The CO-FARM project aims at developing a flexible training system based on Case Studies that will provide
rural entrepreneurs, rural landowners and farmers with skills and knowledge to implement initiatives of
cooperation amongst farming entrepreneurs.
People living in rural areas are a group that are at risk of exclusion, therefore access to vocational
education and training (VET) is an important alternative for accessing information and education. To make
access to training easier and in order to overcome barriers, training materials from the CO-FARM project
will be flexible and available free of charges.
The project started in November 2016 and will last for a total of 30 months. The consortium is made up of 8
partners from different EU countries.
The coordinator of the project is the Limerick Institute of Technology. For further information, please contact
