PatENT: Opening Doors to Entrepreneurship for Migrant Youth 1200 699 AY Institute

In our ever-changing world, where entrepreneurship is key to economic growth and diversity, we’re excited to introduce you to “PatENT” (patent entrepreneurship for migrants). This project is about tearing down the obstacles many young migrants face when trying to start their own businesses. Our aim? To empower migrant youth, make entrepreneurship more inclusive, and provide them with the support they need. In this blog post, we’ll dive into what PatENT is all about – its goals, activities, and the positive impact it’s set to make. So, come along on this journey with us as we explore how PatENT is working to create a more equal and prosperous future for everyone.

PatENT’s Action Plan

It all began with our online kick-off meeting, where partners came together to analyze project activities and set our course with a code of conduct. Now, we’re gearing up for some thrilling next steps. We’ll be delving into the stories of migrants, crafting a guidebook to establish dedicated educational hubs for learning, and developing a competency framework to empower our youth workers and educators.

But there’s more! To top it all off, we’re also creating educational documentaries and organizing a grand final project conference to establish a wide-reaching network of connections. From that kick-off meeting, we’re launching comprehensive research on migrants, complete with surveys, story collection, and documentary production. The result? A better working environment and heightened competence for our youth workers.

Inclusive Societies, Competent Youth, and Widespread Support

The project will celebrate more inclusive societies for migrant youth and help raise quality employment for all. In trying to create a better future, raising competencies and skills for youth workers will be important, leading to the development of new quality learning platforms. A created guidebook will establish a wide network of connections for everyone who needs help and answers.

Three main goals:

  • Inclusivity for everyone.
  • Raised competency.
  • Needed help is easily found.
