The design and content of IO3 Entrepreneurship Teaching Toolkits were in the spotlight during the February monthly briefing meeting, as well as the exciting news on the 1st Alliance Meetings taking place in Halle and Szeged in the months of February and March.
The discussions initiated in the leadership of Prof. Bernd Ebersberger from the Management Center Innsbruck (MCI) helped outline a draft framework on how to design and implement the entrepreneurship courses at the individual universities. The proposal from the institution included creating 12-15 independent modules with the themes in the scope of entrepreneurship that could either be taught during a semester as one single course, or combined in a customized manner to be taught at summer schools. Idea competition bootcamps, introduction to regional ecosystems, characteristics and motivations of entrepreneurs, games and competitions are some of the module themes that will be sequenced under (i) Entrepreneurship course and (ii) Social entrepreneurship course. The example course layout suggested by the MCI was well received from the partners, with more details agreed to be discussed in the following partner meetings.
While the entrepreneurship course details are taking shape, regional alliances are being formed to start conversations in their respective contexts. Univations has led their first successful regional alliance meeting with a small group from Martin-Luther-University Halle, and USZ, has scheduled their first alliance meeting on the 9th of March with the attendance of representatives from local businesses and academics. The EEE project will gain further visibility through a presentation on entrepreneurship Dr. Szabolcs Prónay will give at a large youth event in Szeged scheduled on the 18th of March.
The next briefing meeting is agreed be held on the 20th of the next month.
