The project will involve participants from different countries across Europe and the expected results will have an impact locally and regionally, nationally and internationally.
In terms of general approach, the R.E.M.I.D.A.project, its activities and its work plan, have been structured in such a way as to ensure a constant balance (input-> feedback-> output) between impacts at local and European level. Therefore, the primary indicators of impact at the geographical level will be those relating to the extent to which the products of the project will be distributed in the 8 countries involved (Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Spain, Romania, Greece, Portugal).
At the end of the project, the participating organizations will include the project products in their daily activities, in their distance learning platforms, enriching their offer training. In addition, they will disseminate the project results in their national and international network of professional training and higher education organizations.
The project and its products have been defined to be fully integrated and in line with regional public policies that address the issue of social and economic exclusion of disadvantaged individuals, especially adults (eg ESF). In the framework of these policies, the model developed by R.E.M.I.D.A. will adapt perfectly to the actions related to training, orientation, support for job inclusion of the target group.
The project will also have a national impact, the EdA system and the central administrations of all partner countries (eg MIUR in Italy) will be able to use the materials and resources implemented by the project as a good practice to increase the quality of the adult education with a view to (re) socio-economic integration. At national level, in fact, most partner countries have implemented measures to contrast the phenomenon (for example in Italy the PON Social Inclusion, SIA – Support for Social Inclusion). In addition, the existing national networks owned by the partners will be strengthened with the entry of new members.
As previously mentioned, the number of managers, operators, PA experts involved in the focus group activities, needs analysis and validation, will act as impact indicators to national level.
The project is fully in line with the indications and policies defined by the EU for contrasting the social and economic exclusion of disadvantaged adults, with particular reference to individuals in possession of low qualifications (Council Recommendation of 15/02/2016 on the inclusion of long-term unemployed in the labor market and Council Recommendation of 19/12/2016 on paths to improve the level of skills: new opportunities for adults). The products of the project and its results can contribute effectively to give substance to these policies through:
- The implementation of “motivation and awareness measures, including raising awareness of the benefits of improving the level of skills …”
- The definition of methodologies and tools that intervene in favor of “people most exposed to long-term unemployment” such as “those with poor skills or qualifications, third-country nationals, people with disabilities and disadvantaged minorities”.
