Varadzin County has completed the EU-funded project "SMEs Go Online" aimed at raising computer literacy among small and medium entrepreneurs in this northwestern region. The project covered 328 entrepreneurs who could choose between two training models - basic computer science and e-business, project leader Martina Klopotan-Tuk said at a closing press conference on Wednesday.
Klopotan-Tuk said that although the EU-funded part of the project was over, the training would continue, but those interested would have to pay for their course. She added that prices would be much more favourable than those for courses offered by similar training centres and agencies.
The project was conducted by the Varazdin County Development Agency in cooperation with Slovene partners. It was worth EUR 120,000, of which 26 per cent was provided by Varadzin County, while the rest came from the EU's PHARE 2006 programme. (Hina)
