Since December 2018, six entities coming from Portugal, Spain, Cyprus, Poland, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic are working on the Erasmus+ project wINGS – “Internationalization serious Game for Start-ups and entrepreneurs”. Under the coordination of the University of Cyprus, the partnership will strive to identify core and innovative learning methods that best encourage success in international activities for start-ups and entrepreneurs. After the two years of duration of the project, the consortium of wINGS expects to contribute to solve the special needs of start-ups and entrepreneurs by designing and making available an innovative serious business and internationalization game that will be supported by a training course for start-ups.
Currently, the partnership of the project is carrying out a survey aimed at evaluating and analysing the trainers and educators’ competences on the level of Virtual Gaming and ICT-usage, as well as their opinion regarding the advantages and disadvantages of the use of these resources in learning and teaching processes. In parallel, each partner is conducting a set of focus groups in order to understand, amongst other issues, the state of entrepreneurial education in each country and the internationalisation preferences of start-ups and entrepreneurs. These exploratory activities will be key to successfully develop the final version of the outputs, as well as to ensure their sustainability. If you are working on the educational field and wish to participate in the survey, you can do it through the following link:
The first transnational meeting represented another important activity within the scope of the project. It took place in Nicosia (Cyprus) on December 18 and 19 (2018) and was hosted by the University of Cyprus. The meeting was fruitful, and all partners participated through brainstorming and many group discussions, which marked a great start of the project.
The next months of the year will be full of activities and tasks. Apart from participating in the survey, the partnership of wINGS encourages you to follow the project official Facebook to get informed about all the news and updates of the project.
