The General Objective of the proposal is to decrease the unemployment of European higher education graduates by increasing the level of successful Biotechnology graduates following an entrepreneurial pathway.
Specific objectives have been set up:
- Developing innovation in Biotech higher education towards entrepreneurship by delivering five innovative intellectual outputs to be used by Biotech and Economics HE teachers and students in the educational process.
- Development of entrepreneurial culture and skills of at least 220 Biotech and Economics HE students involved directly in the project activities by delivering two educational materials and one training program.
- Enlarge the inter-academic and academia-business cooperation in the field of Biotechnology by the involvement of at least four academic Biotech providers, one Economic university and at least 12 Biotech stakeholders.
In the consortium there are involved four different departments teaching Biotechnology in different fields, respectively: UASVMB-RO is specialized in Agriculture and Industrial Biotech, UNIPG-IT has special background in Veterinary Biotech, UPV-SP in Plant Biotech and KU Leuven-BE in Medicine Biotech. The needs described above are common to all the Biotech academia partners and their complementary expertise in different area of Biotech will rise ideas and viable solutions hard to be found in each national level.
The target groups include two main categories: higher education teachers andMaster/PhD students mainly from the field of Biotechnology, as well as from the field of Economics.
