The partners of OPEN Project (Open Innovation for Adult Learning) met on Jan 10-12, 2014 in Catania, Sicily for the project meeting hosted by the Italian Project partner, AROCCA. The partners presented the best practices in their countries on e-business and digital entrepreneurship for adult learning.
The OPEN Project which aims to develop a learning course in four thematic areas on open innovation is being achieved by four project partners; TAGES (Turkey), Inercia Digital (Spain), AROCCA (Italy) and Gecko (UK). The partners came together in Catania, Sicily on Jan 12-14, 2014 in order to complete the 4th module: “e-business and digital entrepreneurship for adult learning” of the learning guide.
In this respect, the best practices from 4 different countries, which will guide the adults who want to be an entrepreneur and understand the content and the use of e-business, were presented by the partners during the project. The best practice of Spain is about an online retailer of a unique class of Tomato called Raf, whose taste and morphology result in a high value product (Gourmet). The Italian partners presented a good story of Sediarreda Srl which uses e-business through the use of an online sales platform and social commerce for the online distribution of chairs and tables. The UK partners told the activities of Bohemia Design Limited which sales online clothes and accessorises. And Turkey presented the success of Markafoni as being one of the best practices in Turkey on e-commerce.
Moreover, some informative presentations related to 4th module were shared by the partners. One of the interesting presentations was “Paul’s e-commerce story”. If you want to learn about e-commerce, please watch the enjoyable video below:
