Former servicepeople of the Romanian Forces and youth who live in rural areas or intend to develop a rural business attended intensive entrepreneurship training under a pilot project developed by the Babes-Bolyai University (UBB) in Cluj-Napoca and The Prince of Wales Foundation.
"Training is also very useful for those who need to strengthen their management, marketing and/or strategy implementation skills, as it involves trainers with experience in adult education," the initiators of the program said in a release on Tuesday.
According to the representatives of the Cluj-Napoca University, this pilot project is not just the result of the collaboration between The Prince of Wales Foundation and the Babes-Bolyai University, but also an expression of the university's community involvement through the development of high quality continuous training programs.
"As a world-class oriented university, UBB has developed all three relevant main missions: knowledge generation (through research), knowledge dissemination (through education - teaching/learning) and knowledge use (through innovative transfer and outreach), which are recognized as such in the international rankings of universities, where UBB is on the top position in the country. By placing research at the center of the academic process, education at the UBB becomes a modern process, with interactive teaching and learning techniques and innovative, high quality services to the community," the release reads.

Starting from this academic profile of the Babes-Bolyai University and seeking to continue the positive collaboration experience, The Prince of Wales Foundation offers another 50 scholarships for another two entrepreneurship training classes at UBB. The first class graduated in November last year. The project is coordinated by the UBB Center for Continuing Education, Distance Learning and Part-time learning; the next enrollment deadline is January 18, 2019.
