EUYOUTH4HEALTH: Engaging European youth in promoting health prevention
Coordinated by Avempace asbl, EUYOUTH4HEALTH aims to improve, enhance and enrich the training programmes that VET institutes and educators developed in the field of health promotion. By creating an innovative programme addressing unemployed people aged between 23 and 30 and targeting digital communication and marketing and development of partnerships with SMEs and public agencies working in the field of health prevention, the project will allow VET providers to transfer significant and relevant skills to the final beneficiaries (i.e., unemployed people) of their activities.
The project wants to achieve the following objectives:
- Pave the way for a better integration of groups of unemployed people (aged between 23 and 30) in the today job market, by working together on a definition and validation of a CV addressing skills gap in digital communication and marketing strategies for health prevention.
- Increase and update knowledge of groups of unemployed people by providing them with a new set of skills very useful for the today job market, particularly in their cities and countries.
- Increase the interaction between VET providers, groups of unemployed people and SMEs and public agencies/companies working in the field of health prevention, by creating interaction occasions for them aimed to improve their practices and to communicate more and better with the wider public (i.e., citizens).

Industry 4.0 Upskilling for SMEs (I4U)
The project aims to support the digital transition and Industry 4.0 skills upgrade for SMEs employees in labour intensive sectors such as engineering, mechanical, automotive, and manufacturing industries.
The project will develop a digital learning platform and deliver modular, short cycled ICT trainings for SME employees to comply with the Industry 4.0 technology skills’ needs, such as augmented reality, automation, and robotics. It will bring together, in a number of national ecosystems, SMEs in labour intensive sectors with Vocational Education and Training (VET) Schools and High Education Institutions (HEIs). The objective will be to build capacity on relevant digital competences and develop easy-to-access ICT training concepts.
The project’s objectives are to set up:
- One EU-wide digital training program delivered at workplaces to upskill and build capacity of SMEs employees to comply with Industry 4.0 requirements. The trainings will be made of 20 modular courses in a digital format which will be easy to adapt by each consortium partner for their own countries and context.
- One EU-wide digital learning platform to improve the knowledge transfer developed among consortium partners, other training providers and the general public and to keep the EU added value at its highest.
- Four country-specific digital learning ecosystems, one per each partner country, to engage the local SMEs community, VETs and HEIs to exchange ideas, formats and concrete initiatives to upskill SMEs employees.
