EICAA platform is online

The team of the Entrepreneurial and Intrapreneurial Competences Assessment Alliance (EICAA) has made it: The EICAA platform is live. The tool for recording and developing entrepreneurial competencies was officially presented at the EAIR Forum in Linz in early September. "The focus of the event was, among other things, on higher education and research in higher education," says Sandra Bier of Univations. "An ideal podium and expert audience for our platform."

Positive feedback in Linz

The EICAA consortium was represented several times in the extensive program. In a 90-minute workshop, part of the team presented the tool and its functions in detail. In addition, other EICAA representatives explained the complex scientific approach in different paper presentations. "We are very pleased that we were able to present ourselves so broadly," says project manager Bier. "The feedback was very positive. In general, many interested parties were surprised at what we have accomplished within three years."

The EICAA platform is a survey and training tool in one. Users can analyze their entrepreneurial competencies and, based on their results, receive suggestions for learning modules to strengthen specific skills. The EICAA platform can be used both in higher education and in companies.

Free use of the platform

"We are still in the pilot phase. But it's been promising so far," says Sandra Bier. "The platform can already be used free of charge and at a low threshold. All it needs is access to the Internet and an appropriate terminal device." Until the end of the project in December, the aim now is to make as many people as possible aware of EICAA, she adds. The next step for the project team is to evaluate the project and produce the final outputs.

But the EICAA team wouldn't be the EICAA team if it wasn't already developing ideas beyond that. "We hope to get together soon to think about a follow-up project next year," Bier says. "What's clear, in any case, is that the platform still offers endless possibilities."
