The Secretariat of the Adriatic Ionian Euroregion travelled to Brussels on November 9 and 10 for the kick-off meeting of the project Competitive Regions Employability of Adults through Education (CREATE), co-founded by the Erasmus Plus Programme of the European Commission.

CREATE aims to reducing geographic disparities in educational opportunities and outcomes across EU regions, by developing a toolkit for local policy makers for more efficient adult education. The 9 Partners from 8 countries jumpstarted project implementation by planning activities of Intellectual Output 1 to develop the CREATE Platform and Virtual Community. In addition, partners discussed the details of Intellectual Output 2 for the identification of policy instruments that can included in the CREATE toolkit.

The Euroregion will coordinate the policy analysis and mapping through its network of regional authorities across 6 countries, hence ensuring an appropriate width of the policy assessment and mapping for the CREATE project. Furthermore AIE will organize and host a multiplier event in Croatia in connection with the deployment of the CREATE Policy ToolBox to involve and engage stakeholders and participants to the domains of Adult Education And Training, local economic development and policy making at regional / local levels.
