The European project TANDEM + (Transformation, Acceleration, Networking, Development, Entrepreneurial education and Mentoring +) consists of the creation of an international alliance of entrepreneurial universities that aims to generate impact from higher education institutions in line with the Sustainable Development Goals included in the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations.

Tecnocampus is participating as a project partner, together with the University of Aveiro (Portugal), the project leader, the Strascheg Center in Munich (Germany), the Dundalk Institute of Technology (Ireland), the Fonden for den Entreprenørskab (Denmark), the University of Economics in Varna (Bulgaria), the Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek (Croatia) and the Czech Technical University in Prague (Czech Republic). The project is supported by EIT Urban Mobility and EIT manufacturing, which support the design and generation of entrepreneurship opportunities in these areas. In the first phase, which took place from July to December 2021, students, PDI and PAS have been part of the program, establishing an extensive international community to promote university entrepreneurship.

The Tecnocampus team is made up of professors Ester Bernadó, project manager; Jaume Teodoro and Alexandra Samper, from the Escola Superior Politècnica; Ismael Hernández, Valeria Bernardo and Giovanni Giusti, from the School of Social and Business Sciences; Anahí Moyano, head of university entrepreneurship, Ferran Huidobro, business growth project technician, Antonia González, head of entrepreneurship and business growth, David Rangil, entrepreneurship technician, and Marta Carceller, project technician.

About 220 students from all participating universities, including 12 Tecnocampus students, they have been part of the university program, where student teams worked on a challenge of sustainable mobility or innovation for the industry. 

On the other hand, about 42 teachers and 29 professionals linked to higher education institutions, 5 teachers and 3 technicians from different departments of the Tecnocampus, have been part of the "Train the Trainer" program, with the aim of being able to discuss, learn and incorporate methodologies aimed at developing entrepreneurial skills.

Phase 2 of the project begins in January 2022 with the new “Start for Future” program, coordinated by the Strasbourg Center for Entrepreneurship in Munich, which incorporates the incubation of student proposals in different European institutions and the co-creation with the industrial fabric. Three Tecnocampus students, Joan Gabarró, Pau López and Alberto Rodríguez have been selected to take part.
