The main objectives of the project were achieved via the implementation of three intellectual outputs:
- Intellectual Output 2: Development of innovative training solutions on the women entrepreneurship and digital competences required for the trade and logistics development.
This Output consisted of the creation of Women Entrepreneurship Self-Development Tools which are one of the main project intellectual outputs which were used for

training solutions were designed which brought practical entrepreneurship trade skills for women into the training content; - were very practical, with up-to-date training content
and easily transferable from the training room to the day-to-day world of work in trade and logistics; - were based on the new paradigm of doing global business and prevailing
electronic communication; - covered also "soft skills" and "attitudes" as part of the whole management and operational competence.
- Intellectual Output 3: The work on Intellectual Output 3 - Platform for Knowledge Sharing and Good Practices Exchange and a Forum for Ideas Exchange - were divided into several stages: • First stage: Development of a project website • Second stage: Platform development • Third stage: Placement of educational electronic content in the platform.
- Intellectual Output 4: Once the work on the E-learning training platform was completed, it was ready for testing by the students and he participants from the three partner countries. It was decided that the platform would be tested by a minimum of 150 people, 50 from each country. At the same time, a questionnaire was developed and approved by the partners to assess the satisfaction with the testing of the e-learning content introduced in the platform. The Bulgarian partner and coordinator had to test the system on site in a controlled learning environment.
The testing was attended by over 80 students majoring in "Economics of the Trade" from the Academy of Economics "D. A. Tsenov ”, over 60 participants from the United Kingdom and over 30 students from Italy. As a result, between 159 and 180 tests were performed in the system of all 9 modules. Below we presented summary statistics on the online work of the experts and participants.
On the base of the results of Intellectual Output 2, a joint training seminar took place in London, the UK. All participants in the training seminar were selected through a rigorous selection procedure and criteria approved by the three partner organizations. During the training seminar, the participants were introduced to the main features of entrepreneurship, in particular women's entrepreneurship, the entrepreneurial process, the requirements for structuring a business plan, the possibilities for financing a business, etc. In addition to getting acquainted with the theoretical background in the field of entrepreneurship, the participants developed a business plan on a predefined topic.
At the end of the project final virtual conference was organized with the participation of 150 local stakeholders and 50 foreigner participants. During the conference the results of the project were discussed and were outlined plans for future cooperation between the project partners.
