MUNICH - July 17, 2013 - PRLog -- Coneeect is an international network of universities whose members have a shared goal of establishing and improving the teaching of entrepreneurship in Europe. To meet this objective, Coneeect offers an interactive training program for academic entrepreneurship educators from all over Europe. In 2012, MUAS and its Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship (SCE) took over the lead of this EU project, which aims to advance entrepreneurial education in Europe, and runs the project jointly with four international universities and Project Management Jülich.

How will European universities teach entrepreneurial thinking and behaviour in future? What do students need in order to find innovative solutions to the challenges of tomorrow?

To answer these questions, the Coneeect network is holding a series of five-day workshops for entrepreneurship teachers in Aberdeen, Lisbon, Munich, Sofia and Tel Aviv under the slogan “Educating Entrepreneurship Educators”. The aim is to build on existing concepts and methods and create new educational formats to anchor the results sustainably in European entrepreneurship teaching.

During the first training week at MUAS, the morning sessions will be led by internationally renowned entrepreneurship experts who will look at theoretical approaches to understand entrepreneurship and best practice projects in various modules, including “the cultural contextualisation of entrepreneurship” and “creativity and innovation”. In the afternoons, program participants will work together with innovation experts from companies such as Google, BMG, Siemens and Allianz to try out innovative methods and concepts in “learning in practice” sessions, and give practical advice and academic assistance to start-ups.

The findings from the theoretical and practical training units will be incorporated into the collective design and development of new teaching formats, with the aim of sustainably embedding these in the teaching of entrepreneurial thought and action at European universities.

In advance of the first Coneeect training week, SCE CEO Klaus Sailer said: “We are looking forward to welcome lots of interesting international participants to the first training week at MUAS. It will be especially fascinating to see how participants master the challenges in unfamiliar surroundings, such as in nursery schools, and what new teaching formats emerge as a result.”

At the end of the first Coneeect training week on 26 July, a policy dialogue will be held on the topic of entrepreneurship education, with prominent panel speakers, including OECD director Sergio Arzeni, venture capitalist and SCE founder Falk F. Strascheg and Wolfgang Thiel, Europe expert at the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR).
