The idea of the project was traced few years back after the closure of ‘V-educa’ (Vocational education) project, which was financed by the Hungary-Croatia IPA Cross-border Co-operation Programme 2007-2013.

The overall objective of the project was to increase the capacity of Koprivnica and Pecs communities to develop and conduct electromobility measures in order to ease their implementation.

In the past decades in the European Union those social enterprises got into the focus of attention that combine business and social aspects in their operation, contribute to social cohesion, integration and solidarity as well as local employment.
