Fellowship & Grant details

Fellowship posted by Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (31/01/2013 02.07)

Training of local stakeholders aimed at the promotion of fair trade in developing countries, and at technical and social assistance to the craftsmen engaged in collection and transformation processes of local solid waste

Please note that the job is no longer active!

In developing countries, as a matter of survival, children and adults engage in the collection and processing of local solid waste. Since the creation of these products happens in an informal way, the sale of these products also often happens informally. These activities can find some economic recognition only with the support of commercial networks run by supportive local and national stakeholders. The aim of the project is to promote, in synergy with stakeholders, a training-research activity that can enable artisans to enter into the local and regional market by increasing the quality of their products and their ability to develop an economic activity. The project will be developed in two phases

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
