Joint University and Small and medium-sized enterprises Training. JUST platform has been launched
JUST (Joint University/SME Training) aims at bridging the gap between the world of education and the world of work, by bringing together Universities (HEIs) and SMEs to develop coherent, relevant and up-to-date curricula.
This user-friendly platform has been developed by the Spanish partner of the consortium, IWS (Internet Web Solutions), and will be constantly updated by the partnership as a whole during the project implementation. The platform is available in five languages (English, Spanish, Slovakian, Italian, and Slovenian) and consists of the following parts, optimised for different devices and browsers:
HOME: the section introduces users to the JUST platform by highlighting:
PROJECT: serves as a project manifesto, including information on background, mission statement and how JUST will develop innovative operational tools to equip HEIs to broker collaborations with SMEs
PARTNERS: describes the Partners involved in the project.
IMPLEMENTATION SUITE: This section will host two important documents for the project:
TRAINING: consists of training materials tailored to the most wanted skills required by employers from graduates, divided into 4 skill clusters (in a free, multilingual mode):
MODEL: The JUST Model (with tools and template docs) will allow HEIs to engage SMEs in a more structured and purposeful way.
ASSOCIATES: to involve as many Associated Partners as possible and spread the word about JUST to users, targets, the general public and ultimate beneficiaries.
NEWS: to be up to date with JUST's latest developments.
IWS will be the tech partner, in charge of the creation of the platform, its maintenance, adaptation and functioning, also contributing to the implementation of all project steps and deliverables
JUST is managed by nine partners from five countries, i.e., Italy, Spain, Belgium, Slovakia and Slovenia and is co-financed by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission.
