Contemporary labour market expresses high demand ICT competence in all areas of engineering and technology jobs, and this demand is even more stressed in the entrepreneurial sector as IT-business is one of the most fast-growing.
Currently neither ICT, nor engineering or technology majors in partner country universities receive any training in entrepreneurial development (their economic curricula is usually limited to basics of economic theory and organizing production unit).
Also, engineering and technology majors rarely get sufficient training in ICT, especially in the part of emerging IT-technologies - in partner country universities ICT competence is given in a form of some software engineering tools without creating a possibility for life-long learning in the field.
