IDEATE at HEKATE Conference
On 22. September 2015 Rosemary Borup, as a guest speaker, from Staffordshire University presented the IDEATE project at the HEKATE Conference in Brussels. The theme of the conference was Entrepreneurial Education, and it brought together some of the current EU projects addressing this important issue. Projects represented included HEKATE and BIOiNNO, these being projects that focussed on post graduate entrepreneurial opportunities, and showed great innovation in matching post graduate students and business partners.
The IDEATE project stood out as the project focussing on embedding entrepreneurial education into cross faculty curricula – reaching out to all students, whether nurses, engineers or biologists. The presentation resulted in a lively debate around Universities and their role in developing entrepreneurial behaviours in their students.
The event was also a great opportunity to learn about other complimentary projects, and some great contacts have been made, to carry forward into IDEATEs final year!
