MAC-Team is the European Multi Actors Cooperation network.
"Multi Actors" means that MAC-Team originates or participates to projects in which all the stakeholders of a problem or a topic are involved at a stage or another stage of the project in order to find appropriate solutions.
"aisbl" stands for international not-for-profit association, which is a legal structure under the Belgian law.
The MAC-Team aisbl 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, many "MAC" projects have been implemented. The legal structure as such was created in 2005.
MAC-Team aisbl has supported many members and partner organisations in European projects, notably in regards to quality assurance, evaluation processes and diessmination activities. For the INSIST context, MAC-Team will especially contribute by:
- implementing a collaborative monitoring dashboard with its supervision;
- bringing in the Open Badges approach and guiding the INSIST partnership in the integration of that approach both at project level and at training offer level to the benefit of the SMEs and Mentors stakeholders.
