On May 16-20, Gohar Dokholyan, International Relations and Grants Promotion Officer and Erasmus+ CONNECT Local Project Coordinator, had a business trip to Moldova to participate in the coordination meeting of the CONNECT Project and a conference organized within the frames of Jean Monnet EUShare project. She held a report on the topic “Boosting Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurial skills of Academic Community at the Universities of Armenia”. The presented material will be published in the collection of articles within the EUShare project.
The main goal of the Erasmus+ CONNECT project is to enhance the entrepreneurial skills of university students to make graduates competitive in the labour market, to foster the generation of innovative ideas and to establish startups (http://connecterasmus.com/).
The project participants visited Moldova State University, Technical State University of Moldova, Academy of Music, Theater and Fine Arts, and Alecu Russo Balti State University. They got acquainted with newly established centers (Mediacor, Artcor, Tekwill, Ziphouse) which created a favorable working environment for young people with enthusiasm and innovative ideas.
To achieve the goals of the project, special co-creative hubs (Smart Caffes) have to be established at the universities of the three Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Georgia and Moldova where students can generate, develop and market their own innovative ideas.
