Vocational training is according to Prof.Dr.B.Hallier of utmost importance to bridge theoretical learning and application of know-how in practical life. ERA therefore developed in 2010 a special platform (EUCVOT) for this target group after a joint research project with the Social Dialogue group of EuroCommerce and Uni Europa.

15.04.2016 : SPAR Wholesale

SPAR was founded in 1932 in the Netherlands as a voluntary chain. The letters (SPAR) were taken as an abbreviation from the Dutch sentence "working together for the joint benefit". The Dutch word SPAR is the equivalent for X-mas tree : becoming the logo of the group ! After World War II SPAR started to spread through the neighbouring countries in Western Europe - like in Germany where in 1958 a total of 55 regional SPAR wholesalers were counted - distributing to more than 10.000 stores : starting later to label them also as SPAR-outlets.

In 1959 SPAR International was founded as a roof for coordination. Today SPAR can be found even in Russia, China or Africa ! And quite interestingly investments can be found meanwhile also back to Europe : like SPAR South Africa taking over 60 percent of SPAR Switzerland.
