The Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce is the leader of the international consortium winner of the 390,000 euro European project "M-learning to unleash business potential households, M-HOUSE", 75% of which financed by the European Commission, in the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme (www.m-house.eu).

In M-HOUSE project, an international consortium of 8 partners from 6 European countries (Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Romania, Poland and Italy) works to increase households’ awareness of their business potential and to valorize their entrepreneurial soft skills.

M-HOUSE was born from the idea that households (traditional and not) are based on simple business rules, which, if properly understood and valued can lead to greater creativity and employment opportunities. The project aims at providing households with alternative career/employment pathways, to reach personal fulfillment, to allow especially women (housewives or workers) to achieve their personal fulfillment reconciling work commitment with the family one, providing participants with the practical means to increase their employment opportunities.

M-HOUSE exploits home economics research findings in an innovative way, developing a prototype non formal e-/m-learning course aimed at improving households soft business skills. The project will identify 10 Key Learning Situations, according to which 8 learning modules will be developed to allow participants to deal with different situations in which they are supposed to turn daily households scenarios with entrepreneurial learning potential into learning exercises (i.e. over-stressed situations turned into exercises of self-motivation).

The modules are accessible on PC or mobile devices used for an interactive learning. Smart-phones/tablets’ applications represent an added value in learning, which enable an easier and faster sharing of information at any time.

The project will be launched during the opening conference "Management skills from your house to your professional life: Boosting households' entrepreneurial potential", on 6thFebruary 2014 at the Representation of the State of Hessen to the European Union in rue Montoyer, 21 – Brussels.
