The Research of Funding or Soft Loans has represented an useful tool aimed to:
collect information on the state of the art of the EU Agriculture (also further to the enlargement to new member Countries);
compare the situation in EU with the Campania and Italian reality;
identify and anticipate the needs of technical assistance / training / advising of the agricultural and agri-food operators (including the little sized entrepreneurs and agri-tourism operators) and of people living in rural areas.
it plans long-range innovative interventions;
it experiments new models of training as well as new advising interventions;
it sets up Partnerships to start long term co-operations on future actions within the sectors of interest.
As regards as the training sector, Serifo is implementing from many years , as Promoter / Coordinator and Partner, many EC projects (LdV, Grundtvig, LLP, and so on...); some of them are aimed to formalise new vocational training methodologies to encourage difficult targets (as over 50 y.o.
