The participants will be youngsters, aged 17-30 years, and will come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The project was born to address the need of youngsters to acquire more essential information for their development than is offered in the formal education system.

General Description

Today’s leaders must navigate business issues and interactions that cut across geographical boundaries and cultures. They must inspire conversations, ignite collaboration and integrate multiple perspectives to drive growth and innovation.

Inspiration, firsthand information, advice from accomplished individuals, are the ingredients, which constitute the flesh and bone of success, that are so often overlooked by management scholars.

Be on T.I.M.E puts these ingredients front and centre, allowing you to fraternize with social, practitioners, opinion makers and academic insiders through a set of activities based on Non-Formal education.

The course aims to:
– introduce participants, from a practical perspective, to business problems and challenges in order to get acquainted with actual business situations, problem identification, and problem solving approaches
– engage participants to the business ideas generation processes, assessment methods, and stages of developing business ideas
– support participants toward the preparation of actual demos/prototypes of their business ideas.

During the project participants will engage in real-life business problems, generate business ideas, prepare business plans (working in teams) and also prepare demos/prototypes for their business ideas. They will interact with the instructors and mentors as well as with business practitioners (company executives).

They will use modern learning resources (case studies, software and simulations) and they will compete for a business plan award and a best demo/prototype award.

During the YE project the participants will be under the supervision of the instructors and mentors who will offer knowledge, skills and guidance on education and training activities and provide feedback on performance; and with whom the graduate regularly discusses the progress in her/his activities during the course. “Be on T.I.M.E” Youth Exchange will focus on non-formal education.



This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.
