What is it about
This intensive program is designed to provide doctoral students in the fields of entrepreneurship and management of innovation with a unique opportunity to enhance their knowledge, skills, and network within a dynamic and supportive academic environment.
The winter school brings together PhD students and senior researchers from Africa and Europe to exchange ideas and gain new insights on relevant topics in innovation and entrepreneurship research. It focuses on research that addresses sustainable development and society's Grand Challenges.
The overarching objective is to contribute to answering the following questions:
- How can innovation and entrepreneurship help in fostering sustainable development and mitigate society's Grand Challenges?
- How can collaborative research lead to new and better insights?
- How can researchers maximize their positive impact?
The week-long event includes keynote speeches from senior researchers and expert practitioners, opportunities for participants to present and discuss their research, and a chance to network and find collaborators across continents. There will also be workshops on publishing (meet the editors) and reviewing, short courses on innovative methodologies, and a study trip to an innovation park.
