Project summary

There is a gap between skills in the labor market and needs of graphic media SMEs. It’s not about technical knowledge but about efficiency of production. Besides, for employees in SMEs there’s little knowledge available in part-time VET institutes and there are few possibilities for this, as the demands that companies are facing are new. Production must be increasingly effective and fit the needs of the customer. Developments are moving fast, it is difficult to remain connected to the changes. This is reflected in a study of the European social partners in graphic media in Europe, published by Intergraf, representing 23 national printing federations in 20 European countries. Aims and objectives•Improving LEAN manufacturing & marketing skills of management and/or employees in graphic media SMEs;•Improving the competitive position of SMEs by more effective and efficient production;•make a translation of aspects that have impact on culture in countries in general and on culture of companies in those countries;•Improve level of entrepreneurship to better compete with other suppliers outside the industry or Europe.•dissemination of project results through employers associations and EGIN network in the languages of partners and offering the trainings to other European countries. •gained knowledge must be deployed to the market. Companies are good at relationships, but less at marketing. To sell the additional capacity and better connect to changing needs of clients, they should invest on marketing;•development of courses to upskill employers’ knowledge, to remain connected to the demand of competences in SMEs and to offer new entrants these skills in (PT) VET, to be better prepared to demands of SMEs.
