First year of TRUE project to promote entrepreneurship


The International project "Transforming Universities Towards Entrepreneurship" (TRUE), led by the University of Barcelona, celebrates now a year of positive impact on several university communities all around different European countries. "We are very satisfied for not only having exceeded our initial objectives, but also for the quality of each of the actions carried out. Our ambition and confidence in the impact of the TRUE project is only growing", says Claudio Cruz, director of StartUB! and principal researcher of the TRUE project.

The main objective of TRUE is to generate an impact on the educational ecosystem to close the wide gap still present between entrepreneurship, teaching and research. TRUE, a consortium of eight institutions collaborating with the aim of removing the obstacles present in the areas of innovation and entrepreneurship, defines itself as a powerful platform of accessibility for students and academic and non-academic staff to educational, customized support and other tools in this context. In addition to the UB, this initiative includes the involvement of the University of Extremadura, University of Montpelier and the Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon. link.
