Alliances for Education and Enterprises

Education and Enterprise Alliances are transnational projects where partners share common goals and work together to foster innovation, new skills, a sense of initiative and entrepreneurial mindsets. They aim to promote innovation in higher education, education and training institutions, businesses and the wider socio-economic environment and address economic and social challenges such as climate change, demographic change, digitisation, artificial intelligence and rapid changes in employment through social innovation and community resilience as well as labour market innovation.

Education and Enterprise Alliances bring together businesses and higher education and training providers to work together in partnership. Operating in one or more different economic sectors, they create lasting relationships and demonstrate their innovative and transnational character in all aspects.

✅ Promote new, innovative and multidisciplinary approaches to teaching and learning: encourage innovation in educational design and delivery, teaching methods, assessment techniques, learning environments and/or the development of new skills;
✅ Encouraging corporate social responsibility (e.g. equity, inclusion, climate change, environmental protection and sustainable development);
✅ Stimulating a sense of initiative and entrepreneurial attitude in learners, educational staff and other workers, in line with the entrepreneurial competences framework;
✅ Improving the quality and relevance of skills developed and certified through education and training systems (including new skills and addressing skills mismatches);
