In April 2019, the OPEN consortium met at the University of Cadi Ayyad in Marrakech. Prof. Dr. Rainer Herpers and Sabine Schüler represented H-BRS. One day was organized by Horst Herrmann, consultant and managing director of Professional Start. Professors from both universities, employees and 2 invited entrepreneurs from Marrakech took part in the workshops titled "Business models and entrepreneurial skills" and "Leadership, Teamwork, Team-management and Teamleading".
At the same time, 20 Master students took part in a workshop on "Design Thinking", which was very well received. Director Yannis Beuke works as an expert for agile methods at Protostart GmbH.
A student exchange is also part of the project:
A Moroccan doctoral student from Marrakech, Uni Cadi Ayyad is currently doing research at H-BRS from April to September 2019. From September to December 2019, two Master students from the University of Mohammed V in Rabat will be visiting.
The OPEN 3 project is on the home straight, but the cooperation with the Moroccan partners will not come to a standstill. Thus, the meeting in April also served toagree on further possibilities for cooperation.
