Project Erasmus+, In-Vent
The EKA University Participates in the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Project InVent
Since November 2017 we participates in Erasmus+ strategic partnerships program′s project “InVent - Partnership to develop VET educators in event management with learner-centred approach”.
The project aims to improve skills and competencies of vocational education teachers who work with event management courses, as well as to improve event management education programs according to the labour market and the industry′s latest trends and requirements. The EKA University participation in the project is very important as it offers different event management-related courses in two professional study programmes: college level programme "Management of entertainment industry" and bachelor programme "Cultural Management".
The lead partner of the project is Gecko Programmes in the UK while the project welcomes joint efforts of 10 partner organisations from Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Slovenia and Latvia.
International project Interreg V-A SI – AT, regioWIN
The Partnership of Slovenia, Styria (A) and Carinthia (A)
The general objective of the RegioWIN project is joint network building, promotion of new cross-sector and cross-border value chains and development of entrepreneurial networks for women. The core of its activities is to increase the efforts for B2B cross-border cooperation and internationalization in the program regions. The accompanying events and workshops are intended for female entrepreneurs from various business fields in order to establish new international market opportunities and new contacts, as well as to discover legal and financial aspects, while enriching their cultural knowledge. The activities are aimed primarily at companies run by women in peripheral areas with great potential. For intensive cross-border cooperation, it is necessary to remove the factors which negatively affect the development of such cooperation and create a favorable environment for female entrepreneurs and their participation.
