“Supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in and through higher education”
Join us at the HEInnovate event in Bucharest to share your experience and learn from others.
The European Commission, in partnership with the OECD and the Romanian Ministry of National Education are organizing the HEInnovate conference on “Supporting Innovation and Entrepreneurship in and through Higher Education”. The event takes place in Bucharest on 20-21 June 2019 and is organized within the Romanian EU Presidency framework.
Over two days, the event will bring together around 200 participants from all over Europe with an emphasis on representatives and decision makers from higher education institutions, intermediary organisations and National, regional or public authorities.
In addition to the launch of the HEInnovate country report for Romania, the event will feature plenary sessions with high-level speakers and parallel, interactive working sessions, all around the topic of innovative and entrepreneurial higher education system and institutions.
It will be a unique opportunity to share and discuss experiences, to compare examples of good practice, to network and to learn from each other. HEInnovate is a guiding framework to help higher education institutions and systems to develop their entrepreneurial and innovative potential. It supports policy makers and stakeholders to identify actions that stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation, but also to identify and remove barriers at the institutional level and in the respective national higher education systems.
The event is hosted by the Politechnica University of Bucharest, an educational institution that has the mission to bring together education, training and scientific research. The role of this intersection is to increase knowledge and innovation, two key concepts of a knowledge-based economy and society.
