The main objective of the NetMIB is to facilitate the efficient cooperation between the public – private – governmental sphere of the economy in order to enable socio-economic growth via the development of entrepreneurial skills, capacity of university students.
This general objective involves the improvement of the quality and relevance of the teaching methodology at the participating High Education Institutions (HEIs) to develop entrepreneurial capacity of university students.
The project while developing entrepreneurial capacity aims at providing answers to current socio-economic problems by generating relevant business ideas on the part of university students. This action learning approach will further strengthen the functioning of the Triple Helix model at the participating HEIs. By internationally interconnecting the participating HEIs’ ideation and business model generation practices in the framework of the NetMIB significant intercultural, cross industrial, and multidisciplinary benefits will arise on the parts of all participants.
The project also intends to establish a transnational entrepreneurship ecosystem that can support the development of entrepreneurial skills of participating persons (students, faculty members, business professionals, public servants,…etc), while creating innovative solutions that are able to solve regional, national or international socio-economic problems.
FIT4RRI moves from the assumption that there is a serious gap between the potential role Responsible Research and innovation (RRI) and Open Science (OS) could play in helping Research Funding and Performing Organisations (RFPOs) to manage the rapid transformation processes affecting science (especially the science-in-society aspects) and the actual impact RRI and OS are currently having on RFPOs, research sectors and national research systems. FIT4RRI is precisely intended to contribute in bridging this gap, promoting viable strategies to activate institutional changes in RFPOs. The project, in particular, will act on two key factors i.e. i) Enhancing competences and skills related to RRI and OS through an improvement of the RRI and OS training offer (in terms of training tools, actions and strategies) presently available; ii) Institutionally embedding RRI/OS practices and approaches by promoting the diffusion of more advanced governance settings able to create an enabling environment for RRI and OS. With this double aim in view, FIT4RRI is organised following an overall methodology based on three main steps: an analytical strand devoted to understand what is happening in the RRI and OS practice, taking into account general trends, barriers and drivers to RRI and OS, interests and values, advanced experiences; a testing strand (observing RRI/OS in action though 4 co-creation experiments) aimed at figuring out possible solutions in terms of training approaches and governance settings; and a proactive strand, promoting changes (i.e. developing training tools and actions and easy-accessible evidence-based guidelines on governance settings functioning as enablers for RRI and OS). The project will last 36 months and includes 7 WPs: Mapping and benchmarking; Sectoral diagnosis, Co-creation experiments, Training tools and actions, Governance Setting, Communication, dissemination and exploitation of results, Management. This project involves 13 partners from 9 EC.
