“HoB - House of Brains” is a strategic cooperation project run jointly by educational institutes and businesses, intended to improve the skills and knowledge of students so that their abilities are optimised to meet the needs of businesses. It involves 10 partners from four EU countries: Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Spain. The ultimate aim of the project is to implement the HobPlatform, a virtual learning
environment offering highly specialised training courses for graduates. It will be developed by the project partners based on the actual needs of the businesses, concentrating on horizontal skills and spirit of initiative and entrepreneurship, qualities that are widely appreciated by companies and are often underrepresented in educational programmes.
