With the outputs and materials offered by the project, companies will for the first time be able to strategically analyse their individual potential on the 4 dedicated acting levels and deduct individual strategies and actions to develop solutions and support for their own organisation instead of being forced to wait for slow political decisions and actions on regional, national and European level. to develop concrete action strategies on the basis of the potential scanner results.
The ELEVATE project has been developed to provide companies and organisations with an innovative tool to assess and identify their individual potentials, deduct innovative solutions for VET provision, work organisation, diversity and inclusion of crucial target groups to develop their personal and company based solution / approach to tackle their shortage of skilled workforce, this also includes a special investigation and development focus on the potentials and solutions through information technology and digitalisation.
With this main focus and selection of priorities the ELEVATE project will allow companies and organisations to thoroughly analyse their individual situation and potentials concerning tackling the problem of shortage of skilled workforce and to develop their tailored solution for it instead of sit and wait for political decisions and measures which will probably come more later than sooner.
