We are happy to share with you a project proposal from a key stakeholder of our member region Umbria (IT) who is looking for a partner to lead the project and to work with them!
This idea was presented to the AER Secretariat by Agenzia Umbria Ricerche – AUR as the Research Agency of Umbria Region for social, economical and territorial affairs. AUR has a solid background in the drafting and implementation of EU projects co-funded both by Structural Funds and EU programmes in the areas of youth entrepreneurship, mobility schemes industry, tourism and cultural heritage, research and innovation, etc.
The project is developed within Horizon 2020 – Europe in a changing world – Inclusive, innovative and reflective Societies, Topic “Education and skills: empowering Europe’s young innovators” (CO-CREATION-01-2017).
This call aims to improve learning and teaching in innovation-related skills for young boys and girls at the age of primary and secondary education through the design and piloting of new innovative ways of skills education, including technologies, processes and relations. Building upon existing initiatives in Europe, the consortia (which shall include entrepreneurial partners, and may include partners from civil society and the social economy) shall develop new approaches and innovative models for skills education targeted at young people.
Taking advantage of previous experiences such as Enterprise Business Game and Leonardo Toi-Start App project, AUR developed a possible model to support the dissemination of culture business, teaching and transmission of entrepreneurial skills, even from a gender perspective, which is based on the enhancement of expert experience and proven expertise over the years both in Italy and in the context of stable and active European networks. These experiences can actually be integrated into a support model to the development of entrepreneurial skills transferable at European level, being efficient (in terms of cost-benefit ratio) and effective (in terms of expected results report, results obtained and impact on a large scale), as well as versatile and with high adaptability to different contexts.
AUR has the background experience on the topic of this call as well as the project idea to fit into it, what now they are looking for is actually a lead partner that could drive – together with them – the development and drafting of the project proposal.
If you like the idea of being involved in this interesting activity, together with AUR and with the support of AER please get in touch with AER Secretariat! We would be very happy to share this with you, get your valuable inputs and start working together on it being the framework and content already at a good stage but open to you contributions!
Being the deadline of this call on 2nd February 2017, please inform us about your expression of interest before 23rd December!
