Third Partnership Meeting in Palermo (Italy)

Third Partnership Meeting in Palermo (Italy)
Wednesday, 25 April 2018

On April 12, 2018 the third partnership meeting of the GLOBAL-SPIN Project (Transnational Entrepreneurship and Corporate Learning: Promoting Effective Internationalization Strategies in Academic Spin-Offs) took place in Palermo (Italy). All the partners participated in this meeting, with the participants of the Fundación General Universidad de Granada Empresa (Spain) and the University of Patras (Greece) joining virtually.

GLOBAL-SPIN aims to develop an innovative and inclusive training tool for managers of academic Spin-Offs, on transnational entrepreneurship, based on a new approach to corporate learning through the use of web and tablets, capable of providing knowledge, the skills and resources necessary for these professionals to implement effective internationalization strategies in their entrepreneurial processes.

The meeting was very productive in order to advance in three key aspects of the Project: the finalization and approval of the training material on internationalization strategies for spin-offs and start-ups; its adaptation and implementation in the digital platform and, finally, the launching of the GLOBAL-SPIN Manifesto with concrete actions for sustainability and mainstreaming of the main results of the project among key actors of the business and educational field in Europe.

The Greek partners of the University of Patras and the CCS Consultant worked in coordination and presented to the rest of the consortium a part of the digitized training material for discussion and proposal of improvements. The Portuguese partner, Advancis, presented new strategies to increase the active participation of the target groups in the GLOBAL-SPIN Forum as well as the latest developments of the Manifesto for its implementation through the Project Website.
