The Erasmus+ SCIENT project held its third coordination meeting at the University of Beira Interior in Covilhã, Portugal, on 15 and 16 December 2015. The project aims to launch an innovative entrepreneurship programme for PhD STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) students and graduates that will focus on the development of their transversal skills and provide them with a new professional path. The meeting was attended by members of the SCIENT consortium, comprising 15 partners from 8 countries.
All meeting participants were given the opportunity to discuss the progress made in the second half of 2015, identify problems, explore ideas and create the project’s roadmap for the coming months. More specifically:
SCIENT is a European University - Business Alliance aiming to foster young SCIentists’ ENTrepreneurial spirit. The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, started 1 January 2015 and will run for 3 years. The project consortium includes academic, business and communication partners in order to bridge the gap between scientific research and entrepreneurship.
