The 2–year project is supported by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Programme and has 6 partners from 5 EU Countries (Spain, Turkey, Estonia, Poland and Romania).

SUI-FOOD project addresses those challenges through the development of a training: of which purposes are:
v To draft and validate a comprehensive qualification standard defining the professional profile of an internationalization manager in an agrifood start-up or SME including a description of required knowledge, skills and competences needed for this profile and a modular structured training pathway.
v To develop an e-learning platform to train the agrifood start-up and SMEs with the needed knowledge, skills and competence for them to become efficient internationalization manager, thus enabling them to develop further their businesses.
SUI-FOOD partners will use open and innovative education methods, embedded in the digital era.
For these purposes, training materials have been prepared by all partners. After that, the project partners started to apply this pilot test with 30 company representatives from their own countries. Participants of this training are agri-food industry business people invited from partners’ countries.
After the event, each partner was planned to carry out Local Replicator Activities (E activity) in their own country, but this activity could not be carried out due to Covid 19.
