Description: This work package will focus on establishing a mechanism for involving industry collaboration as an integral part of the developed curriculum. So, input and training from leading industry players in the partner countries will feed into the curriculum. One course will be developed in this WP about technology and Entrepreneurship. In addition to 3 training case studies that will be integrated to the curriculum. The developed case studies are directly related to applied skills, in which students are trained to build their startup projects. These case studies will evolve, and new ones developed as new student startup projects are produced, thus ensuring the incremental enriches of the learning process. This work package will also focus on developing an innovative partnership model to foster cooperation between universities and enterprises, establishing liaison offices in the participating PC institutions, with a role to develop linkages between industry, academic institutions, professionals, and other interested parties and business incubation experts to participate in advisory boards, conduct seminars, review curricula, and carry out joint projects.

The university-enterprise collaboration is an area where capacity building is of deep need from EU partner countries, where this work package will aim to achieve by increasing collaboration and training through a face-2-face workshops
