Building international collaborations: Highlights from the DISCO project

The International Cyber Academy, as one of the official partners of the European project Developing Innovative Sustainable Cooperation Opportunities (DISCO) by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), took part in the inaugural partners' meeting (DISCO Innovation Lab) held in Krakow from September 13th to 15th.

During the meeting, participants showcased the capabilities of their organizations, engaged in discussions about key roles and project task execution, mapped out joint educational initiatives for 2023–2024, and had the opportunity to explore Krakow Technology Park, where they were introduced to innovative startups.

The DISCO project aims to boost the innovation potential of European higher education institutions (HEIs) through collaborative educational initiatives, knowledge exchange, support for startups and advanced research, and the establishment of mentoring programs for students and faculty.

Partners from Poland, Norway, Switzerland, and Ukraine are joining forces in this project.

As part of the project, the International Cyber Academy will conduct research on how the cyber resilience of teachers, mentors, and students evolves as they acquire new skills on a specialized interactive platform. Additionally, workshops will be organized for both academic and non-academic educational environments focusing on innovation in cybersecurity. Moreover, support programs for Ukrainian startups are on the agenda.
