Central Balticum Entrepreneurship Interaction (CB ENTREINT)
The CB ENTREINT project aims at promoting entrepreneurial attitudes and behaviours in the Central Baltic (CB) area. The role of entrepreneurship education is underestimated in the Central Baltic region, and more intensive cooperation is needed between educators and entrepreneurs in the Central Baltics who are the main target group within the project. The project will develop and improve sustainable cross-border networks and training programmes, and the modules developed during the project will be used as a part of the training curricula in the higher education institutions participating in the project.
- Analysis of the training needs of teachers of entrepreneurship in the CB area who are working with different levels of education;
- Analysis of company/university cooperation and modern business platforms;
- Development of a cross-border network among the CB company/university platforms, higher education institutions and development organisations;
- Development and piloting of a CB professional diploma programme in entrepreneurship pedagogy.
