Employability of graduating students is a main precondition for successful university to work transition. Discrepancies on the labour market in terms of demand and supply of highly qualified specialists, increasing requirements and expectations of recently university graduates towards their future jobs, high speed of technological changes resulting in new jobs for which educations is lagging behind and increasing demand for well-developed transferable skills are some of the main challenges which universities are facing nowadays. Thus, their main priorities shall stress on collaboration that is more effective with industrial companies, resulting in contemporary curricula and development and implementation of new forms of cooperation for encouragement of graduating students’ employability. There are some good practices in Bulgaria for common initiatives leading to better professional orientation and further job placing but there is a lack of overall strategic approach in this field. Therefore, there is a necessity of identification and introduction of new forms of cooperation, which will boost partnership and could provide the labour market with more adequate specialists, matching employers’ recent requirements. The purpose of the paper is to provide a methodology of evaluation of problems in university-industry cooperation for encouragement of graduating students’ employability.The main elements of research of cooperation between universities and industry in Bulgaria include (1) description of possible forms of cooperation, (2) evaluation of industry attitudes for cooperation based on 4 criteria - importance, application, interest for participation and awareness of the forms, (3) comparison of opinions of industry and universities in Bulgaria.
This is a speech by superintendent Tomasz Trawinski, the regional police commander in Poznań,
who opened the first of the series of conferences devoted to the history of financial crime in Poland.
The present threat of escalating financial crime is not only the concern of the agencies established for
fighting this abnormality, but also of other institutions which can potentially be of help in fulfilling
this task. In this field, the Polish police is open to new formsofcooperation and one of them is the
collaboration with academic and scientific centers
The paper presents good practices and selected problems of creating cooperation networks. The basics of creating and disseminating new forms of cooperation between enterprises and universities have been described. Based on the implemented international project “3DCentral - Catalyzing Smart Engineering and Rapid Prototyping”, selected conclusions from creating network and management of many project activities including innovative technologies are presented.
The article presents forms of cooperation and social benefits resulting from cooperation between universities and business practice. Basic kinds and directions of mutual relations arising from common areas of interest, possibilities, needs and conditions for the functioning of each side, have been presented. Solutions carried out by universities with the participation of business practice have been discussed. In case of business practice, potential areas of cooperation with schools and joint ventures in the area of R&D have been discussed.
The article presents issues associated with forming the relations of a scientific-research institution with the stakeholders and creating the added value of these relations. The basic groups of stakeholders and forms of cooperation with a scientific-research institution and their practical solutions are presented. The discussion concerning these issues is illustrated with the example of a training project carried out with funds from the National Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR).
The paper deals with various forms of communication of large museum institutions with the public, and particularly the university students. Also, the paper deliver analyses communication media in use of the Moravian Gallery in Brno as an example. The complementary „Experiment Videomapping“ projection from June 10, 2015 performed on the facade of the Governor’s Palace, Moravian Gallery is described as a specific form of cooperation. The event is reflected from a broader perspective of cooperation and communication of the museum/gallery with the expert public.
Destination management is considered as an advanced form of cooperation among tourism stakeholders who are associated in a destination management organization (DMO). In developed tourist destinations such as the Alpine regions, these institutions were formed spontaneously after a few years dealing with the socio-economic changes in demand to prove their competitiveness. This process strengthened their cooperation. In the Czech and Slovak Republic destination management does not have a long tradition. Although numerous tourism organizations have been established, their identification as DMOs is questionable especially considering the length of cooperation development in the Alpine regions. Therefore the article examines on an example of the Slovak Republic.
Activation of the polish coastal tourist reception region using the instrument of a Public-Private Partnership
Public-Private Partnership (PPP) is a form of cooperation between the public sector and the private in order to carry out projects or services traditionally supplied by the public sector. This mode of investment is most commonly applied to the creation of technological infrastructure projects. According to the author PPP will allow coastal tourist communes (gminas) to speed up the implementation of the communication infrastructure, and the sport and recreational infrastructure which are presently major barriers to the development of the tourist economy. This is further confirmed by examples presented in this work.
Multisourcing is a relatively new phenomenon that began a decade ago as companies began developing strategies to split large information technology (IT) contracts into smaller ones. This provided the opportunity to choose best-of-breed suppliers, who were supposed to collaborate to provide a seamless service to the company. Firms began to multisource when the large IT contracts they had did not bring assumed benefits. At the same time, the business environment was forcing them to be flexible, efficient and able to quickly implement new technologies. The trend to multisource has been growing, so it is worth investigating why companies prefer this form of cooperation. This topic was not a subject of research previously.
The goal of the article is to identify, structure and analyze the motives for choosing multisourcing as a model for cooperation between frms. It verifies motives based on IT multisourcing literature. Case study is described, which, following Eisenhardt, is the correct method for early stages of studies on a topic such as multisourcing, which is still in its nascent stages.
The identified motives for multisourcing are uncertainty bounding, access to resources, preparedness, effectiveness, learning, and external motives. In any case, companies need to be mature and ready for it, so the motive of preparedness is the most crucial one to realize benefits of this form of cooperation. Knowledge of motives for multisourcing is important for companies that take decisions on service supplier strategy. The article helps to increase understanding of the multisourcing phenomenon and offers a fertile basis for future research.
This work is a preliminary pilot research aiming at defining the role of the Piechcin Diving Centre in the development of specialised tourism. Particular attention was paid to the various elements defining the quality of the services offered. The key aspects and reasons for which respondents visit the centre were also determined. Both the customer’s expectations of the organiser of this form of recreation were analysed, and research was made to help understand whether the time the customers spends at the centre facilitates a positive decision regarding the participation in diving trips in larger bodies of water, with particular consideration of the Baltic Sea. Different forms of cooperation between the centre and regional authorities in terms of promoting the region were also reviewed.
