About Us

Europe ranks last in employee engagement (having clear expectations, feeling connected to and supported by your team, and finding purpose in your work), scoring a mere 14% compared to the 33% of US and Canada (Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace Report, 2022). After COVID-19, resignation levels are also significant in Europe with Austria having the highest value of vacant positions (5%), followed by Belgium and the Netherlands (both 4.9%) (Eurostat, 2022).

Research findings indicate that Coworking and collaborative workspaces (CWS) have the potential to support employees as well as freelancers, new creators who are just starting their professional life or micro-enterprises and start-ups, by providing both a stable, functional work atmosphere and membership in a social community.
However, despite the growing popularity of Coworking and CWS, there are still gaps and needs in terms of (continuing) vocational training for young professionals who may lack the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in these new work environments.

The Re-Work project

The Erasmus+ RE-WORK project (project number: KA220-VET-000155692) aims at developing a flexible and user-centred VET programme for young professionals on Coworking and Collaborative Workspaces (CWS) to overcome the consequences of the great resignation and quiet quitting and respond to work-life balance needs and workplace requirements.
The focus of the RE-WORK project is on creating flexible, tailor-made vocational training resources and tools that are adaptable to labour market needs. The project contributes to increasing the work-based skills and key competences of young professionals, freelancers, and entrepreneurs in the field of collaborative business models and the Coworking and Collaborative Workspaces methods.


Re-Work aims to:

  • Introduce bottom-up, needs-based Coworking and CWS methods and models;
  • Build the knowledge and capacity of VET providers and trainers;
  • Raise awareness among young professionals.

The project is funded with support from the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Programme and has a duration of 32 months (01/12/2023-31/07/2026).
