The kick-off internal meeting of the Report-ASAP

The kick-off meeting of the project was held at Staffordshire on 25 & 26 October 2017 and hosted by the Staffordshire University - Business School, which leads the project. Representatives from all 7 partners (Staffordshire University, Business School - UK, Business School PAR - Croatia, CIVIC Computing - Scotland, FGUGREM - Spain,  Ruse Chamber of Commerce and Industry - Bulgaria, AKNOW - Greece) met to plan the activities for the next six (6) months of the project.

The overall aim of the Report-ASAP is to provide the necessary training and tools for SMEs to adopt sustainable accounting and reporting practices in a cost-effective way. During the first stage of the project the partnership will carry out a needs analysis in the six partner countries to establish a knowledge gap framework. This consultation will launch early in 2018. The partnership will then produce a training course, and online training tool and a trainers’ guide. These will be supported both by the ECVET skills framework and by the Open Badges achievements recognition framework.
