How to Implement Socio-Civic [SOC] Internships in Technical Universities’

06. July 2021. 10:25

The main objectives of this event are:

-            To spread the results of the Erasmus+ IN4SOC project

-            To involve additional organizations to offer internships by joining the IN4SOC network

-            To share the intellectual outputs

-            To explore cooperation areas among participants

This is the final dissemination event of the IN4SOC project (Internships for Enhancing Social and Civic Key Competences for Lifelong Learning in Technical Universities). IN4SOC aims to impact the way internships are designed across the EU in Technical Universities, by incorporating a social and civic (SOC) approach in line with the SDGs. The main objective of this project is to increase the involvement of technical universities in the social responsibility of the students’ host organizations, as a pedagogical approach that considers the acquisition of the key social and civic competence of students and strengthens the engagement of academia with the community.

It would be great to count with your attendance! We believe that the socio-civic model can enhance the internships experience in your university or organization.
