Open Market Consultation in Slovenia

The Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia invites you to participate in the activities of the Open Market Consultation, which is being carried out within the framework of the P5 Innobroker project.  

The purpose of these activities is to gain insight into the following issues:

  • What are the current solutions available on the market (availability of innovations, technology);
  • What are the current developments and levels of development of companies;
  • Whether these activities can address the barriers faced by clients;
  • Whether companies in the market are willing to partner if they cannot offer the full range of solutions needed to evaluate the management of higher education colleges: monitoring students and their progress in practical training in companies.

The public buyer, the Association of Slovene Higher Vocational Colleges (Association HVC), with the technical assistance of the Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia and the P5 Innobroker project, is interested in the experience of companies with the different tools that make up an innovative and sustainable solution for monitoring students and their progress in practical training in companies, as this would make it easier for them to connect with each other in the event of their participation in the call for tenders that will be published in the future.    

The Association HVC is an institution that offers tailor-made study programmes for students that include a significant proportion of practical training, as the quality of such training and regular transparent communication between the student, the company and the VET school during practical training is crucial for its success. This would reduce the amount of administrative work for enterprises, allow for a faster flow of information and greater and better involvement of enterprises in the training system.

Both buyers and SMEs need support and assistance to implement and participate in Innovation Procurement bids. The P5 INNOBROKER project as an innovation procurement intermediary aims to bridge this gap and facilitate interaction and networking in the innovation ecosystem by providing specialised services and contacts. The P5 INNOBROKER project is funded by the EU COSME programme.
