The WINnovators project in Serbia aims to address crucial needs by promoting digital, entrepreneurial, STEM/STEAM, innovation, and sustainability skills among young women from rural areas. This initiative not only introduces new training practices but also provides opportunities for the development of entrepreneurial ideas, thus breaking down barriers to female entrepreneurship.

Developing Skills and Capacity Building

One of the key objectives of WINnovators is to develop new teaching and training approaches in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that build essential skills among students. These approaches involve engaging students and external informal learners in capacity-building activities that benefit local communities. By fostering teamwork and innovation, WINnovators aims to create change agents among HEI students and educators.

Building a WINnovators Community

Central to the WINnovators project is the establishment of a supportive community facilitated by an interactive working space. This platform serves as a hub for collaboration, providing valuable resources for teachers, students, and learners alike. Through gamified e-trainings and e-modules, WINnovators encourages the development of competencies essential for success in the digital age.

The project aims to create a gamified learning environment that fosters collaboration and motivation, ultimately empowering participants to pursue opportunities in STEM, digital innovation, sustainability, and entrepreneurship.
