The projects we carry out focus on entrepreneurship, innovation, broadly understood management, and improving the competence of various groups of beneficiaries. Apart from projects aimed at KU students, we have carried out projects for small, medium, and large enterprises and their employees, people aged 50+, and academics. We also conduct multi-faceted commissioned research and take part in tendering procedures.
