Echoing the ECOViP Training of Trainers 1 (ToT1) held at the University of Alicante, Spain, last September 30 to October 6, a 2-Day Replication Workshop on Module 1 : Entrepreneurship and Employability Skills will be held on November 16 and 22, 2023 at LPU-Batangas.
Identified participants will have the opportunity to understand how we can foster innovation and entrepreneurship in ecotourism to support sustainable development in Vietnam and the Philippines. The workshop also aims to develop entrepreneurial and innovation capacities for sustainable development in tourism in Vietnam and the Philippines.
ECOViP “Fostering Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Ecotourism to support sustainable development in Vietnam and the Philippines” is a Strand 2 Capacity Building in the fields of Higher Education project that aims to develop entrepreneurial and innovation capacities for sustainable development in tourism in Vietnam and the Philippines.
The project is fully aligned with the priorities of the Erasmus CBHE programme to improve the quality of higher education and enhance its relevance for the labour market, improving the level of competences, skills and employability potential of HEI students and stimulating the cooperation between institutions and the exchange of good practices.
The initiative is also aligned with both countries’ priorities to improve the employability and entrepreneurship potential of their graduates and boost the Tourism sector (in particular through the fostering of more sustainable Tourism initiatives) which has been highly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The project consortium comprises 11 universities and 16 associate partners from Austria, Philippines, Portugal, Spain, and Vietnam. LPU-Batangas is involved in WORK PACKAGE 6 (WP6) for Curriculum Development, with the objective of enhancing the capacity of Philippine and Vietnamese HEIs to foster sustainable development in tourism. By creating educational content in entrepreneurship and initiating a curriculum reform process, LPU-B will also improve graduates’ employability. As part of this effort, LPU-B will develop a pilot online module on entrepreneurship for students.
