ICA-Edu Colloquium 2019
The topic of the ICA Edu Colloquium 2019 is “Let the entrepreneurial genie out of the bottle! How will we stimulate the nascent entrepreneurial skills of our students?”
The new generation of life sciences graduates are expected to show creativity, resilience, pro-activeness and risk taking while being able to recognise business opportunities: in short to exhibit entrepreneurship competencies. Whereas traditionally entrepreneurship education was the domain of business schools to stimulate new venture creation, entrepreneurship education has become more and more a university wide approach, focussing on the development of an entrepreneurial mind-set and entrepreneurial competence among staff and hence the students.
The goal of this Colloquium is to share views, experiences and practices on how to stimulate the nascent entrepreneurship competencies in curricular as well as extra-curricular activities in the Life sciences.
The Colloquium will be held on Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 May 2019 at the Leuven Institute for Ireland in Europe, Leuven, Belgium.
