Budget:  245,799.00 EUR

Ref.No.: 2019-1-PT01-KA202-060771




Developing Competences for Stress Resilience @SMEs (DeSTRESS) aims to provide an innovative VET-based solution to this problem. Building on existing research, partners will identify a required set of competences leading to the development of a VET curriculum and a new VET Digital Digital Training Platform using the latest techniques in game-based training and gamification complemented by a set of practical tools and resources to facilitate the transfer of learning into the workplace. This e-environment will expose the main health risks arising from DT and their real impact on the individuals’ life and on the companies’ productivity. Players will assume roles, enabling them to realize if they have already experienced specific situations and how it happened, and which solutions are available for each scenario. Besides raising the awareness of the problem, it will enable owners, managers and decision makers to plan for and to mitigate the occurrence and the negative consequences of work-based stress. For that purpose, a policy report and recommendations will also be produced.
