Well-being and prevention of stress from working in a digital environment. Innovative training content and tools about prevention and management of digital stress for SMEs.


The STRESS-LESS project provides recent statistics on how the new digital stress is being dealt with, as well as it delivers solutions for small (also micro) and medium-sized companies (SME).

New training content on preventing and dealing with digital stress is developed as part of the project. The training content is applicable in work-based settings or in “home-office” settings for SMEs, their staff, managers and trainers/mentors. The programmes are available via web portal and mobile app. The innovative digital training tools help users to learn how to prevent and manage digital stress and to develop the habits and discipline required for this (how to cope with digital stress). They help SME staff and other learners to be healthier, less stressed and to suffer less from depression and burn-out.

Project flow

The partnership consortium consists of five organizations that have previous experience and knowledge in the areas of stress research, health, well-being and education. The online modules developed are evaluated by SMEs in each partner country through online surveys, personal training courses, workshops and expert interviews (based on grounded theory) and all project results are published in a scientific (STRESS-LESS) report.


In this section you can find STRESS-LESS intellectual products and publications on the topic of digitally related stress and relevant interventions to prevent it or mitigate its consequences.


STRESS-LESS training platform is the vehicle for implementing the digital learning programmes in the project. It allows for a learning process, suitable to the needs of the individuals: at their own pace; in their own choice of time and place; on web or app.

The platform and the mobile app will assist the process of habits development in order to ensure the sustainability of the training results. Through the platform SMEs, their employees, managers and owners, VET teachers, trainers, mentors and coaches, HR managers are provided access to tailor-made digital training content, helping them prevent, manage and reduce digital stress.
