The project InnovAgroWoMed aims to boost women employability and entrepreneurship in the Agri-food sector, an industry closely linked to the cultural identity of the Mediterranean region and showing a significant level of untapped potential in terms of innovation and growth.

35 women that aspire to launch an enterprise in the agri-food sector or working in this field have been selected to participate on dedicated training courses, accordingly.

CESIE, as partner of the project, is seeking for expert(s) in supporting start-up development as teacher(s) within the training course addressed to aspiring entrepreneurs in the agri-food sector. They will have to:

  • Accompaniment to the design and development of the business plan (at individual and/or per homogeneous groups).

The evaluation of candidatures will take into consideration:

  • Previous experiences in delivering training activities on the subjects of InnovAgroWoMed training course;
  • Knowledge about the Sicilian business context of the agri-food sectors;
