SINTRA – Achieving Sustainability through INTRApreneurship is a 24 months Erasmus+ project (KA2: Strategic Partnerships for adult education) designed to provide an integrated support, tailored to the needs of organisations for the development of intrapreneurship-related skills, competences and attitudes among both employees and employers for improving the organisations’ sustainability.

Sustainability in business generally refers to the effect the organization’s policies and practices have on the environment and the society. It is also well connected with the viability and competitiveness of the organization itself.

Intrapreneurship is the practice of adopting entrepreneurial behaviours within an established organization by its employees towards the achievement of innovative products or services.

SINTRA project develops tailor-made and innovative training resources and tools, targeted at sustainability-focused intrapreneurship support of organisations in the Business, Civil or Government sector across Europe.
