S.Ma.R.T. started it work on the curricula with a need analysis, which consisted in a secondary research to better circumstantiate all the different issue and aspects of the topic and define more specifically the focus of all single sections of the new curriculum.

In parallel, a field analysis was carried out organising series of focus groups with SMEs representatives and students to identify the skills needs.

Both activities allowed to outline the content, structure and model of the new curriculum aimed to provide young students with an integrated set of high skills of economic, business, and commercial skills, leadership and communicational and relational competencies to support agri-food SMEs to enter, remain and develop in international business circuits. All partners (HEIs, chambers and business representatives) have validated the new curriculum of 20 ECTS during transnational and virtual meetings and meetings.

Additionally an online learning seminar was hold from the 17/06 to the 23/06, in which members of all project partners participated. In September 2021 the third project meeting was hold virtual.

The next steps to do are the development of the interactive educational videos and the PlaS games. The results will be discussed at the fourth project meeting scheduled to be f2f in February in Poznan, Poland.
