Abstract (English)

ELISAA is based on a multilateral partnership between Institutions, Albanian and European Universities (AEUs), Umbrella organizations for creating wider links between Albanian SMEs and the academic institutions. The aim is to build up a higher and vocational training in the agricultural sector through an e-learning course. In this way, new strategies for developing the agro-industry and to overcome the decline of the sector will be introduced. ELISAA will focus on no-food uses of biomass (agricultural crops and residual biomass) in particular for the hypothesis of bio-fuels generations. The e-learning higher and vocational training course will be realized through an e-platform capable of managing lessons, texts and vocational grids, of tracking courses progress or editing contents, making reports etc.
