The Project

The EDUCCKATE project [ Education Cultural & Creative Knowledge Alliance for Tomorrow’s Entrepreneurs / Reference number: EAC-S03-2012-029 ] is a 18 month initiative co-funded by the European Commission, under the Directorate-General for Education and Culture.

The project aims to develop an innovative training and mentored internship scheme for the support of Higher Education Institutions and businesses, the cultivation of entrepreneurial mindset of students and graduates and the promotion of entrepreneurship. EDUCCKATE provides the students and graduates of Cultural and Creative majors with access to businesses in the sector as well as opportunities to develop business projects & discover new professional routes. Also, it benefits HE institutions through their connection with SMEs in the Cultural and Creative sectors with the aim to develop new customised products or services with commercial value based on academic research and knowledge.
