> SPIN-UP Training Pilots
SPIN-UP pilots were successfully held in Portugal, The Netherlands and Finland. This was a chance to test and get feedback on the training and coaching programme. The pilots had the participation of 30 University Spin-Offs and feedback was very positive. The most significant conclusion is that the programme needs, in terms of scheduling, to be adapted to each country's realities. Following the pilots, the partnership will introduce improvements to the training and coaching programme.
