Joining the dots of Enterprise Education: creating effective enterprise eco-systems 

Thursday 3rd November 2022, 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 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 spans teaching, learning, research and extra-curricular activities.

It’s not always clear how these functions can or should work together, so this event will look at different examples of collaboration to try and create a model (or models) of best practice. We will also explore ‘what’s next?’ for our entrepreneurial students and stakeholders, thinking about how to link them up effectively to the wider enterprise eco-system beyond the walls of the university.

We will theme discussions and activities around questions such as ‘how can enterprise education work effectively both within and outside of the curriculum?’, ‘do research, teaching and practice work together as much as we’d like them to?’, ‘how can we develop and expand the enterprise eco-system with local key players?’, and ‘how can student entrepreneurs help to build our enterprise communities?’As the University of Greenwich housed our enterprise activity together into a new enterprise hub, the Powerhouse in 2020, we will use this as a case study and invite other institutions to share their own experiences.
