(progetto finanziato nell'ambito del Programma Europeo Erasmus+)
The main purpose of the project is to strengthen the relationship between universities and industry by promoting the influx of new ideas in production systems, creating new job and business opportunities and stimulating the development of innovative start-ups through the creation of post degree paths that are the results of the cooperation of universities with industries.
Additional purposes of the project are to support the orientation of young people into the labour market and the cultural exchange between European Union countries by promoting international stages and internships.
Therefore, "House of Brains" will be an on-line educational platform that will offer masters and high training of excellence for graduates where teaching will be provided not only by academics, but especially by leading figures of the European business reality.
The rift of the project from the traditional training system will be mainly given by the fact that the training catalogue will be the product of a careful evaluation process of suitable arguments, resultant of the consultation between the participating universities and the business organizations. This process will help preventing the gap between what the university provides - in terms of
knowledge and skills - and what the labour market demands.
