Activities and outcome

SKIVRE focuses on a most interactive training approach, which targets management, staff, monks, and nuns at monasteries in a committed and responsible way. All activities gear towards gaining relevant skills for raising revenues for the preservation of religious heritage sites:

  • Development of a multilingual training scheme for increasing of professionalism of monastic products in production and marketing, including a testing phase and business development
  • Development of a digital learning platform
  • Merchandising handbook for monastic products including guidelines for professional production and marketing in shops or at special retailers
  • Publication on historic crafts of monasteries and their potential for social entrepreneurship for citizens in rural areas

SKIVRE closes a training gap at European monasteries working hard in the preservation of their sites. The training opens new markets and improves access to existing markets. Staff at monasteries will upscale knowledge and train for the employment market. European citizens get better access to high-quality monastic products with a background linked to their own heritage.
