SMART First Intensive Training on Entrepreneurship

SMART First Intensive Training on Entrepreneurship

During the past few months, SMART partners have been working intensively in the development of the syllabus for the project’s first training programme. This work is part of the project Work Package 2 (WP2.1) and has resulted in a unique set of training modules on Entrepreneurship. The training pursued the following specific objectives:

  • To introduce participants into the University of Bologna (UNIBO)’s entrepreneurial ecosystem
  • To share best practices and case studies
  • To get familiar with entrepreneurial training and scouting activities offered by UNIBO
  • To explore the different agreements and collaborative structures within UNIBO’s network

Upon these key premises, the three-day training developed a structure based on three modules where each of them corresponded to a specific learning outcome:

  • Third Mission and strategies for entrepreneurship
  • Entrepreneurial training and scouting programmes
  • Ecosystem, network, and collaborations

Led by the University of Bologna and co-chaired by Agora Institute and the University of Turku, the intensive training was organised with great success on October 6, 7, and 8. It attracted more than 50 participants from Indonesia and Europe.

Together with Nine National and European Universities, ITS Develops a University-Business Cooperation Project

It has become the main agenda of policy makers around the world to increase the relevance of university activities regarding the socio-economic environment in order to increase job opportunities for graduates. For this reason, the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS) is part of SMART, a project funded by the European Union under the Erasmus + Programme. The SMART Project is an university-business engagement project supporting employability and transition into the graduate labor market in Indonesia. The project, which started with the SMART Kick Off Project event, was inaugurated on June 24, 2020, by ITS vice rector IV, Bambang Pramujati MSc Eng PhD.

The project initiated by Prof. Dr. rer nat Irmina Kris Murwani MSi, an ITS lecturer, is a project that focuses on strengthening Capacity Building at High Education Institution (HEI). In this project, the program undertaken is Entrepreneurship. “This program means a great opportunity for Indonesia”, explained Irmina. According to Irmina, the SMART Project is motivated by the impact of solid business-university relations in the current “European Strategy 2020.” University-business cooperation has increased in the last few decades across Europe. However, there is a critical need for good models and practices for the creation of strategies and instruments in this domain in Indonesia. (more…)
