The EnterMode project has just ended successfully
The Enter.Mode addressed the challenges in the organization of national and European internships and provided a robust framework for developing specific skills during internships. The Enter.Mode partnership was designed to bridge this gap and stimulate the exchange of good practice and the creation of common ground among HEI and business actors throughout Europe. Enter.Mode project benefited from different expertise and experience of partner institutions. The mission of the project, therefore, was to stimulate European entrepreneurship, rather than entrepreneurship within national borders. Enter.Mode brought together partner expertise from 8 EU countries with complementary competencies in order to learn from each other and jointly develop the project outputs, which are mostly freely available from everywhere in Europe.
The internships were carried out also in five EU countries (Italy, Greece, Germany, Hungary, and Slovakia) both transnationally and nationally. The Enter.Mode project has high added value by encouraging academics, practitioners, and students to cooperate across national boundaries and to share complementary skills and knowledge, to promotes competition in education, leading to higher quality and excellence, and to make possible to go beyond what is possible at the national level. Another effect of Enter.Mode project has been the overcoming of barriers between countries, by means of multinational consortium. The dialogue between academia and business has been strongly supported. The different strengths and the different traditions gave an opportunity to harvest real gains from pooled experience in education and training. This potential was best unlocked through internships and mobility which can only be effectively handled at the EU level. The Enter.Mode project contributed to an EU-wide network capable of turning the strong demand for student mobility into reality. The added value of the EU level comes from the transnational character of the activities in the field of education and training that are additional to national or regional support structures. The Enter.Mode project offered the individuals the opportunity to experience other countries and cultures. The project results not only improve the student’s employability but also promote a more European-minded, flexible, and mobile workforce that improves Europe’s competitiveness and innovation potential. The Enter.Mode project enhanced the mobility capacity of future workers across fragmented labour markets. In addition, the Enter.Mode project as a European action ensures optimal dissemination of results.
