(5 higher education institutions and 6 business organisations)
The DIFME partnership was carefully set up having in consideration the identified needs, the objectives of the project as well as the knowledge, skills and competences required by the tasks and activities to be developed in the lifespan of the project. The partnership and the successful application for funding was put together by Malta Business Bureau, which project was selected from a large number of EU wide submissions.
DIFME is a transnational result-driven partnership made up of 5 higher education institutions and 6 business organisations.
All partners have been researching the topic and testing-based learning, research on real trends and needs of entrepreneurs. This is evidenced also by the type and number of successful previous and current projects that the partners have participated in. The DIFME partnership brings together experienced and strong knowledgeable European organisations at the forefront of entrepreneurship and HEIs.
All partners will contribute to all the WPs and the transversal activities such as dissemination, exploitation and quality assurance. This will ensure that there is consistent effort by all parties.
