We would like to inform about a call for a RIS Task partner in the project ESEE Education Initiative.
From its very start educational activities have been a major concern of the EIT. The EIT has always underlined the role of high and entrepreneurial skills as drivers of innovation. A basic assumption underpinning the educational activities of the EIT is that human capital development is at the heart of approaches to fostering growth and creating jobs. Therefore, addressing these overarching goals using education as a toll an ESEE Education strategy has been created that focuses on education and capacity building in the ESEE region.
The program integrates education, business, wider society and any other potential innovation stakeholder through developing and deploying innovative pilot programs lead by local universities in the RIS region. The program shall involve local industry and SMEs and transfer best practices to the region from other KICs or regions of Europe. The overall goal is to establish a system of programs maintaining and supporting EIT RM RIS Action Line II activities by closing the gaps in terms of educational excellence in EIT RIS-eligible countries and regions, taking the proposing and coordinating initiative – and initiate knowledge transfer from KIC members from non-EIT RIS-eligible countries towards those and increasing visibility of and awareness about the EIT.
Non-KIC member organisations in RIS countries can be involved as Third Parties (so called “RIS Task partners”) in RIS projects. RIS Task partners in ESEE Education Initiative may be any legal entity from Bosnia and Herzegovina with teaching activity in a field at least one below:
