“Creating an Innovative and Competitive Egg Industry” (CICEI) reflects the need to train European egg SMEs to innovate and compete effectively, both with foreign imports and domestic challenges such as rising animal feed prices.
The aim of CICEI is clear: to train managers of egg packing, processing and marketing SMEs to develop their business in an innovative manner in line with legislative and commercial imperatives, and thus compete effectively, as it is only through their increased skills, adaptability and innovation that the industry and its staff will fulfil their potential. The project will transfer existing mono language and mono cultural paper based materials which have been used to train Irish Egg SMEs. These materials will be updated and developed as a new elearning course involving an integrated, multilingual elearning website.
