WINnovators was presented, together with another Erasmus+ funded project, as a best practice promoting e-learning as an enabler of education and development for disadvantaged groups of people.
The occasion was the “India-Serbia workshop on selected topics of Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology techniques and applications”, which was held at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Belgrade on June the 13th. The workshop saw the participation of researchers from Serbia and India, and aimed at strengthening the collaboration between the two countries at an academic level.
Vladan Devedzic (University of Belgrade and Baden Network) gave a speech that highlighted the role of WINnovators in allowing the target group of young women from remote rural areas to increase their employability prospects and improve their entrepreneurship skills. This will be possible thanks to a customized and interactive e-learning platform that will really facilitate informal education. In doing this, the project really succeeds to “shine a light” on the career path of the targeted young women, by indicating them directions that often get either omitted or misunderstood in traditional schools.
