An innovative structure of university-business cooperation was established and implemented among project partner universities and labour market actors.
The aim of suggested cooperation model was to facilitate close partnerships with employers and put intentional effort to modernise, diversify and expand the curricula and extra curricula offer at each project partner university via
- Local Hub activities in a form of meaningful discussions with employers, feedback and reflections about the current educational offer and the existing skill mismatches as well as interventions during the courses/lectures to allow both, raising awareness about entrepreneurial skills and offer concrete steps to practice.
- Part-time placement scheme (performed in various ways, including in international tandems).
The collaboration structure is part of the holistic approach of the project and the main tool to establish the basis for long-lasting collaboration and therefore bring education closer to the world of work.
The scope of the project is gradually expanding and currently placement scheme is mainly implemented in close cooperation with #empl-oi project (www.empl-oi.eu), therefore not only increasing the number of countries and universities covered, but also opening more possibilities for students.
Should your university be interested to take part in the scheme, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
