Flexible Learning in Information Technology and Entrepreneurship

FLITE project will address the following 2 factors:

1. Higher education graduates need more than just their degree to access employment. Their future employers across all sectors ask for and need greater capacity for entrepreneurial thinking and also experience in cooperation both at a distance and across cultural boundaries.

2. The potential for knowledge transfer between higher education institutions and industry needs to be improved..

The consortium will jointly develop an entrepreneurial training that is designed to fit and bring together higher education students and professionals within the IT sector. In this process they will use the Osterwalder business model framework developed for both personal and business development. It will raise their entrepreneurial awareness and promote bilateral knowledge transfer through collaboration between the two groups of learners. The proposed training will be offered online, by applying the CCD process method, adapted for distributed teams, to optimally involve all the different stakeholders in an entrepreneurial virtual course.
