Projects »the Creative Path to Knowledge« (po kreativni poti do znanja) are aimed to foster collaboration between higher education system and the industry. Moreover, they offer students a possibility to gain competencies and experiences that are needed for transitioning from the school system into working life. The programme is supported by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport and the European Union. The focus is for students to find creative and innovative solutions to practical challenges in the corporate sector. These students are guided by mentors offering expert support.
