From university to labour market in the 21st Century

The eucen‘s proposal UniLab (From university to labour market in the 21st Century: a step forward in work-based placements) has been successful! We will start our work 1st Jan 2020 with University Pompeu Fabra, IMC Fachhochschule Krems, University of Lille (EU partners) and four universities in Russia, two in Belarus and two in Azerbaijan.

The project expects to develop university-business collaboration one step further and to find ways to offer students a brighter future in the labour market thanks to WPL strategies. It will develop the university career centres and create an international network for collaboration and exchange of students.

This CBHE Joint Project has a budget of around 800.000EUR and 36 months of time for its completion. We are looking forward to working in this new project!

There is a short description of UniLab at http://www.eucen.eu/projects/unilab

We will keep you updated with news about this project.

Higher Education Apprenticeships: A definition that helps you

eucen has been developing tools to help HEIs to identify and improve their apprenticeship programmes through its project ApprEnt. During the collection of data, eucen realised that HE apprenticeships mean different things to different people in different European countries. In order to help users to understand the concept better, ApprEnt has settled a definition. You can find the details of this definition in this link and see if your own programmes fulfil a minimum of 4 characteristics out of the six identified by the project. Do you have programmes that can be considered HE apprenticeships? Let us know! We continue collecting materials!
