MENTORCERT (2017-2019) : International certification of business mentors

The ERASMUS + Strategic partnership MENTORCERT project is proposed to follow an existing Erasmus+ project TRUST ME and a former Erasmus+ project CERTI4TRAIN. The consortium, coordinated by the Budapest Business School will develop the mentioned projects, refining, developing and integrating the results of the TRUST ME and CERTI4TRAIN projects to provide SMEs with a mechanism to access internationally certified, standardised mentoring services on offer.

In addition, the project aligns the business mentoring activity with sectors of strategic importance to the local economy. By developing progression pathways (a certification scheme) for business mentors and moving towards international certification of business mentoring, the MENTORCERT project will help to overcome a lack of information on standards that are one of the most significant barriers to SME engagement across the EU.

EFCoCert will lead activities concerning the development of the international certification. EFCoCert is also actively involved in the exploitation strategy of the project results.
