SUCSESS – Strengthening university-enterprise cooperation in South Africa to support regional development by enhancing lifelong learning skills, social innovations and inclusivity
Project Duration: 15 January 2020 – 14 January 2023
The SUCSESS project is sponsored by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education funding. The project focuses on strengthening the cooperation between higher education institutes (HEI) and businesses in the Republic of South Africa (RSA). The development of the knowledge triangle (student-teacher-enterprise cooperation) is an important part of the project. New learning methods based on experiential learning will make it possible for students to learn together with the industry in real-life projects, which is important since the employability of graduates from universities in RSA is not at the same level as in Finland, for example.
The SUCSESS project includes several themes such as regional and community development, as well as improved employability of students through transformational and life-long learning skills. The idea is to support an inclusive and sustainable economy by enhancing strategic partnerships and collaboration between HEIs and businesses as well as by improving prerequisites for innovation and knowledge sharing.
