The project COOPilot landed in Greece, with a pilot training on social economy and cooperatives involving over 100 participants.
COOPILOT, co-financed by DG Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs of the European Commission, aims at tackling unemployment by promoting cooperative entrepreneurship. The Social Economy Institute from Athens, Greece organized the second meeting of the project partners on 25 September, and on 26-27 September the pilot training on social economy and entrepreneurship, with the participation of experts from the Italian Federazione Trentina per la Cooperazione bringing best case experiences to all participants.
A number of further trainings will be organized, as COOPilot transfer competencies from the more advanced countries in the field of cooperatives (Belgium, France, Italy and Spain) towards the less advanced ones (Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Cyprus).
See you in Cyprus with the next training session!
