Latin American and European Cooperation on Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Foster university-industry relations. Develop the entrepreneurial skill sets of teachers, staff and students. Strengthen a university-wide spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship.
LISTO is a three-year Erasmus+ capacity building project (Key Action 2) with a focus on university-industry relations, entrepreneurial skills in education and university strategies for innovation. Coordinated by the International Office of Uppsala University, the project brings together 3 universities from Europe and 7 from Latin America to facilitate an exchange of knowledge and good practice for teachers, students, innovation office staff and university management.
The first meeting took place in Porto Alegre, Brazil on 11-13 December 2017 hosted by the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS).
A more detailed web portal is under construction and will be launched in the first quarter of 2018. For more updates, follow us on Twitter: #listoproject
