A Community of Practice
for Staff and Faculty
Convening in small group learning environments,
the model consists of three components:
- Utilising educational technology formulated
specifically for collaborative learning provides
participants with a virtual space in which to
share ideas and data, and refine those ideas
by applying critical thinking and problem-solving.
Coursework toward the acquisition of 21st
Century skills delivered via e-learning mechanisms.
- The EYENEET Community of Practice brings
together mentors who have been trained as
facilitators of learning to improve their capacities
to implement knowledge-building communities in
their working environments, whether at an institute
of higher education, a community-based training
center or via the Internet.
- Linkages are made with public employment
services (PES) to connect jobseekers with employers
to pursue sustainable employment, with local
entrepreneurial ecosystems to connect programme
participants interested in pursuing a pathway to
entrepreneurship, with educational institutions for
reintegration in the education systems, and with the
public sector for social participation and civic engagement.

consortium to support the growth of small-
and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
through technology with a focus on the
AgriFood sector in the Atlantic region.
Programme partners represent R&D,
training, higher education, technical
assistance providers toward internationali-
zation and public/private partnerships.
EYE was devised as a training model
that provides the building blocks for the
acquisition of Knowledge Economy skills
for success in entrepreneurship, the
workforce and in education. The model
begins with an exploration of The Future
of Work and Industry 4.0, moving on to
acquiring the mindset of an entrepreneur,
competences through distance learning
coupled with activities and services
within a localized entrepreneurial ecosystem.
with clarion calls for education reform
and activity to promote socio-economic
development and social cohesion in
areas around the world. The model
is available worldwide.
Our project supports the growth of small
and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs),
with a focus on agri-tech and the food
industry and a secondary focus on tourism.
This project will characterise the sectoral
pressures on internationalisation experienced
by AgriFood SMEs in the Atlantic Area.
The methodology will contribute to the
joint implementation of a suitable process
of innovation for internationalisation as an
adaptable and adoptable toolkit. The outputs
will assist industry stakeholders, regional
authorities and policymakers better under-
stand sectoral pressures affecting growth
in order to establish sustainable pathways
to internationalisation in the AgriFood and
related sectors in the Atlantic Area.

EYENEET is a 12-country consortium to prepare
individuals to be socialized into a world-wide
knowledge-creating culture through technology.
to facilitate the acquisition of skills required in the
Knowledge Economy and demanded by the workforce
through technology formulated specifically for knowledge
building plus e-learning. The project targets NEETs that
include youth who are unemployed and underemployed,
and those not gainfully employed in sustainable work
The EYE Training Model For
Acquiring Knowledge Economy Skills
supports entrepreneurship trainng via
seven components working together to
equip beneficiaries of a complete
ecosystem of training, including
training the trainer in the use of
information and communication
- Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Competitiveness;
- Social Inclusion, Youth Employment/Unemployment/NEETs
and Poverty Reduction
- Environment, Alternative Energy, Technology, Smart Cities
Opportunities to Collaborate
To address society-wide issues toward
producing positive outcomes and intellectual
outputs while convening stakeholders around:
Our E-Corner is the content curator for our cross-border collaborations. It is more than just a repository of information and insights on the challenges
faced, solutions proposed, resources marshaled or research findings around the issues of programming sponsored under the EYE umbrella. Under
each of our programmes, the E-Corner serves a distinct function:
- UnderEYE TRAINING, the E-Corner helps our beneficiaries engaging in entrepreneurship as a job or gaining employment in traditional fields, bring
their ideas to life and create value for their entrepreneurial endeavors by curating content. A digital catalogue associated with a content curator platform
displays media-rich postings to connect with each other. Here, they are able to display what they have learned from the experts in developing their project,
and where they can learn from each other. This is a benchmark of entrepreneurship and an important interpretation of EntreComp competences.
specifically for knowledge-building learning communities. The programme supports collaborative learning around a experiential communication audit
project, where participants are exposed to a real-world working environment to increase skills in the areas of communication, teamwork, research
and analysis. Their exposure to real-world problems will task them to come up with solutions that involve critical thinking and creativity. EYENEET
participants thus become marketable candidates as potential entrepreneurs while also being prepared for the 21st Century workforce. The E-Corner
serves as a repository for research on the development of entrepreneurial ecosystems in our region.
- Under Interreg, the E-Corner also hosts a digital catalogue of products and services offered by the SMEs receiving technical assistance from
the AgriTour Tech Atlantic project.
The EYE Community of Practice resides on our digital platform as a method of bringing together staff, faculty and others who train and
mentor beneficiaries. This virtual community of practice allows its members to network and communicate on a regular basis to share
information and experiences tolearn from each other and develop their professional capacities as trainers and mentors. It is also the space
EYE partners and organizers access to share information and communicate about the project's progress. The EYE CoP contains a
repository of informational resources that can help expand training options and stay abreast of publications, research and other information
pertinent to the work accomplished through EYE.
The EYE CoP also organizes the "train the trainer" workshops for the diverse needs of our projects.
