EntrNORDTEK Conference 7.-8.11.2018
Innovation ecosystem as a part of entrepreneurship education and training: Industry-University-collaboration and Triple Helix
Tampere University of Technology invites entrepreneurship educators, researchers and students from all Nordic and Baltic technical universities to Tampere, Finland for the annual Nordtek Entrepreneurship Conference. This year’s two-day conference is a great opportunity to meet colleagues and share ideas and experiences.
This year’s theme is Innovation ecosystem as a part of entrepreneurship education and training: we will discuss about Industry-University-collaboration and Triple Helix. Successful and sustainable entrepreneurship requires collaboration and co-innovation among diverse players who all can contribute, and integration of these multiple perspectives. This provides challenges but also future avenues for entrepreneurship education and research.
You will have the opportunity to hear speeches from professors all over Nordics, participate in interesting workshops, get to know Impact Canvas as a tool and visit interesting platforms and events in the university and Tampere area.
NORDTEK is a network of the Rectors and Deans of the Technical Universities in the five Nordic countries. Membership requires that you have to have a background in advanced engineering up to the Master’s level and PhD in a technical research field. The members represent 27 universities, more than 120,000 students, teachers and researchers.
