Kick-Off Meeting of UXiship Project
The project "Accelerating ICT students' startup development competence via interdisciplinary modular courses in the HEI curricula (UXiship)" is designed to take 3 years and involves 9 universities from Russia, Kazakhstan, Germany, Latvia, and Estonia.
The universities consortium applied with the project in February 2019 and after several stages of evaluation and selection by European and national experts, the project was approved for implementation. It's worth noting that 833 applications had been submitted to that call by the candidates from all over the world.
At the beginning of December UXiship consortium members' representatives gathered at Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University for a kick-off meeting to discuss organizational architecture, communication, and a roadmap for the first year of the project. RSUE is assigned to be one of the five work package leaders and is responsible for the project outcomes sustainability.
