Motivation, Skills & Entrepreneurship

This project will create mechanisms to support and facilitate the human capital transfer intended in the other work packages. In the project Best Agers themselves are the target group, as they must be activated to make the most out of their potential. Therefore, the partners will attempt to motivate retired experts and aged employees who have been inactive so far to get involved and contribute to business and skills development in the BSR or improve their entrepreneurial spirit.

Their self-image and attitudes will be analysed to identify methods to improve Best Agers’ motivation, and training curricula will be developed to complement their existing skills with those needed to contribute to the intergenerational transfer or human capital.

Best Agers will also be motivated and trained to become entrepreneurs themselves – after all, innovation sources do not always have to be young people.

The outputs and reports produced within this theme are available here.
