ARTCademy is an Erasmus+ vocational training project granted in the 2018’s call of key actions, that is being developed by a consortium of 8 partners from 7 European countries (Spain, Italy, Poland, Romania, Belgium, Slovakia and Cyprus) and it aimed at showing, caring for and strengthening the valuable cultural heritage made up of traditional European craftsmanship, by making its enormous variety and wealth visible through CraftPedia and also contributing to the business training of micro-enterprises, artisan men and women who integrate them, so that they develop their management capacities for being more competitive in the global market.
