Between 23rd and 25th of January 2018 the cCLEP! Project partners met at the European Centre for Leadership and Entrepreneurship Education (ECLEE), in Lille for the kickoff meeting of the Project.

The first day of the meeting was an opportunity for all Organizations representatives to brainstorm on the project tangible and intangible outputs, set the agenda and short & long term objectives.

General Topic:

The live entertainment industry suffers from the lack of a systematic approach to the recognition of professionals and their training. The recognition of the figures is fragmented, and often the training courses are based on obsolete models.

In this context and in addition to the partnership of Assomusica and MESO Events following the development of the ELMA initiative (European Live Music Association), a new consortium including the European Centre for Leadership and Entrepreneurship Education (FR), the Emilia Romagna Region (IT), Epralima (PT) and Plasa (UK) has been granted an ERASMUS+ project of Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices: the CCLEP project (Certified Competences For Live Events Professionals).

To promote the official recognition and validation of qualifications, skills and competences of innovative professions of the live music events industry by developing a replicable advocacy methodology to support recognition processes at the regional/national or EU levels.
