Skills for Enterprise Development (S4E) Launch event - Skilling up the Western Balkans agri-food sector: digitalising, greening

The European Training Foundation’s project ‘Creating the future of Skills in the Agri-food sector’ focuses on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) active in the agri-food sector. It builds on the national Smart Specialisation processes and the Joint Research Center’s analysis of Western Balkan agri-food value chains to address the skills needs of agri-food niche markets with growth potential.  

The ETF’s aim is to provide support to Western Balkan economies in linking SMEs and vocational education and training providers for innovation, productivity-enhancing skills and quality of work.  

This event will bring together SME’s, business associations, industry clusters, and various national stakeholders in the area of agri-food, and Smart Specialisation from the Western Balkan region to discuss the opportunities and challenges as regards what role skills play in digitalising and greening the agri-food sector.
