Alexander Innovation Zone participated in the Erasmus + POWER program in collaboration with the following organizations (5 Universities and 4 Incubators) from Greece, Spain, Latvia, Poland and Finland.

Program Objective

The POWER programme aimed to create a sustainable pan-European internship ecosystem, which focuses primarily on the placement of postgraduate students with high qualifications from partner Universities in internship positions in startups.

For the most effective management of placements an electronic platform was set up that facilitated the matching between positions offered by startups and students seeking for an internship.

The members of the POWER consortium had set ambitious goals to work closely with more than 50 partners, including universities, networks across the EU and incubators.
