KIIT-TBI is set to promote Women Entrepreneurship in India
Bhubaneswar: Enhancing Female Entrepreneurship in India (ENPRENDIA), a capacity-building consortium project was co-funded by Erasmus+ program of the European Union.
The ENPRENDIA has 8 Indian partners and 5 foreign partners including University of Lisbon (Portugal), Glasgow Caledonian University (Scotland), University College of Dublin (Ireland), Kinderburo University (Austria), University of Santiago Compostela (Spain).
The city-based KIIT University is the coordinating institution for the consortium, which held its first meeting at KIIT recently, where 24 representatives of all the partner institutions participated and deliberated on the roadmap and deliverables of the project.
Under ENPRENDIA, several trainings and workshops will be organised at both India and foreign counterparts and Entrepreneurship Resource Centres (ERC) will be created in all Indian Institutions which will help in promoting women entrepreneurship. Such partnership will bring cross border learning and build new collaboration in days to come.
Founder of KIIT and KISS Dr. Achyuta Samanta congratulated the coordinator of the project Dr. Mrutyunjay Suar (CEO of KIITTBI) for bringing such projects for a cause.
