Caribbean Training & Research Group (CARI-TaRG)





CARI-TaRG is made up of a small number of high calibre Universities and not-for-profit research institutions in the United States, the Caribbean and Europe who together are able to provide access to the best training and research expertise in all aspects of entrepreneurship and workplace relationships to support economic development policies in the Caribbean.

Activities include e-learning programmes, short one-day courses in the Caribbean, longer more intense training in Europe, the United States and the Caribbean, an entrepreneurship mentoring programme and relevant research activities.

If the required expertise is not available from within our specialised team we will co-opt appropriate other support institutions to provide such training.

CARI-TaRG has three Training Centres located in the United States (based at The Department of Urban and Public Affairs, The University of Louisville campus), The Caribbean (based at the University of the Virgin Islands (US)) and Europe (based at the Department of Economics and Statistics, Udine University, Italy).


CARI-TaRG has held a number of successful, well attended workshops in 2017 and 2018 on Barbados. A number of the places were sponsored by the UK Department of International Trade and the European Union. Accredited Workshops included:

Mediation Skills
Conflict Resolution
Trust Leadership
Workplace Relationship Skills
Restorative Justice

In 2019 CARI-TaRG developed, and delivered, a bespoke accredited training programme in Conflict Resolution for over 30 Barbados Seventh Day Adventist Pastors.
