CITE – Computing Innovation for Technology Entrepreneurship

The cooperation project in higher education 18-COP-0012 CITE – Computing Innovation for Technology Entrepreneurship, proposed by the POLITEHNICA University of Bucharest together with Østfold University College will take place between October 2019 and September 2022 (it was extended by one year due to the pandemic of COVID 19)

The project is carried out through the Education, Scholarships, Apprenticeship and Youth Entrepreneurship Program financed by the EEA Financial Mechanism (2014-2021) and mainly aims to improve the didactic and research components for the Master’s programs of the Faculty of Engineering in Foreign Languages ​​in the fields of Engineering and Management and Computers and Information Technology.

The project aims to increase students’ interest and performance in the areas of innovation and entrepreneurial initiative. There is a clear recognition of the need to raise the role of universities in the Romanian entrepreneurial ecosystem, and the project directly aims at this objective. Increasing the quality and quantity of information technology business initiatives in Romania focuses directly on the top two priority sectors of EEA grants: innovation, research, education, and competitiveness, as well as social inclusion, youth employment, and poverty reduction.

The objectives of the project refer to the master’s programs (curriculum, students, and academic staff) that prepare the students of the Faculty of Engineering in Foreign Languages ​​at an advanced level in the field of management and engineering and in the field of computers. Within the project, two new disciplines will be created: “Information and Communications Technology Entrepreneurship” and “Information and Communications Technology-based Innovation”. The Romanian students will benefit from mobilities in the partner university, and the professors of the two universities will collaborate for the direct involvement of the students in research. Students will be actively integrated – former students who have created successful startups will participate in the creation of case studies and present their experiences, and current students will contribute to the evaluation of the courses.
