Brief description
This research project on politico-economic advanced education for small and medium-sized businesses concentrates on the crafts sector. Its purpose is to create special offers for managers and key communicators in craft organisations in order to strengthen business competences and compensate for competitive disadvantages.
In the course of this project advanced educational needs will be explored (or researched!!!) and more specific educational modules will be created. Following this, four related activities per year will be set up. A special focus will be on topics such as globalisation and the European Union, structural changes and consumer trends, innovation and family business policies.
