RESCUU Work Package 2

Two boot camps were organised within this work package. The aim was to help students to develop competences and skills in communication and project management as well as in innovation and entrepreneurship. The students and young researchers need to advance their careers as they will play an active role in the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine. The boot camps were organized in a hybrid format, giving the possibility for some students to meet in person, while connecting virtually with other participants and experts from Poland, Sweden, Finland, and Latvia.

The work package will be in two parts:

  • WP 2.1. Boot Camp for International Cooperation in Research and Innovation
  • WP 2.2. Boot Camp for International Cooperation in Entrepreneurship for Sustainable development
