Exciting news on IO1 and IO2



The entire ENSURE partnership is proud and happy to announce that our IO1 product is finally completely ready and that it has been uploaded on our website TOOLS section for you all to consult, learn and be inspired by it! 🥳🎆

Given the wide amount of content of the Training Course Material, we chose to split it in six chapters, each tackling a different topic. The first five chapters:

Chapter 1 – Desktop research.

Chapter 2 – Business idea and feasibility assessment. Enterprise self-assessment.

Chapter 3 – Ideas and models to train and help entrepreneurs.

Chapter 4 – Plastics and Circular Economy. Opportunities and Challenges.

Chapter 5 – Management of Intellectual Property.

are comprised of notions that are fundamental for students but that can be really useful in refreshing/upscaling trainers’ knowledge on entrepreneurship and Circular Economy, in particular related to plastics. The sixth chapter:

Annex – Trainers’ Corner.

has been developed focusing on trainers and on how we as a partnership could help them in shaping their training methods and techniques in relation to Circular Economy, entrepreneurship, gamification and other topics.

We want to thank in particular our IO1 coordinator Cz&K CONSULTING SZOLGALTATO KORLATOLT FELELOSSEGU TARSASAG for their patience and relentlessness in guiding us all towards the completion of this activity and we want to thank all the other partners for their hard work and determination.


Thans to our IO2 coordinator Fondazione Edulife ONLUS we are not only on track but on a great track towards IO2’s completion, so please stay tuned for our next exciting news!

First LTTA in Budapest


Yesterday, Last week we met in Budapest to test and form ourselves to our IO1.

Partners proposed and participated in workshops and brainstorming activities related to circular economy, business models, entrepreneurship, plastics recycling and intellectual property.

We want to shout a huge thanks to the hosting partner Cz&K CONSULTING SZOLGALTATO KORLATOLT FELELOSSEGU TARSASAG for their great welcoming, organization and field activity on litter trap.

Also thanks to all the other partners for their contribution to the training activity. It was a great activity not only from pure testing and training of the materials but also for the great synergy that has arisen as days went by. Not to forget the incredible human interaction capital without which we would have had difficulties in achieving such heights in our results.

Good luck to everybody and see you soon for LTTA2 on IO2 in Verona.

We also started planning for IO2’s implementation, with the evaluation of our possibilities in its production.

First Output production update

In December 2020, the project ENSURE funded through the ERASMUS + KA202 call began. Its purpose is to develop training materials regarding the opportunities offered by Circular Economy in the plastics sector for entrepreneurs, future entrepreneurs and for VET trainers.

The decision-making process regarding the strategies to follow in the production of the first Output “ENSURE – Training Course Material” was challenging due to the need to limit the meetings between project partners to videoconferences only, but we managed to reach the conclusion of this path. For about two months, the works have been running at full speed.

We want to thank all the project partners for the commitment shown and for the splendid work done so far. In particular we want to thank the Lead Partner Chambre de Commerce Italienne de Nice, Sophia Antipolis, Côte d’Azur and the coordinator of the first Output Cz&K consulting szolgaltato korlatolt felelossegu tarsasag for the support and coordination given in all the activities.

We wish everyone good luck in the future of the project.
