SEE Project– Business Simulation and Entrepreneurship

The SEE project - Business Simulation and Entrepreneurship has as its central contribution to the growth of entrepreneurship in RAM, by increasing knowledge, technical and renovation skills and consolidation of professional practice, personal and behavioral stimulus to the development of entrepreneurial skills in the business of the region. A second goal of crucial importance to the project is to facilitate and promote business oportunities in a simulated environment, aimed at employability and the creation of enterprises with organization competences and management in face of the increasingly competitive market, with the support and guidance of teachers and academic advisors, using the appropriate information and communication technologies, logical means of information systems and integrated management.

In practical terms, the nature of innovation that will explore/boost through the project will find expression among the different target audiences and locatable:

  • In the population that attends higher education in RAM and particulary UMa students, in a extracurricular context, outside of the syllabus of their courses and in volunteer ways;

  • On students that attend technical and high school in RAM;

  • Along with RAM business;

  • Through cooperation with strategic project partners and the specifity of their field activities (AJEM, CEIM, SRE).

The Business Simulation being a key instrument of project intervention is as component wich optimal use is enhanced with the development, in parallel component of Entrepreneurship versus Business creation.
