The two-day "Train the Trainer" event was organized by the University of Juraj Dobrila in Pula as part of the DYNAMIC project on the 10th and 11th of December 2020. The event brought together eminent experts from the fields of science and higher education, the private sector, development agencies, business incubators, chambers of industry and commerce and other interested stakeholders. More than 30 participants discussed the experiences and possibilities of dual education in Croatia.
We invite large and small enterprises to learn about dual education at the university level and the role and skills enterprise staff need to have when training students. We will present the results of an EU project that has introduced a pilot dual undergraduate engineering programme in Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania and teach industrial mentors what they need to know to successfully train and supervise students during placements in their enterprise.
