EEEW 2016: Entrepreneurship education and support systems – closing the gap?
Entrepreneurship is a topic of our time. At the same time as we see an increased interest in entrepreneurship education, we can also see increased support for entrepreneurship in the so-called eco-systems surrounding universities. That is to say, we find incubators, support organisations, financial actors, etc. supporting entrepreneurship. The educational system and the support system exist side by side, both with the purpose of developing entrepreneurship in society. But – are they aware of each other?
European Entrepreneurship Education Workshop is a two-day workshop. Day one is a plenary session while day two has a much more practical focus.
Thursday 21st April
Venue: Elite Hotel Ideon, starting with lunch
One of the main questions being discussed in a plenary session at EEEW 2016 is: Should, and can, entrepreneurship educators and the surrounding support system cooperate and what is, and could be, the takeaway from such cooperation?
We want it to be a critical discussion on the roles of the different actors and their respective “boundaries”, i.e. should entrepreneurship education serve as “incubators” or as a means of human development? The discussion will also address if, and how, these “boundaries” could be crossed, i.e. what would good cooperation between education and support system be like? And how do we make sure that the knowledge developed within the broad field of entrepreneurship becomes known for those who work within the support system? Three interesting cases will be the point of departure for the discussion.
The European Entrepreneurship Education Award 2016 will be presented during a Gala Dinner at Hypoteket.
