Abstract

Traditional teaching methods being adopted in higher education across European Universities are not contributing effectively to the real needs of today’s world. The current challenges that the world is facing, concerning the new economic paradigms, centred on eco-sustainability along with global and unbalanced competitiveness, demand new answers from the universities. The professionals that universities must create should be prepared with the right set of hard and soft skills so they can rapidly contribute with new energy to the existing enterprises and other organizations.
