The strengths of the IWBLabs Project: for companies- promotion, for secondary schools- broadening horizons of their learners and the possibility to carry out virtual traineeship as a practical part of the course of Economics. The project ideas are useful for the improvement of the learners’ career support activities in schools of our region.
Solid work has been done! The strengths of the project: the possibility to carry out traineeship not in one company, but in several companies; the opportunities not only for students, but also for traineeship tutors of VET providers to get in touch with international companies as it is not possible to become familiar with all the companies, which interest us, face-to-face. Thank you for the interesting and well-organized multiplier seminar!

All the aspects, ideas and commentaries of the IWBLabs Project are very useful. I wish you success and luck in your project!
A strength of the IWBLabs project: students can get international experience without going abroad and with little funding.
This project is something new. It is a great opportunity to save time. The most useful sources of the project for me are: the repository of e-learning video lessons and interviews because in nowadays the Internet is not only for young people, but also for experienced companies.
The platform is the most important aspect of the project but the presence of the guidelines provide a handbook to follow, which is very important.
The most interesting aspect and strenght is the fact that there are institution from different country, and that ensure to have different point of view
Being able to do virtual internship with foreign person allows small and medium companies s to explore new markets. / The project as a whole is well structured, both the necessary information and the tools are provided.

Getting to know the activity of SMEs in different countries and to have a first international experience it is very interesting for students.
I discover that agro-food companies have many different ways to spread their activity in the international market. I'm very satisfied with my participation in the project.

The IWBLabs project provides very useful materials for training activities. Students enjoyed watching videos in their own language and discover different cultures
What I liked the most about the IWBLabs project has been the possibility of participating in a virtual international internship and to improve my English knowledge through the video lessons and interviews
Video lessons are good for better motivation in education. Virtual internship can be used as topics for thesis and papers preparation.
Platform for virtual internships can be used as tool for preparation of students for their real life as employees, they can use their knowledge. Topics can be used for school papers etc. We appreciate better connection of school and practice.
The most interesting output for me is repository of video lessons and interviews. It is because it is most usable for my work of teacher. It is very suitable tool for students, but also for teachers to accompany partial topics (video lessons came from real companies). Virtual platform is a good opportunity to obtain virtual work experience. It can be good experience for students, but also for teachers.
Improvement of English language skills, Video lessons and real contact with practice.
Virtual internships - it is not necessary to travel abroad. Using foreign languages.
International internships - contact with different culture.
Repository of e-learning lessons and interviews can be used during educational process, for special subject teaching. It can help in better connection of school and companies. Virtual internships - it is a very good idea
Video lessons - clear, illustrative, fast, persuasive material - opinions of managers from real business. Platform - can be nice tool for confrontation of knowledge and opinions in international context - user can find information, which cannot be found anywhere else.
