Leonardo Da Vinci Programme, Community Vocational Training Action Programme
This project, co-financed by the European Commission, was addressed to young graduates (coming from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Ludwig Maximilians Universität of Munich, and Ca' Foscari University of Venice) that had the opportunity to participate in a stage (for a maximum of sixth months). A total of 81 students, coming from the three partner Universities, had access to this training opportunity.

The SME can reach these objectives by means of young managers devoted to the development and/or modification of software for the automatic production processes and the administration of the enterprise. The vocational training was devoted to students and young graduates who would develop new skills in small and big European enterprises where the computerised organisation of the production and the management are continuously upgraded.
