During the IP, students will work in a cross-cultural and trans-disciplinary teams. The skills to work in such heterogeneous teams will become increasingly important for employees in European companies. Experience of the participating partners shows that organizing intensive (short term) international projects is very important to stimulate Erasmus student mobility for study and placement. Students will also learn to work with peers with a different cultural background, using a language that is not their mother tongue. Therefore they will gain the self-confidence needed to do a longer term Erasmus experience afterwards.

The participating institutions will work closely together,as well during the preparation as during the implementation of the IP. Both during the preparation and implementation of the IP, the participating institutions will exchange experiences and approaches of the team. Hence, taking part in an IP is very ideal for peer learning between the institutions and for European benchmarking, especially in terms of analysing the supporting conditions for entrepreneurs and small business inititiatives. The quality of future exchanges of students and teachers between the different partner institutions can only benefit from this intensive and close cooperation.
