The project entitled "The Third Mission of the Faculty of Economic Sciences at the University of Warsaw" is being implemented by the Faculty of Economic Sciences at the University of Warsaw within the framework of the Operational Programme Knowledge Education Development 2014-2020 "Third Mission of the University" Programme (agreement no. POWR.03.01.00-00-T241/18), which is co-financed by the European Social Fund

About the project

This training project is aimed at people who wish to broaden their knowledge and develop their skills in the field of economics, mathematics, and entrepreneurship.

We welcome people who want to stay professionally and socially active for as long as possible.

Taking part in the project will enable participants to improve competencies that are considered indispensable in social and economic life. The competitiveness of adults in the labour market will be improved and their preparation for fulfilling their professional duties or running their own businesses will be strengthened.

Young people will have the opportunity to prepare for further education at higher levels. At the same time, the risk of social exclusion will be reduced, and the professional activity of the participants will increase.

Course offered in English


This training project is intended to educate a total of 4,320 people over the 3 years (it is possible for some people to participate in several tasks). 

The main objective of the project is to increase the competencies of at least 1,680 primary and secondary school students (aged 12-19), who wish to broaden their knowledge in economics, mathematics, and entrepreneurship, as well as 823 adults who have completed their education but still want to develop in the above-mentioned areas, and 168 older adults and senior citizens who want to remain active for as long as possible.

The project will last 36 months, during which 8 activities are planned: 2 with the participation of young people (workshops, courses) and 6 with the participation of adults (training courses). It is assumed that due to the nature of the activities, at least 70% of the project participants will improve their competences in areas recognised as vital and needed in the labour market. As a result of the project implementation, participants will develop their knowledge and competencies, thereby strengthening their competitiveness in the labour market; they will also be better prepared to fulfil their professional duties or to run their own businesses (adults), and to undertake further education at higher levels (youth); at the same time, the risk of social exclusion will be reduced and the professional activity of participants will increase (older adults and senior citizens).
