Individual learning through participation

Workshops are the perfect setting for in-depth discussions and practical learning on a specific topic. The workshops organized during the conference will focus on specific topics, inviting participants to be actively involved in the workshop and the discussions during these workshops.

Leading the Entrepreneurial University

The workshop is designed for University Leaders who not only want to explore the concept of the entrepreneurial university and undertake a self-assessment of current practice but who are also eager to go much further and to learn about the practical steps by which they can help to make their universities more entrepreneurial. The workshop will focus on an action-oriented approach with the purpose of helping participants to translate key concepts into their own context and to take local actions that will deliver real change. Proper consideration will be given to the challenges of change management in the specific context of Higher Education.

Regional Innovation Workshop - How to establish Regional Innovation Alliances

The Innovation Alliance partnership is a major new EU funded programme designed to develop collaborations between higher education institutions, small and medium sized enterprises and innovation support organisations.

It is aimed at helping SMEs to access research and training in universities to boost their innovation capacity and benefit their bottom line, while universities will be able to find new outlets to generate direct economic returns from their research.

This workshop describes an innovative approach being piloted across Europe in the development of Regional Alliances of actors within local Entrepreneurial Ecosystems, who have come together to develop direct working relationships to drive innovation in their regions.

Innovation Alliances have already been formed in four countries and their work is already bringing results - you can hear about the efforts of all four EU Innovation Alliances today….

Join this highly-interactive, hands-on workshop to learn:
  • How to form an Innovation Alliance
  • What works/ what doesn't
  • About Roadmaps for HEI/SME Collaboration
  • How to most effectively transfer University research to benefit both SMEs and HEIs
  • How to best advise project participants on the most effective pathways to achieve innovation in regions
