IHF was in Corridonia, Italy on November 15th and 16th for the Kick-Off Meeting of “Formazione per Agricoltura Sociale e Sviluppo Territoriale” (FASST), a Project co-founded by the Erasmus Plus Programme of the European Commission, Key Action 2, Strategic Partnerships for Vocational Education and Training.
FASST is implemented by a Consortium of 9 partners from 5 European countries (Italy, Belgium, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Spain). FASST will develop free online and face-to-face training modules to foster Social Farming entrepreneurial initiatives in Europe.
The Consortium kick-started the Project implementation by planning activities of Intellectual Output 1 to build the FASST Platform and Virtual Community. Then, partners outlined the details of Intellectual Output 2 by discussing the common methodology for the Capacity Gap Assessment.
The Kick-Off Meeting also represented a great opportunity for partners to agree upon the project logo and the web domain, in order to foster project visibility and to launch dissemination activities.
IHF asbl was established in Brussels in 2003 and acts as a platform to exchange and share ideas and knowledge on the process of EU integration. In FASST, IHF will carry out the analysis on Social Farming as a mean for social inclusion and economic empowerment at EU level; IHF will also be responsible of dissemination and exploitation activities at EU level.
