Benefits to the European Society

STARTED Project closely aligns with several objectives from Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan

2020 Action Plan Objective

STARTED Objectives

To improve transnational cooperation between research, training providers and other stakeholders
A shared web platform will be developed allowing for the creation of a common work area and for centralising dedicated learning and training tools developed during the project. Interactions fostered between higher education and business will benefit the entire European startup sector by creating value and maintaining or creating employment.
To strengthen entrepreneurship
Theoretical and practical training courses will be proposed both to HEIs and businesses in order to allow cross-fertilisation of ideas and experiences. With the help and advice of professionals, in close contact with experts in different fields (finance, IPR, etc.), researchers will receive support for developing an innovative project from concept definition to the elaboration of proper and convincing business plans.
To increase the international dimension of education and training
Every partner involved in education and training in this project will bring their own competences and experience to create a pan-European structure aiming at fostering innovation.
To disseminate best practices
Notably, STARTED will result in the development of a white book addressing this question in Europe. Moreover, the benefits of this multinational initiative will be spread via universities participating in Startup Europe and notably through the networks of several European R&D groups. This will be helpful for disseminating the results of STARTED within various sectors, as this initiative can lay out the basis of a new approach for teaching and learning innovation.
