1INNOENTRE Framework for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Support in Open Higher Education Pantelis M. Papadopoulos, Aarhus University
2The ProblemCreating entrepreneurial mindsets is a major need, but little is known about how to effectively integrate it into school curricula or not adequately taught beyond compulsory schoolingThere are efforts from different stakeholders to intensify E&I educationEntrepreneurship and innovation competitionsShared entrepreneurship coursesYoung entrepreneurship societiesWhat is, lacking, however, are purposeful collaborations and synergies that would allow them to build on what others already have done.
3Our Proposal (1/3)Identify and analyze the lessons learnt from previous efforts on E&I within the partners' networks (i.e., academic programs, research projects, contests, etc.).Adapt and scale existing efforts into a new systems framework for E&I in Open Higher Education that would take into account technical, organizational, pedagogical, legal, and economic aspects and that could be applied and tested in different contexts.Provide a software platform and along with gathered, modified, or produced learning material (e.g., open educational resources, case studies, webinar, etc.) on E&I that would materialize the different dimensions of the proposed framework.
4Our Proposal (2/3)Run two pilot rounds applying and testing the proposed systems framework in three sites inside the partnership.Create the opportunities for collaboration and networking among the different target groups, coming from the education, industry, and policy making fields.Create a reference point for future endeavors and be a gathering point for people who are interested in E&I.
