EU Project Experience

Some experience


Erasmus +

This project will assist women working or considering a career in construction.

FEMCON will increase the attractiveness of the industry for others, thus leading to a greater number of women choosing the sector. This will help women across Europe to become aware of their rights to equality in the industry and to utilise their skills in the industry towards their careers progression, thus creating conditions for positive change to happen, improving the industry outlooks and these groups’ quality of life.

Future Cast will assist in creating the reach tool for this project under result 1.  Our Creative communities project will support HEI educators to digitally transform their teaching methods via eservice learning and online hackathons thus increasing digital skills and rejuvenating small local communities in the process.
