The 2014 Entrepreneurial Universities Good Practice Event!
The most important event in 2014 for all those willing to become more engaged, innovation-oriented and entrepreneurial
Universities and research institutions play a key role in today’s society. In addition to educating students and performing research, universities are more and more engaged with their region and business. However, the transition from a traditional university to a more engaged and entrepreneurial one is a complex and long journey.
The 2014 Entrepreneurial Universities Event will bring together around 150 academics and professionals driving this change – in their university, research institution, or in government or intermediaries.
Already before the event, you have access to different tools to analyse your individual situation. During the event, you will connect to other participants having similar challenges, goals and interests. Our online networking tool, UIIN Connect, will facilitate this networking already before the conference by helping you to find the right networking partners.
In Madrid you will get to know 20 good practice cases, each being extensively presented & discussed in 45 minutes. Furthermore, more than 25 concepts and ideas for further developing the entrepreneurial university will be showcased. After the event, having brought home new ideas and concepts, we provide you with material supporting you in the implementation of the approaches learned.
However, the key element bringing all this together is a welcoming and encouraging environment. Which place could be better than an actual good practice example? Therefore we would like to welcome you to the Campus of Excellence of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM).
