Objective of the Project

The main aim of the project was successfully completed in terms of reaching the target groups in the project. During the project, a group of twenty students from the University of Economics, Prague were directly involved in practical sessions in three companies- Nano Energies in the City of Prague, Linet Group in the Central Bohemian Region and Jansen Display in the Usti nad Labem Region. The students were engaged in hands on experience in different departments of the selected companies such as Quality Management, Marketing, Sales, Finance, Export, Maintenance and Facility Management. Throughout the project, the students were supervised and guided by mentors from the University of Economics, who guaranteed the outcome and the performance of the students. The mobilities between Iceland and the Czech Republic were carried out because the participants visited companies in both countries. At the end of the project, a concise handbook with recommendations for the companies in which the students visited was created as an outcome of the analyses. A final workshop and several local and international conferences were held in order to disseminate project outcomes and results.
