After three editions of the Special Session "Entrepreneurship in Engineering Education (EiEE)" at the last ICL/IGIP conferences – 2016 in Belfast, 2017 in Budapest and 2018 in Kos – the IGIP Executive Committee decided to support the formation of this new working group.

The aims of the IGIP working group EiEE are to promote the discussion of goals and experiences to reinforce entrepreneurial education at engineering educational institutions (higher colleges for engineering, universities of technology, universities of applied sciences) and to establish an international network with the specific focus on entrepreneurship education for engineers.

The EiEE working group aims to provide a platform to discuss the following questions:

  • What are the specifics in entrepreneurship for the educational systems of engineers?
  • Which content should be taught? Which teaching/learning methods should be applied?
  • What do all the initiatives of the EC, etc… mean for the education of engineers?
  • Which experiences can be shared within the IGIP community?
  • Which role can and/or should IGIP perform?

Topics of Interest:

  • educational goals
  • educational contents & approaches
  • best-practice examples
  • national, european & international initiatives and projects
  • funding programs in the fields of entrepreneurship & innovation management for engineers
  • challenges for the teacher's role in Entrepreneurship Education (What makes a good entrepreneurial teacher?)
