Projects & Initiatives


The INTERFACE project aims for the project partners to develop and test a pilot community training programme to enhance community innovation and entrepreneurship in a small number of selected fragile communities in each project partner country.


The background to the project is that research shows that the combination of youth and inexperience puts younger drivers at higher high risk of crashing than older drivers and that this is an issue that is common to all European countries, with some countries experiencing higher levels of road traffic accidents than others, but with the same social and economic consequences.


The project is focusing on micros and SMEs in two sectors, the Food & Drink and Life Science (assisted tech). The partnership has identified that enterprises in these two sectors are often involved in developing bespoke and niche products with limited production runs.
