Event description

Description

Swiss universities generate about 60-80 spin-offs each year…but…how do we stimulate the other 220’000 students to unleash their creative potential for the benefit of society and the Swiss economy?

With a focus on cantonal universities and technical schools, this workshop brings together experts interested in enhancing student innovation culture and entrepreneurship. Our intention is to create a shared vision for this tremendous potential in Swiss innovation which will lead to the development of methods for best practices.

Workshop 1 -- EDUCATION: Is a close collaboration between technical schools and business/management schools a requirement for entrepreneurial success, and if so, what is the form that this collaboration should take ? What are the differences between universities and universities of applied sciences and management schools with respect to these collaborations? What type of entrepreneurship education platforms can be established at each institution to help students develop an innovation mindset?

Workshop 2 -- INSTITUTIONAL: What obstacles to innovation are present from the perspectives of the different agents engaged in the innovation process at different institutions, and can top-down measures at the institutions be identified to improve the situation?

Workshop 3 -- INDUSTRY: What is the value proposition for universities and motivation for students to invest in innovation and entrepreneurial training, from the perspective of future prospects in companies and startups?
