Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Goals and objectives:

Our TIG wants to build a community of educators and researchers in entrepreneurship and innovation. We collaborate in the areas of entrepreneurship education, blended online learning, entrepreneurship research, and student engagement.

The current objective is to organize a Blended intensive programme (BIP) where most of the Stars EU partners will be included. We will use the TOPSIM Startup simulation game as a primary tool for education. BIP is planned for the first half of 2023.

Leader: Dalibor Šimek – Silesian University in Opava, (CZ)
Co-leader: Diederich Bakker, Hanze University of Applied Sciences, (NL)

Information about our TIG including the goals and objectives

This newly founded TIG met in November 2022 for the first time and is only starting to organise itself. Even though „Living Spaces“ was initiated from the fields of civil engineering and architecture, we intend to be as open as possible regarding academic fields and disciplines, and invite all teachers and researchers, who are involved in addressing issues of how and where people live, how they organise their mobility, leisure time, etc. The following picture gives an overview on who could join.
