Cambridge to host the 2012 European Entrepreneurship Colloquium


The entrepreneurial equivalent of the Olympics for entrepreneurship educators

Academic experts from across Europe and the world will be at Cambridge Judge Business School in July for the European Entrepreneurship Colloquium (EEC) 2012 programme.

The European Entrepreneurship Colloquium (EEC) is an intensive, one-week residential programme running from 8 to 14 July and is specifically designed for European professors and educators who are seeking to integrate more effective, appropriate and interactive approaches, as well as practical skills in teaching entrepreneurship.

The EEC 2012 is managed by the European Forum for Entrepreneurship Research (EFER) and delivered in partnership with the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) at Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge.

Academic contributors include Professor Christoph Loch, Director of Cambridge Judge Business School; Dr Shai Vyakarnam, Director of the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning and Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, Vice Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.

Sir Leszek Borysiewicz commented:

We are delighted to be hosting the prestigious European Entrepreneurship Colloquium this year at the University of Cambridge. It represents a great opportunity to showcase the innovation happening here in Cambridge and how we foster enterprise. It will also be a chance to engage with colleagues from across Europe to further our contribution to Entrepreneurship Education.”

EEC 2012 is focussing the European dimensions of entrepreneurship, interactive entrepreneurial learning approaches and case methods; and exposure to ‘real world’ entrepreneurship practices. There will be a special emphasis on ‘Innovation and Entrepreneurship across the University’ in several sessions of the programme, highlighting the ‘Spin-off Phenomenon’, and ‘Case Studies of New Europe Champions’.

EEC 2012 is now open for applications from professors and educators in relevant fields, with an application deadline of 30 April 2012.
