ECMT+ aims at developing European entrepreneurial mind-set and practices that foster the highly-important transversal skills and employability of HEI graduates. ECMT+ promotes teachers' expertise by creating a community of practice and strengthens the links between the HEIs and industry. In addition, ECMT+ strengthens HEIs working life relevance developing education that responds to the needs of the local businesses and expands the understanding of the potential of the international co-operation and networks.
The ECMT+ partnership relies on an adequate combination of expertise and competences from different European partners needed to implement the project. This project is continuation for previous succesfully implemented intensive courses (ECMT) organised by some members of the consortium.
Each ECMT+ partner has its own profile supporting the entity. Our team members are embedded with their local communities including the businesses enabling them to bring in practical experiential learning models and connections with real-world entrepreneurs.
ECMT+ methodology relies on sharing, responsibility, proper planning and detailed preparations by all the partners. The methodology of implementation is based on iterative and participatory co-creation of knowledge and expertise where all the partners' expertise is valued and considered. The analyses, pilots, reflections and further development both of the process and outputs are embedded into the process.
ECMT+ project is organised through six work packages:
community of practice
entrepreneurship education research
digital platform and sustainability
dissemination & exploitation.
Together these six work packages leading into nine main outputs form an entity supporting the effective, high quality and in-time implementation of the project. The entity serves the aim to develop relevant, multicultural and future oriented entrepreneurship education that support students' transversal skills, promote employability and job creation in a transnational context.
