Event description

Description

The Fribourg National Conference on Stimulating Student Innovation


The National Conference on Stimulating Student Innovation meets in bilingual Fribourg. This high-level workshop compares and contrasts Swiss experiences and ecosystems around innovation support and entrepreneurship for cantonal universities and universities of applied sciences, providing insights into methods for encouraging an innovation culture for students interested in intra- and entrepreneurship, and helping you build a network of innovation experts interested in developing best practices for student support.


Our common challenge

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

Our common plan

Support an innovation culture and student entrepreneurship at Swiss cantonal Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences and reach out to young people that wish to study and work in an entrepreneurial environment.


Keynote Speakers

Our international speakers on student innovation culture and entrepreneurship

Patricia G. Greene, Professor of Entrepreneurship at Babson College (Boston, USA) / Paul T. Babson Chair in Entrepreneurial Studies

Tine Van Lommel, Innovation Manager KU Leuven R&D and Spinoffs


Workshop main topic

Swiss universities offer a variety of educational and support structures to assist start-up activities. However, many challenges remain, and this workshop will focus on answering the following questions:

- How to market such programs internally (toward the university staff, toward students and externally (toward partners, politics)?

- How to encourage students to pursue their own ideas?

- How to demonstrate the value of engaging resources to promote student innovation?

- How to promote innovation as part of the vision within the school’s objectives?

- How can women/men or other diverse groups be specifically supported?

- How universities can specifically promote innovation and entrepreneurship from women?
