INTEgrated REporting for SMEs Transparency, the INTEREST project supported by the ERASMUS+ European programme

MAC-Team is the European Multi Actors Cooperation network.
MAC-Team is the result of a long term informal network started at the end of the 80's via collaborations in European projects.

The first "MAC" project effectively using the acronym "MAC" in its name was approved in 1995. Since then, many "MAC" projects have been implemented. The legal structure as such was created in 2005.

  • "Multi Actors" means that MAC-Team generates or participates into projects in which all the stakeholders of a problem are involved at a stage or another stage to find appropriate solutions.
  • "aisbl" stands for international not-for-profit association, which is a legal structure under the Belgian law.

MAC-Team aisbl has been supporting many members and partner organisations in European projects, notably in regards to quality assurance, evaluation processes and dissemination activities. Within the INTEREST context, MAC-Team  especially contributes by:
- implementing a collaborative monitoring dashboard with its supervision;
- bringing in the Open Badges approach and guiding the INTEREST partnership in the integration of that approach both at project level and at training offer level to the benefit of the SMEs, Entrepreneurs and Mentors stakeholders.
