Within the #keepup project, partners join forces to develop new learning and training materials on enhancing digital competences, e-commerce skills and climate adaptive entrepreneurial knowledge. Within the 27 months project, #keepup will develop the following outputs:
Learning materials on digital competences
The module on enhancing digital competences support SMEs to face difficulties and deficiencies in the digital area. Will be possible to learn about the advanced-level use of internet and how is possible to benefit from it as conscious users or admins. With the help of these skills, small rural businesses will be able to exploit the ICT opportunities and manage their work in a more efficient way while also achieving cost savings. Digital tools and methods will be introduced which support the workflow, time and financial management such as project management, task manager, accounting tools or online banking functions.
Learning materials on e-commerce skills
The virus is expected to have a long-term impact on consumer shopping habits and can accelerate the shift to online retail, since, according to a recent study, those who mostly choose online shopping in the pandemic period will continue to buy online after the crisis. The learning materials will focus on how to deal with the obstacles of starting to sell products and services online: inter alia, online customer service, payment methods, logistics, rights & responsibilities and online marketing. All the major information needed in order to start an e-commerce market will be covered.
Learning materials on climate adaptive entrepreneurial knowledge
Climate change affects both the demand and the supply side. Floods, mudslides, landslides, soil erosion are just few of the risks that businesses face due to the climate change. #keepup project aims to facilitate the preparedness of SMEs and point out the importance of enhancing awareness-raising about climate change and its consequences and the necessity of increasing the motivation to participate in adaptation and mitigation.
Development of the e-learning platform
An online learning platform will be developed in the project which will be available on this website.
