It will be done through detailed objectives which include: creation and implementation of the innovation and interactive open educational module (MOOC), development of a model for academic innovative teaching and finally creation an open space of integration and exchange of good practice between Universities from EU.

UniTrento Departments/Centres: School of International Studies
Short description: The ATEST project is proposed as a two year project s and should address the problem and find solution, respectively to find a recommendation for approval of credits also for internships. The traineeships is a part of the study - students gain practical experience in their field of study in another way – through practical activities which is very important and essential for their further professional development. The current practice used for recognition of traineeships results shows us huge differences between universities and also within the same university. We can see large differences in the manner of allocated credits for internship performed within the Erasmus programme (from 0 ECTS to 30 ECTS). If we accept the Erasmus programme traineeships as an integral part of study, it must be objectively evaluated in accordance with recognized rules, i.e. ECTS. For traineeships there is no model how to evaluate and recognize participation in Erasmus traineeships under the ECTS. The project partners will analyze own system at 10 universities in 9 EU countries for recognition of traineeships used by each project partner and altogether the project team will prepare common analysis, how could be solved the problem of recognition of traineeships based on ECTS according to the period, results and other aspects of traineeships.

UniTrento Departments/Centres: Department of Economics and Management 
Short description: The importance of entrepreneurs is significant for the economic development of European economies.  Entrepreneurs have the chance to differentiate themselves from established competitors in the market with the help of dialogue communication. The new digital communication services in the field of social media provide the entrepreneurs with excellent possibilities to address their clients regardless of limited resources and cultural boundaries. Entrepreneurs' adaption of modern communication technologies and innovative customer relationship maintaining technologies opens a broad range of research opportunities. Entrepreneurs are often innovators in their domain, but insufficiently trained in establishing and maintaining customer dialogues. Moreover, their levels of customer relationship management differ and they are often not familiar with the use of modern technologies in support of these processes. One practical aim of MARCIEE is to strengthen the innovativeness of European entrepreneurs and to professionalize their intercultural communication and marketing activities in order to establish competitive advantages over non-European entrepreneurs. The international cooperation of doctoral students, post-docs and other interested researchers makes it not only possible for them to have access to data from different European nations, but also to learn how to cope with intercultural challenges. These concern the contents of research activities (e.g. equivalence of scales in intercultural comparisons) and the differing research traditions, processes and theoretical explanations across cultures.

Short description: The SPACE Award has been developed as a response to the concern that young people are becoming increasingly disenfranchised in Europe today and that the turnout at elections is especially low in 18 - 24 year olds across Europe. In many European countries there is a sense that young people are disengaging with the political process which has the potential to destabilise countries. In the current political climate, therefore, there is a clear imperative to tackle this problem to ensure young people see the importance of participation in the political process and are able to use their voice positively and become active citizens. The SPACE Award is a student citizenship package that aims to develop young people's understanding of democratic processes. It offers an accessible framework for student councils and committees from which young people can learn how to create and build an effective student council.

Short description:  In the EU, 6 million young people between 18 and 24 do not have a finished VET or another secondary school. Consequently, these youngsters face deprivation and unemployment, which in turn influences the social and economical development of a country. Especially migrants and Roma face these difficulties. Furthermore, these groups face discrimination at the transition from general school to VET, as well. The ET 2020 strategy now aims at reducing the dropout rate to below 10% by 2020. The EU project PREDIS - Prevention of dropout of VET through inclusive strategies for migrants and Roma helps in reaching this goal.

Short description:  At the global level it is already known our dependence on a healthy environment and the fact that environmental problems go over national and regional borders. To achieve this aim we need adequate training and access to higher and actual skills through better education and training systems. Mutual learning in field of environmental engineering between important and experimented actors in European higher education system using the exchange of good practice and implementing innovative tools and instruments is the rationale of the EnvYJobs project. EnvYJobs project will contribute to the fulfilment of long-term EU objective concerning the environment as to achieve levels of water, air and soil quality "that do not result in unacceptable impacts on, and risks to, human health and the environment".
