Developing the Cross-Cultural Skills of Graduates in Response to the Needs of European Enterprise

Language: EN

Posted by Sa'ad Ali

This project aims to develop the intercultural competencies of graduates and employees in Europe by enhancing the quality and relevance of their skills to enable them to be active professionals in the European working environment.

The project investigates the perceived and actual intercultural competencies of graduates required by employers and then provides outputs that help address these needs.

The project responds to the European Commission’s (EC) Strategic Framework – Education & Training 2020 view, that there has been a lack of focus on the involvement of social institutions on the cross-cultural skill-needs that companies have and on the effectiveness of investment in education and training in this area on business productivity.

This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.

Project Number 2019-1-UK01-KA203-061672.
