STARS EU Thematic Interest Group seminars are running

On December 6 the first of the series of seven (at least initially planned) seminars for the Thematic Interest Groups (TIG’s) in the STARS EU alliance started. Hosted by the Knowledge and Challenge Lab in the alliance in form of University West.

The seminars are planned as a one-hour seminar where each TIG can present itself and ongoing activities. But also what the TIG plan for the future in form of activities and different initiatives and projects. The seminars are open for all interested but not least for the other TIG’s and their participants to earn from each other and to be inspired. Each seminar has an Q&A in the end and also possibility for the TIG presenters to express needs or support to the TIG for their development.


First TIG out was Entreprenuership and Innovation presented by Dr Dalibor Simek (Assistant Professor at School of Business Administration in Karvina Department of Business Economics and Management, Silesian University in Opava, Czechia), lead for this TIG. The TIG has developed a Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) on a business simulation game that are to be implemented to the partners in 2023. And are currently looking into possible joint research topics in the field as well.

One innovative part of the first seminar was to use the Vevox app to to polls on questions during the seminar. Which results are now help both to TIG and the Challenge Lab on future development.

Next seminar is planned for January 10th, 2023 with link for the seminar and invitation through webpage and different forms of distribution within partners.
