The BISITE Research Group collaborates in the newly launched LAPASSION Project

This week I travelled to Oporto to attend the official launching of a European Project for the building of capacities LAPASSION (Latin-America Practices and Soft Skills for an Innovation Oriented Network). Our research group, BISITE, will collaborate in the project. The project will facilitate the exchange of students and researchers from twenty European and American universities, as well as the development of collaborative multidisciplinary projects and the launching of challenges and creation of entrepreneurial projects. This project comes about as a result of the large-scale unemployment of youth that can be found in the countries participating in the Project (Portugal, Finland, Spain, Brazil, Uruguay and Chile). We can work towards greater employability by organizing internships and teaching innovation and internationalization skills.

The partners that are involved in this project have been selected for their vast experience in cooperation activities with Latin American countries and participation in co-creation and co-development activities. They are listed in the table below:
