The DARE project aims to boost diversity and inclusion in European SMEs, turning these aspects into opportunities for economic growth and innovation. The project plans to create resources for SMEs to better understand and leverage the benefits of diverse workforces. It seeks to innovate vocational education and training, addressing labour shortages by tapping into "invisible" talent pools, such as highly skilled immigrants. By promoting fair recruitment and retention practices, DARE aims to improve workplace equality, ultimately contributing to a more inclusive and dynamic European economy.

Project Activities

"DARE Competence Framework & Curriculum Development"

This publication establishes the need for diversity and inclusion training through a thorough review of current studies (knowledge), offers guidance on the implementation of the framework and curriculum (pedagogical), and shares best practices (empirical).

"Training Course Content Development & Knowledge Hub" Work Package

This enables the swift integration of DARE's diversity and inclusion modules into vocational education and training by developing top-quality teaching and learning resources that can be used flexibly in a diverse range of situations.

"Assessment App Into Action" Digital Hub

This aims to increase the managerial and organizational competences of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), particularly those struggling with labour market shortages, by putting our training resources "into action". This is accomplished through an interactive assessment web app and supportive "digital hub".
