Waterpolis gathered a group of experts from SMEs, public and private VET providers, as well as the consortium IGTrain, in order to disseminate the results and key findings of IGTrain project, and to discuss during round tables possible developments on the matter of SMEs’ lifelong learning programmes.

The main aim of this conference and workshop was to identify and outline possible applications of IGTrain mentoring and work-based training processes in SMEs as a systematic strategy approach for the field of lifelong learning, and more specifically in terms of intergenerational learning (IGL) processes, taking into account the concepts designed, developed and implemented during the project in hand. The workshop gathered a group of 45 attendees globally (SME and CSO managers, VET experts, and active citizens in the field of education and training).
