Joining the dots of Enterprise Education: Are we creating the most effective Enterprise Eco-systems we can?

Tuesday June 9th 2020 10am – 4pm

University of Greenwich, Powerhouse, Cooper Building, King William Walk, SE10 9JH

Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about a range of enterprise delivery models.
  • Reflect on enterprise delivery at their own institution and share good practice with others.
  • Better understand their own USP – what makes your institution unique when it comes to enterprise education?
  • Gain better understanding of how to maximise internal and external networks and resources to benefit students.
  • Network with enterprise and entrepreneurship educators from across the UK.

Summary

Enterprise education at universities and colleges spans teaching, learning, research and extra-curricular activities.  But it is not always clear how these functions can or should work together; or where we should signpost students to after they leave our institutions. This EEUK Enterprise Exchange event will look at different examples of collaboration to help delegates to consider what might work well in their own organisations.

We will theme talks around questions such as ‘How do we make sure we’re all working on enterprise as a collective?’, ‘Do research, teaching and practice work together as much as we’d like them to?’ ‘Do our different providers of enterprise education function as an eco-system with a clear path for participants, or are they working towards different goals?’.

There will be speakers from within and outside of HE. As the University of Greenwich has just housed its enterprise activity together for the first time in a new hub, ‘The Powerhouse’, they will use this as a case study.  Goldsmiths University will be talking about their own development of a new enterprise hub with retail space, and how this will interact with their existing enterprise provision. Loughborough University will explain how their own model of enterprise delivery resulted in them being awarded the 2019 THE Outstanding Entrepreneurial University of the Year award.

We will also hear about two parts of the enterprise ecosystem that sit outside of HE; Zinc, a programme that challenges participants to develop solutions to societal problems, and HS Ventures, an ecosystem that builds and scales health startups.
