During the second stage tey will develop and adapt a Multimedia Training Course in Excellenece Model for Textile and Toy sector and will validate the GOA-EFQM Technology. IBK will support the complementary training action;
2.- The pilot demonstration of this training action will be carried out by the textile and toy companies of the Consortium. Along with this activity, an analysis of non technical aspects will be carried out;
3.- Simustaneosly with the demosntrations (see Gantt chart), a wide-range diffusion process will get underway vis-a-vis the target companies;
