International Entrepreneurship Educators Conference (IEEC) 2008

Location:
Canary Wharf, London
Date(s):
8 September 2008 18:00 - 10 September 2008 16:00

For IEEC 2008, Enterprise Educators UK (EEUK, formerly UKSEC) and the National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurship will jointly deliver a rich international line-up of speakers, and an even greater opportunity for delegate participation through poster sessions and a live competition.

From  Russia to  Nepal ,  South Africa to  Estonia ,  China to the  USA , delegates have registered to hear representatives from different continents report on their work. There will be reports on the NCGE’s first International Entrepreneurship Educators Programme, views from  China and  Indonesia , the UK Launch of the China-UK Entrepreneurship Educators Network, and an update on British UK-China projects. 


Other IEEC speakers will present perspectives on Finnish Government backed ‘Entrepreneurial Universities‘, the ‘Kauffman Campus’ initiatives in the United States, and alternative approaches from Denmark, and IEEC 2008 will launch the Final Report of the NESTA/NCGE/CIHE Project ‘Developing Entrepreneurial Graduates’. 


IEEC 2008 will examine whether entrepreneurship education is ‘fit for the future’. It’s your chance to have your say and influence its development.   A table of workshops has now been posted on www.ieec.co.uk. These will be led by entrepreneurship educators from universities around the  UK as well as from Europe and  North America . 


An evening hosted by the NCGE’s Flying Start Global Entrepreneurs – many of the most talented rising stars of graduate entrepreneurship – will launch IEEC 2008 on the evening of Monday 8th September. Then over two full Conference days, Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th September, Enterprise Educators UK (EEUK) and the National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurship (NCGE) will deliver top international speakers, a Gala Dinner, delegate participation through workshops, posters, games, and a live competition. 


This year’s third annual International Entrepreneurship Educators Conference builds on the success of the conferences in  York in 2006 and  Cambridge in 2007. Both brought together many of the world’s leading educators and practitioners to share best practice and explore the latest developments in entrepreneurship education. 


Remember that members of EEUK are entitled to a substantial discount, and there are also some discounted conference places available for those currently on the International Entrepreneurship Educators Programme (IEEP).
