Erasmus+ KA2 – Strategic partnerships (2014-1-DE202-001391)
“Managing multigenerational workforces is an art in itself. Young workers want to make a quick impact, the middle generation needs to believe in the mission, and older employees don’t like ambivalence. Your move.” Harvard Business School “Working Knowledge”
The rationale for our project is partly rooted in the need of the labour market to establish a new balance between the generations. Our project is bridging the gap between the young (<30) and the older generation (55+), as well as between the “sectors” of adult education, vocational education and training in SMEs. Our mission is to foster Intergenerational Learning (IGL). Giving companies suitable instruments at hand we actively promote the co-operation and knowledge transfer between different generations in SMEs. This way we provide measures to handle challenging demographic trends and unlock innovative potential and competitiveness of companies.
The project is lead by IHK-Projektgesellschaft mbH. Further strongly commited partners are BFI Tirol from Austria, Mentortec from Portugal, FORTH from Greece and the Chamber of Commerce Terrassa from Spain.
