Project description

DISCO | Developing Innovative Sustainable Cooperation Opportunities is a project funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) to strengthen the innovation capacity of European higher education institutions (HEIs) through shared learning, cooperation, and flow of knowledge.

DISCO will boost the development of innovation and entrepreneurship skills in the entire knowledge triangle. This will be achieved through student training, advisory and coaching support for start-ups and scale-ups, as well as structured capacity-building among scientific and non-scientific staff of participating HEIs. The project will achieve its aims by designing and creating new forms of cooperation and experimentation through innovation labs, an observatory, and the development of a common massive open online course, all with a view to supporting the development of a sense of initiative and entrepreneurial mindsets across the EU.

The DISCO project is run for two years from July 2022 and is divided into 7 work packages.
