Colloquium focus 

The new generation of life sciences graduates are expected to show creativity, resilience, proactiveness and risk-taking while being able to recognise business opportunities: in short to exhibit entrepreneurship competencies. Whereas traditionally entrepreneurship education was the domain of business schools to stimulate new venture creation, entrepreneurship education has become more and more a university wide approach, focussing on the development of an entrepreneurial mind-set and entrepreneurial competence among staff and hence the students. The entrepreneurial development of our students is increasingly dependent on the entrepreneurial experience gained throughout the whole life science curriculum. The goal of this Colloquium is to share views, experiences and practises on how to stimulate the nascent entrepreneurship competencies in curricular as well as extra-curricular activities in the Life sciences. 

Colloquium themes The aim of the ICA-EDU Colloquium 2019 is centred on three theme questions: 

  • What do I see as my challenge in stimulating nascent entrepreneurial skills? 
  • What entrepreneurial learning outcomes do I want to achieve? 
  • What are (cutting edge) entrepreneurial learning activities and how do I assess them?

  • Overview of exemplary learning outcomes that can be achieved by life sciences students through entrepreneurship education
