for those who wanted to meet and interact with students across european cities;
those who wanted to learn new skills and knowledge on social innovation and entrepreneurship;
and those who wanted to further develop their skills in working remotely on international projects with international teams
The training programme was tailored to students wanting to help solve some of society’s problems, and be involved in something that really mattered and could make a difference.
The recipients were the most suitable students selected after a preparation programme delivered at a local level by each partner.
The objective of the Summer School in Dublin was to foster ten collaborative projects among students from six different countries.
Ten projects were developed remotely over the following months and were monitored and mentored by the partner institutions. The students were required to record their progress through video diaries and prepare a report at the end of one year.
Then came Winter School in Montpellier where each team gathered and was given the opportunity to showcase their progress and initial activities.
Finally, onto the Pitching Bootcamp in Prato – one year since Dublin, the project teams attended a project showcase where they were expected to present their projects to representatives of community groups, policy makers, and potential investors.
The students continued to develop their projects remotely during the final year of the project, reporting regularly on progress and challenges faced.
Participating students received a formal certificate of completion bearing the logos of all partner institutions.
