Perugia
6 countries, 8 partners, 2 years, 3 main objectives: the Cerasmus+ project has started with the kick off meeting held in Perugia, at the headquarters of TUCEP, the coordinating partner.
Funded by the European program Erasmus+, the project aims to protect the European traditional heritage, to modernize the ceramic sector and to develop vocational training in ceramic craft industry enhancing work based learning models.
The main objectives were made clear during the first transnational meeting. Led by the coordinator (TUCEP, Italy) and AEuCC (European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation Cities of Ceramics), the partners will create European network of ceramics stakeholders (VET providers, craft businesses, public authorities, cultural institutions, research centres) to analyse the sector needs for competences, valorization of the urban environment and business start-up and elaborate new vocational trainings models with a work based learning approach, in order to strengthen the sector value at cultural, social and economic level.

Is there a place for an artist of dual citizenship with Italy to be involved in this interesting program?
thank you for your comment. If you wish to be involved in the activities of the project, please register as Stakeholder (https://cerasmus.eu/project/stakeholders/) to receive the assessment needs questionnaire and news about the future activities.
An excellent idea. The possibilities are huge.
I would make two points for consideration, however :-
1. During the early period of inception and development – care should be given to the maintenance and enhancement of standards when promoting projects within the ‘umbrella’. Perhaps this is already partly answered by the phrase ‘new vocational training models’ – in the above paragraph.
2. The sector is partly – perhaps mostly made up of individual artist and craftsmen/women – who, however encouraging they might wish to be, will have limited access to funds for travel, seminars, exhibitions etc
thank you for your message.
As you are registered as stakeholder, you will receive the assessment needs questionnaire to help us develop the trainings.
The Cerasmus+ project, at the moment, only foresees trainings for the project partners. However, we will spread the results to all the stakeholders.
If you have any other questions or doubts, don’t hesitate to ask.
