Over the next 2 years, the start-up CIDET will coordinate the Intranet project Intrapreneurship net-playbook, an Erasmus+ KA2 passed this week by the European Union. Undertaken with partners from Poland, Holland, Slovenia and Hungary, the aim of this project is to encourage business  competences, and digital and soft skills, to promote employability, socio-educational development and professional growth.

The purpose of this European project is to favour the capacities of both the personnel already working in a company and the unemployed who wish to acquire certain competences that address innovation and improving teams. The objective is to increase the skills and competences of these two social groups, considered the main beneficiaries of this initiative. To do this, the European partners coordinated from Castellón (Spain) will create tools and activities based on information and communication technologies (ICT) that will use other multipliers; e.g., personnel being training and other educational institutions or training departments that form part of organisations.

The coordination of this project by CIDET, the company set up in the Espaitec 1 building at the Universitat Jaume I, secures this innovative company’s mission, which opts for enabling education and technologies to be used effectively for social and personal benefits. To this end, the company offers learning environments, educational materials and training activities that allow people to obtain further knowledge, values and attitudes.

“With this project, CIDET intends to promote the development of intrapreneurship skills and competences; that is, with teams and organisations for innovation and continuous growth”, states Roger Esteller, a CIDET researcher. “People must acquire skills and attitudes continuously, and  formally and informally; we refer to the skills that we wish to promote by non-formal educational activities and methods, such as creative thinking, adaptation or initiative, etc. We bear in mind today’s social context, where technology, globalisation and dynamics are fundamental characteristics that we all must face and use, we wish to provide training opportunities and manage knowledge via a network-based approach by making the best of the potentialities that the ICT provide us with to increase competences informally” Roger concludes.
