MICRO supports the development of basic and transversal skills (such as entrepreneurship, ability to operate in the EU Single Market, self-employment) in an innovative way: the innovative method of MICRO relies on its bottom-up and demand driven approach while consolidating on the expertise and experience of VET practitioners and technical experts. The innovative method also relies on the openness of approach in the utilization of results, making MICRO an open platform not only for
training and capacity building, but also for networking, cross-border transaction facilitation and match-making throughout EU for rural microenterprises
MICRO also supports the development of high quality work-based VET solutions that are close –if not already embedded- into the labour market and can be implemented at work-base level within existing microenterprises (to enhance the competitiveness of already existing craft-type of enterprises and microenterprises to tap into EU single market and cross-border transactions) as well as in prospective micro-craft enterprises and entrepreneurs in rural areas.
MICRO supports the integration of digital solutions and ICT in learning, teaching and training by developing, testing and validating and finally deploying at full scale a Open Educational Resource that will allow project results to be readily available outside the realm of the partnership and in other EU entities and countries, especially for microenterprises in rural areas.
