TRANS-EDU-NET Road-map for educational materials
The “Road-map on Education Materials” is part of the European project “Transnational Educational Network for young people - new technologies and entrepreneurial thinking in the tourism industry”, with acronym TRANS-EDU-NET, funded by the “Balkan-Mediterranean” Programme 2014 – 2020. It is based on “Transnational Strategy for organization of trainings and curricula towards growth and employment of young people in the tourism” that was drafted following a transnational study of the situation with education in tourism, including curriculum assessment and institutional profile; analysis of the profile and needs of the students in tourism specializations and tourism entrepreneurs from four Balkan countries respectively in Bulgaria, Albania, North Macedonia and Greece.
The Road-map on Education Materials presented in this document addressed the opportunity for enhancing entrepreneurial culture in the transnational region and employment creation (including self-employment), and further developing tourism opportunities by using the young people (16-30 age) as an engine for competitiveness of the region. Collaboration is an essential part for successfully addressing the above opportunity by creating a transnational educational network for entrepreneurs in the field of tourism.
A strong transnational educational network will grant a synergic approach to promote sharing, integration and transfer of know-how, allowing filling the considerable disparities in innovation and entrepreneurial support capacity within the region. It will promote the mutual knowledge about innovations, entrepreneurship and competitive development of SMEs in the tourism industry and will reveal investment opportunities within specific subsectors of the tourism or related sectors.
Not only young people (16-30 years old), but also SMEs in the tourism industry will benefit from the newly established educational platform, virtual entrepreneurial rooms and business simulation game, and all project activities. The added value of the TRANS-EDU-NET is reflected in the development of entrepreneurial skills and mindset among young people (not a simple transmission of knowledge), in the development of virtual spaces for shaping these skills.
