Rumania, España,Grecia, Portugal, Bélgica, Italia The footwear industry in EU producing high- added value consumer products, and employs almost 290,000 people. This number is stable since 2011 despite the high unemployment rates in these years in the traditional manufacturing countries because European footwear is well appreciated by worldwide consumers as illustrate exports to non-EU countries that have increased by 40% in quantity and 90% in value from 2009 till 2016. Globalisation of production and the low-cost workforce in Asia combined with lifestyle changes and environmental concerns pose challenges and opportunities. In order to enhance companies’ competitiveness, special attention should focus on the workforce, and equip them with the necessary skills to deliver technological innovation changes aiming at improved manufacturing infrastructure in order to rationalise production, reduce product costs and anticipate to consumers expectations. Driven by creativity and innovation, footwear products manufactured in Europe can be considered as scientifically-led technical items with distinct quality. To retain this key advantage over competition, the EU industry has to keep investing on technological and non-technological innovations.With the introduction of advanced technologies (such as 3D CAD – CAM – CAE, 3D scanning and rapid prototyping), and environmental, legal and quality concerns, ethical and sustainability guidelines, the qualification requirements in the footwear industry have to adapt. This change requires a focus on non-technological aspects to provide the sector with a better know-how and provision of new and improved skills.Consumers also demand personalised and differentiated products that are safe and sustainable in line with the 2017 EU Circular Economy Strategy and the determination towards a decarbonised economy. Such vision is also underlined in the 2015 study “Footwear Consumer 2030” of the Portuguese Footwear Association. Footwear quality and performance are determined during the design process. Commonly, shoe development is by “trial and error”, where several prototypes are made and assessed before selecting the one to manufacture. This is a fragmented and empirical process since only a subset of quality parameters is considered and this is done almost intuitively. Usually, practitioners focus on technical issues mostly related to dimensional fitting basically addressing the design of shoe lasts. Similarly, the circular economy initiative raises new standards in the selection of materials and processes to address the full shoe life-cycle from design and manufacture to use and disposal. Unfortunately, the lack of dedicated schools and training infrastructure across EU hampers the development of the new qualification sector’s needs.The Alliance will thus revise the footwear life-cycle, and incorporate new knowledge into the design process in order to provide a scientific basis for drastically improved sustainable and comfort products. Fostering smart specialisation, developing new skills and professional paths will enhance employees’ creativity and strength, rendering the corresponding professions more attractive to young people who should replace more than 100,000 retired workers by 2025 (European Sector Skills Council, Report 2014).
Strategic Partnerships for adult education 01/10/2016 Athletic Association of Ireland Limited, Cestou zdraví z.s., U.I.S.P. TERRITORIALE CIRIE’-SETTIMO-CHIVASSO, GDYNSKIE CENTRUM SPORTU,LJUDSKA UNIVERZA, ZAVOD ZA IZOBRAZEVANJE IN KULTURO, ROGASKA SLATINA, UMH República Checa, Irlanda, Italia, Polonia, Eslovenia, España MemTrain aims to share knowledge and expertise of professional sports trainers, brain trainers, scientists, psychologists and experts in safety in sports in the area of combining physical excercise and brain training. The international exchange of know-how is very important for the success of the project.During the project we will create a professional training manual which will be used to promote the healthy ageing of older adults, specifically those aged 55+. The manual will be focused not only on sports, but on physical activity combined with brain activity which is a combination proven to enhance the health status of the seniors for higher quality of life and also for a possible better inclusion to the labour market
Small Collaborative Partnerships in Sport 01/06/2017 Palacký University, UMH, University of Gloucestershire Reino Unido, República Checa, España RISK is a grass-root coach education programme which aims to support the health and well-being of young people. There are serious short and long-term health-related consequences of sustaining a sport injury in childhood, however, injury prevention programmes have been shown to reduce injury incidence in youth participants. Such programmes are usually coach-led and require coaches to have the knowledge and expertise to effectively deliver them. RISK will develop and deliver a pilot coach-education workshop, with associated materials, in the UK, Spain and the Czech Republic, to up-skill coaches to effectively adopt, adhere and comply with injury prevention programmes. An evaluation of the effectiveness of the workshop and materials will help adapt and refine the final materials. These will be made accessible to a range of sporting organisations to help coach educators deliver the workshop and grass-root coaches enhance their knowledge to confidently implement injury prevention strategies with youth performers. The desired impact at both a national and European level is an increased awareness of injury prevention programmes for youth sport performers and adoption/use of the workshop and website materials by coach educators and by grass-root coaches themselves. This will contribute to improvements in knowledge and understanding of injury prevention amongst grass-root coaches and provide them with the skills to implement and adhere to such programmes in their work. Adoption of these programmes will increase the welfare and well-being of youth sport performers by reducing injury risk and injury incidence and the associated short and long-term health consequences.
Capacity Building in the Field of youth 01/04/2017 Kolleg für Management und Gestaltung

und nachhaltigiger Entwicklung gGmbH, UMH

Alemania, España The project’s objective was to make use of a strategic mix of new media elements to sensitize and empower young people in six countries for climate change issues and renewable energy. This has been done by the production of audio visual products during two youth encounters in Chile and Germany where the participants from Germany, Spain, Greece, Ecuador, Costa Rica and Chile (all partners from the same consortium as now besides Costa Rica) not only learnt how to communicate the complex and complicated interrelatedness of the issues of climate change, energy, poverty and north-south relations. The participants also acquired skills in disseminating these products through their youth culture communication channels and by launching a multimedia competition. The present project will pick up several elements of the project regarding the production of audio visual material so to being able to feed a transmedia story. The production will be part of the seminars and capacity building.
