The University Bielsko-Biala together with VŠB – Technical University in Ostrava, as coordinator, and the Icelandic institution – the University of Iceland – received funding for the project: „Find your inner inventor” under the Erasmus + Program, action 2. Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices - strategic partnerships. The project will last 30 months, during which the analysis of educational needs of secondary school students in the field of entrepreneurship will be carried out.
In the next stage, based on the results of the surveys, a training program based on the simulation of the real business environment will be prepared.
The assumptions of the project meet the expectations of people educating themselves at the secondary school level: the training program developed as part of the project is to help to develop entrepreneurial skills in practice, indicate future career opportunities in business or self-employment, and show a comprehensive business cycle from the idea through the development of the idea / product to be placed on the market. The project is also to encourage continuation of education after high school and enable students to contact the scientific community, which will contribute to strengthening cooperation between the academic community and Bielsko-Biała schools and entrepreneurial entities of the region.
Several University’s of Bielsko-Biala units supporting entrepreneurship and cooperation with educational units at both regional and international level (Careers Office, International Exchange Center and Department of Science and International Cooperation) are involved in the implementation of the project.
