The baSE project (Blueprint for advanced skills and trainings in the social economy), kicked off in Bilbao and Mondragon, in the Basque Country. The baSE project is co-funded by the EU Erasmus+ programme, and aims to develop a European strategy to address skills mismatches and provide new skills particularly in the digital and green areas regarding occupational profiles in the Social Economy and Proximity sector.
The project is lead by Mondragon University in close cooperation with Social Economy Europe and DIESIS network. A project at the service of the EU social economy community and will last for four years by building bridges with other existing blueprints as the B-WISE project.
The Blueprint’s primary goals are: develop a sector skills strategy; design concrete education & training solutions; establish a long-term action plan, and address skills mismatch and unemployment.
To achieve this, the project gathers 25 partners from 10 EU Member States. A European multi-stakeholder consortium involving: social economy enterprises and entities, education, and training providers, research institutions, social partners as well as social economy experts. The baSE project will promote knowledge exchange among higher education, vocational education, and training providers, as well as social economy actors who make a significant contribution to important ecosystem growth.
The anticipated outcome will provide the impetus for supporting the proximity and social economy ecosystems through sectorial and cross-sectorial activities
