The DEW official website represents a repository of the project’s outputs, results, news and contacts, and will be the OER platform for target groups to access DEW resources and training materials.
DEW is a Project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission that aims to create an operational solution to the challenges faced by existing and potential female entrepreneurs in a post-pandemic world. DEW aligns itself with key Erasmus+ priorities including:
• Inclusion and diversity in education and training
• Digital transformation
• Adapting VET 2 labour market and female entrepreneurship needs
• Increase flexibility of opportunities in VET
The DEW project aims to improve transparency and accountability of the participation of women’s’ entrepreneurs in enterprise by illustrating how women’s’ entrepreneurship is planned and coordinated across government and society, and by demonstrating the various innovative ways in which women’s’ entrepreneurship needs are being met or not met for gender equality.
The project officially kick-started on November 2021, with the first online transnational meeting during which partners had a great opportunity to discuss the overall project implementation schedule, define timelines and respective duties in the following months. One of the very first activities was the development, testing and implementation of the Open Educational Resources (OER) Platform.
DEW Platform is the main showcase of project’s results and its largest and most tangible channel for international visibility, and is available in 4 languages (EN, ES, IT, FR) with all of its content completely available for free, without requiring any kind of registration/identification by the user. DEW website is now online at https://www.dewproject.eu/.
For the next two years, the Platform will host and integrate all the main achievements of the consortium; each section of the DEW Platform is a stand-alone library of its corresponding output.
The “DEW Training Toolbox” embeds the training content together with accompanying resources such as operational cases, guidelines, good practices and glossary for enhanced contribution to the field of female entrepreneurship. This project result responds to the needs identified in the proposal, encompassing the need to bridge the gap between the entrepreneurial potential of women and the effective capacities and possibilities they have. As corroborated by the analysis of the state of the art, there is the need to provide operational and user-friendly training resources to advance the opportunities for women who have an entrepreneurial potential but are hesitant or don’t consider entrepreneurship as a viable career path.
In addition, the "Associates" section will be relevant to the widespread impact of the project, as organisations interested in the project will be able to join the DEW community and become associated partners.
