The final conference of the SENIOR Interreg 4B project

The final conference of the SENIOR Interreg 4B project, supported by the Brittany office of inno TSD, took place in the European Parliament on the 4th of December 2013.  The meeting was hosted by Alain CADEC MEP from the Côtes d’Armor in France and was attended by over 100 people.  Marc Pattinson chaired the  final round table discussion (see photo) during which the Director of DG Enterprise, Joanna Drake, set out her views on how the EU’s enterprise strategy would continue to support entrepreneurs from disadvantaged groups such as seniors.

Earlier in the month the quality of the work of the project partners was recognized as SENIOR Enterprise was rewarded with a prize from the European Commission for being the best project in 2013 for helping entrepreneurs develop new skills.  Over the three year lifecycle of the project partners have supported the creation of over 1000 jobs by seniors.
