  • Who is RMIT Europe?

    We're the creative and dynamic European hub of RMIT University – a multi- sector university of technology, design, and enterprise with more than 91,000 students and 11,000 staff globally.

    Based in the heart of Barcelona, our focus is on successfully extending RMIT's international engagement and strategically growing the University's collaborative research and education activity in Europe.

    We facilitate RMIT's collaboration in the development of innovative pan- European projects attracting global knowledge from Europe, Australia, and Asia to deliver local impact.

    We're a collaborative and dynamic international team, passionate about driving impact through our work, celebrating our achievement, and having fun along the way.

    Let's talk about the role.

    RMIT Europe has recently been selected as a partner on two EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology) funded projects aiming at improving entrepreneurial education and uplifting entrepreneurial capability and capacity across higher education institutions and the wider innovation community.

    The aims of the projects are:

    1. TICER: The first project will develop a training program for transport and city professionals as part of the urban mobility transformation. The program aims to educate this target group (e.g., innovators, start-ups) so they can successfully implement their solutions within cities. The project is funded by the EIT Urban Mobility KIC.

    2. Network IQ Alliance: The second project is committed to mainstream network intelligence (nIQ) – an innovation methodology which empowers individuals to amplify their growth opportunities from the networks they build to innovate better, faster and have long-term resilience. This project also aims to expand the training provision at higher education institutions as part of the EIT HEI Initiative.

    RMIT University has developed a suite of entrepreneurial training modules delivered as part of the RMIT Activator program. RMIT Europe's' role in the above projects is to adapt and deliver these modules to a European market.

    The post-holder will coordinate RMIT Europe's contribution on both these projects and deliver on the tasks assigned to us. Specifically, this will include understanding the methodologies underpinning the RMIT Activator training and being able to deliver this to a range of participants within the higher education and broader entrepreneurial ecosystem. The individual will be fully trained and supported throughout the duration of the projects and will draw on RMIT Activator programme collateral and educational materials.

    The post holder will also be expected to contribute to RMIT Europe's strategy of expanding the RMIT Activator and entrepreneurial capability and venture building in Europe. This will include elements of business development and stakeholder management.
