AlmaLaurea in Beirut for the Lebanese week on “Innovation & Entrepreneurship”

The challenges for universities in the framework of Erasmus + Resume project will be discussed in Beirut from 4 to 7 July 2017.
03 July 2017

The second millennium has brought a new definition of employability. The requests for competences are increasingly demanding and transversal. Our lives are being shaped by “Innovation for entrepreneurship or « entrepreneurship for innovation”.

These topics will be discussed from the 4 to the 7 of July during the Lebanese week on Innovation and Entrepreneurship. This event is organised as part of the RESUME project (RESUME Project n.: 561988-EPP-1-2015-1-IT-EPPKA2-CBHE-SP), a European Union Project financed by the Erasmus+ Capacity Building programme, coordinated by Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED).

Social development depends on it, and new jobs tend to focus on “graduates offering competences and not graduates simply looking for work”. Therefore, Higher Education Institutions cannot distance themselves from the new demands of the job market and must ensure the connection between course offers and the new conditions for employability. In order to guarantee proper communication among stakeholders on the value of knowledge in innovation and on socio-economic advancement, it is important to gather university members, socio-economic decision-makers and ministerial bodies at the same table.

The Lebanese week on Innovation and Entrepreneurship will continue on the 7 of July at USEK with a field visit of the training grounds meant exclusively for the RESUME project partners. This visit aims to strengthen the skills of the career centre staff in order to promote the professional insertion of young graduates. In this context, AlmaLaurea, as project partner, will present specific competences and experiences aimed to promote the employability of graduates.
