Boosting Innovation and Entrepreneurship through European Universities

Project Details


One of the major obstacles to boosting innovation and
entrepreneurship in the EU is the Higher Education system, which
is considered the key knowledge engine of Europe. This system is
still fragmented, and requires a deep process of modernisation and
co-creation with external players in order to address increasing intra-
EU innovation divide. Both the interactions within higher education
institutions (HEIs) and external stakeholders play a pivotal role in this
effort by pooling competences and resources within local, regional,
and European knowledge ecosystems.
