REady for BUSiness - Integrating and validating practical entrepreneurship skills in engineering and ICT studies


Partners from the EU, the Western Balkans and the Russian Federation cooperate to develop entrepreneurship trainings and a corresponding validation system for students of engineering and ICT studies.

Nowadays entrepreneurship skills for university graduates are gaining importance, which is demonstrated, among other things, by the European Commission’s recommendation of entrepreneurship competences as increasing employability. These competences play a paramount role in EU neighbouring countries aiming towards high-performing market economies and convergence with the EU.

REBUS aims at developing, testing, validating and mainstreaming holistic and needs-driven learning modules to promote entrepreneurship competences of ICT and engineering graduates at the interface of academic education and learning in an applied business context.

Partners from the European Union (Austria, Germany, Italy), the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia & Herzegowina, Kosovo and Montenegro) and the Russian Federations cooperate in REBUS in order to develop practice-oriented entrepreneurship training. Furthermore, the consortium will design a validation and reference system based on the Level 5 approach, allowing for the transnational exploitation of acquired competences.
