Achievement of Commitment

In years 2012 and 2013 the International School for Social and Business Studies (ISSBS) will undertake to implement the summer school project “Innovation in Business – Environmental Challenges”. The programme will enhance participant's creativity and innovation and by raising their awareness of environmental issues and demonstrating actual environmental solutions guiding their thought and action in the field of business challenges in environmental science. Participants will be acquainted with several practical examples and with project work encouraged to innovative business engagement in the global environment.

How this will be achieved

Strong connection between the IP and business environment will be established through inclusion of domestic companies, especially the ones active in management of drinking and waste water, renewable energy and therefore addressing many relevant current environmental issues. Their contribution will be to make the learning more practice oriented. Guest speakers from companies will introduce real world problems. Study visits to the companies will be organized in order to base some study units of the program on actual business situations etc. ISSBS has established an ongoing open communication with several members of business sector. Links with companies will be actively put to practise in the form of representatives from companies working with groups of students at their group project work. Moreover, the programme will contribute in strengthening links between higher education institutions and business sector making their transition form study to labor market easier. Main part of the summer school will be live case studies aimed at identifying business opportunities in the field of environmental protection and sustainable development and the preparation of student's group projects.
