The three projects are:

IE-WEXHE – Integrating Entrepreneurship and Work Experience into Higher Education

IE-WEXHE is a partnership of universities, international business and European organizations. The goal of the project is to facilitate the connection between higher education and labour field based on work-related learning through internships, traineeships and entrepreneurship. It focuses on small and medium enterprises, which are by far the largest employer in Europe. The objective is to develop 12 reproducible, per nation customizable modules. These modules cover four academic areas. Given the current labour market situation a special focus will be put on human sciences.
Coordinator of the project is the Groningen University. It will run for three years.

RIESAL – Red para el fomento de la Internacionalización de la Educación Superior en América Latina

The objective of the project is to enable the institutionalization of a regional network for the Internationalization of Higher Education in Latin America. The aim is to integrate other key players into the Latin American university system.
The project will be led by Guadalajara University in Mexico and will run for two years.

In order to do so, Tomorrow´s Land will deliver a high quality MOOC to support the development of key knowledge and competences required for the future social innovators to succeed. The project will be led by South Sefton Development Trust, UK, and will run for two years.
