European Entrepreneurship Education Workshop 2021


22-23 April 2021 Online

Entrepreneurship education looking forward  

Listen to this year's and last year's winners of EEEA, Slavica Singer and David Rae. This year, a broader perspective on entrepreneurship education is being taken to sum up 10 years of EEEW and to look ahead to new challenges.

Take part in the panel discussions: (1) How do policy and entrepreneurship education meet in a constructive way? (2) Where is entrepreneurship education research headed and what knowledge do we possibly lack? 

Sign up today!

Entreprenörskapsutbildning – ett framtida policyverktyg? 
Det finns ett stort stöd för entreprenörskap i Sverige, intressant nog är policystödet till entreprenörskapsutbildning ringa. Vi bjuder in till en paneldiskussion där vi diskuterar policys roll kopplat till entreprenörskapsutbildning och för- och nackdelar med att centralisera kompetens i och om entreprenörskapsutbildning i Sverige. Vi arrangerar diskussionen tillsammans med ett antal aktörer som på olika sätt driver frågor och kunskap om entreprenörskap i Sverige.

Moderator: Gustav Hägg, Postdoctoral fellow and Senior lecturer at Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship at Lund University School of Economics and Management and Malmö University.

Over the last 40 years the dual area of entrepreneurship and enterprise education has seen an incredible development. However, to establish oneself as a scholarly field there are a number of important institutional aspects that play a role. Over the last decade a number of review papers and scholarly concerns have been voiced about legitimacy as well as rigor versus relevance for the development of the field. Our discussion will centre around the past, the present, and the future of the scholarly field of entrepreneurship education. 

11:30 - 11:45  Final words and reflections.
