The MHELM project aims to develop and implement a leadership and management development programme for managers in higher education at Moldovan universities. The project aims to support managers (rectors, deans, administrative heads, academic staff with managerial responsibilities) in the field of science management and to perfect their professional competences with an individually adapted leadership and management development programme.

GITA – Growing Indonesia – a Triangular Approach

With a population of over 260 million, Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s largest economy and the world’s fourth most populous nation. Current support for start-ups is fragmented and there is a need for a more coordinated approach by educational institutions, government bodies and industry in building Indonesia’s entrepreneurial capacity and in reducing reliance on foreign labour as well as outward economic migration.

The Growing Indonesia – a Triangular Approach (GITA) project integrates business – university collaboration, graduate entrepreneurship and enterprise creation and operates at a national, regional, local, institutional and programme level. 


The project is creating a growing network of Growth Hubs across Indonesia aimed at embedding entrepreneurship education into University curricula and providing support services to local entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. These hubs are physical spaces with an incubation facility for cultivating innovation and exploiting new ideas applied to the local and regional economies.

The creation of Growth Hubs is the central and outward facing component of the innovative Growing Indonesia Triangular Approach (GITA) that integrates business-university collaboration, graduate entrepreneurship and enterprise creation in a strategic way to embed entrepreneurial thinking and activity across all organisational levels.

GeSoB was assigned as External Evaluator to oversee the progress and the quality of the outcomes and contributed a seasoned membership to the steering group.

Project duration

Oktober 2017 – Oktober 2020
