COLLABORATE | LEARN | GROW
From our beginnings, we have worked focused on boosting entrepreneurship and innovation from Cantabria, always looking at the national and international scene.
Thanks to the good practices developed in the latest years, to our capacity of working in a networking of hundreds of organisations from the public and private sector, and to the scalability of all our initatives, we have been endorsed by the European Commission to lead several projects that foster entrepreneurship and the soft skills of people around the continent.
All digital training and on-site programmes we develop at CISE boost the development of the competencies that the EU has defined within the ‘EntreComp’ framework and which companies are looking for when hiring talent.
As well as defining the skills and attitudes that the ‘entrepreneurial spirit’ involves, EntreComp serves as a guide to create the policies needed to develop the essential soft skills for both personal and professional growth.
In order to design and implement different European Projects we lead, we work together with universities, innovation centres, cooperatives and business associations from Finland, Portugal, Slovenia, Italy, Spain, Belgium and UK.
Youcoope has designed online and on-site training modules containing innovative resources, methodologies and tools so that educators can apply actual cooperative entrepreneurship experiences and skills to their lessons. The project seeks to encourage European educational institutions -both secondary education and higher education – to include the cooperative model in their curricula.

Within the Erasmus+ context, BLUES designed its own methodology and created online and on-site educational resources that were based on the best European practices and the EntreComp framework. Both the MOOC and the face-to-face pilots helped undergraduates develop skills such as leadership, critical thinking, teamwork or innovation, complementing their academic training.
Through the design and implementation of innovative training activities in secondary and higher education, ECOOPE developed several pilot programmes in collaboration with local co-ops to motivate and boost the cooperative model amongst European youngsters, as the tool for them to acquire the social and entrepreneurial skills fostering their employability.
This project will leverage the implementation of EntreComp, the European reference framework, as the tool that the education sector can use to focus on the soft skills needed to foster the development of citizens with an entrepreneurial mindset, who, through their actions can generate social, cultural and economic growth.
This iniatiative will seek to strengthen businesses within the travel & tourism sector, making them more sustainable through tailored training and peer-to-peer transfer of knowledge. The acceleration process will boost the creation of innovative solutions with the help of a coach for each SME and the development of groundbreaking strategies for new business models.
