For 100 years The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA), has been a meeting place to discuss and create the future, by bridging the business community, academia, public sector and the political sphere. IVA: s vision is technology in the service of humanity and entrepreneurs play an important role in this. As part of our 100-year anniversary, we are starting a project for strengthening entrepreneurship in Sweden.
In this project we will address entrepreneurship education at the higher education level, i.e. universities. We would like to invite you to be part of this process and to work with how we can strengthen and develop the Swedish entrepreneurship education. The work is long term and continuous.
The starting point will be this workshop where we bring together a limited number of entrepreneurship educators from our higher education institutions. We want it to be a meeting place and arena where we together develop a strategy and agenda for future entrepreneurship education in Sweden. Here we at IVA want to help as a facilitator in this process.
Programme: At the Entrepreneurship education workshop 2019 - Educating for the future, we want to discuss how we can strengthen and collaborate in order to develop the area in the future. The intention is to form an action orientated strategy that will be evaluated on a yearly basis. We want to address:
- The challenges and opportunities for entrepreneurship education in Sweden.
- Where are we today and how can we develop the area in the future?
- What actions do we need to take?
- Representatives from the business sector will share insights on what they are facing, and how they see how entrepreneurship education fits in that.
More information about the speakers and programme will be sent to you later. Welcome to IVA and to stimulating discussions.
We offer attendees at the workshop to stay on and take part in GCEC. IVA will waive the participation fee for those who wants to attend. At the end of GCEC we will gather at IVA to feed in the learnings from the conference. Read more at www.gcec2019.com
