About SLIM

Stimulating Learning for Idea-to-Market is a two-year EU-funded project implemented in 2012–14 under the Lifelong Learning Programme (Leonardo da Vinci – Transfer of Innovation). This project addresses Leonardo priorities, as it works on personal, industrial, national and EU scales. It directly addresses personal development aims, as it will train and support staff in the acquisition and use of knowledge and skills.

Fostering entrepreneurship is widely considered as a condition for economic growth and thus a smoother transition towards a more prosperous economy is ensured. Several studies underlined the gap between the supply and demand of knowledge, both in quantity and relevance, often resulting in a deficit of business skills and competences. The SLIM project has been developed to bridge this gap.

Business development through innovation is a key issue for Europe, with significant and consistent gaps in innovation performance and entrepreneurship culture between Europe and global leaders. It is therefore a very important topic area for Europe and one which VET system need to address, since some of the key gaps are in the small firms and in those starting business and trying to innovate with a need to create a more favorable societal climate for entrepreneurship. SLIM Project is an answer to this issue.
