RESCUU Work Package 2

Within this work package, two boot camps will be organized. The aim is that students and researchers will develop competences and skills in the European Educational Area, European Research Area, and EU policy in sustainable development. They will also develop the skills in innovation and entrepreneurship they need to advance their career and play an active role in the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine. The hope is to organize the camps in hybrid format, to give possibility to some students to meet in-person, while connecting virtually with other participants.

Preliminary time for the Work Package: May and November 2024
