S.I.L.V.HER training path includes the digital tool, not only as a means of learning, but also and above all as a future means of developing a strategic sector that will support a process of European identity recognition .
The blended, or mixed, course will be divided into two types of activities: online training and transnational mobility as face-to-face training sessions.
