“European Manager of Intelligent and Responsible Territories” GETIR

The general aim of the GETIR project is to contribute and to give an answer to the present growing demand in European labour market concerning the local development sector, where same training techniques and skills have been used for the last 15 years. DOCUMENTA together with its project partners FU Uppsala, Bulgarian Development Agency, Romanian Institute for Adult Education (IREA) and the Dimitra Institute of Training and Development saw the need to redefine the present profile of thousands of present and future Local Development Agents (LDAs or similar) and therefore put their efforts in creating at EU level a new professional profile and a training curriculum called “European Manager of Intelligent and Responsible Territories” (GETIR). This new professional profile and the training curriculum that include new competences in local/ regional territorial management are based on the combination of two models- Models of Socially Responsible Territory (TSR) and Intelligent Territory (IT). They are the foundation of the newly emerged Intelligent and Responsible Territories (TIR) concept developed by DOCUMENTAand its partners.

The main objective of GETIR project is to create and develop a new professional profile and a training curriculum based on the TIR model, then to create an online training tool for the GETIRs in different languages (EN, ES, SV, RO, and BUL) and finally to make the foundation of a social community for the GETIRs which will help evaluate and improve if necessary the project implementation.
