The Local Focus Groups will serve the purpose of gathering existing knowledge and perceptions among local communities, via involving a representative number of local stakeholders and professionals in SE and FT, and VET informing them about the project goals, and requesting their feedback and opinion on the local needs, gaps and possibilities. The Focus Groups will be the first step to involve the main target groups that will be trained and involved in the piloting as FT developers and innovators. The participants of the Focus Groups will later participate in the pilot trainings.
