EnterMode online full partners meeting in April 2020

The fourth project meeting of EnterMode was planned in Ioannina, Greece in April, 2020 hosted by the University of Ioannina (GR).  The planning meeting should have followed the Transnational workshop for teachers in HEIs and companies that are interested to apply the internship model.

Due to Covid19 restrictions, the Transnational workshop had to be rescheduled. The Planning meeting was held online. Altogether 18 persons from the 14 partner institutions have taken part in it. During the meeting the project progress has been discussed and the measures for further work have been agreed with regards to Covid19. The further work on the finalisation and testing of the integrated model of entrepreneurship skills acquisition was approved. Since one of the important aspect of the project consists in the development of HEIs–companies partnerships, with a view to the promotion of entrepreneurial education of higher education students during their internships, the partnership had to change the originally planned date for internships (national and international).

The further improvement and widening of the EnterMode Community of Practice will continue, to allow for developing common practice, sharing good practice and socialising newcomers into existing business communities. The dissemination and exploitation of project results as well as quality assurance were also discussed in details during the meeting.

Project partners hope to be able to meet again in July 2020 in Ioannina, Greece. The University of Ioannina will organise 4 days workshop for the capacity building of higher education teaching staff and companies’ trainers, to organise entrepreneurial learning and support the acquisition of related skills and competences. The dates of this workshops will be confirmed according to the evolution of the Covid-19 crisis. Although it is difficult to know when the emergency will be over, the EnterMode project work is progressing.
