On September 4-6, the leading global three day forum for enterprise and entrepreneurship educators and practitioners – the 14th International Entrepreneurship Educators Conference (IEEC) was held at the Oxford Brookes University. IEEC is highly regarded for its participatory style with a wide range of interactive workshops, presentations and Pecha Kucha sessions as well as keynotes led by inspirational experts from across the world.
The National Technical University of Oil and Gas was represented by the Director of the Center for International Cooperation Artur Voronych. He said that the conference discussed the use of innovative practices and approaches to teaching students entrepreneurship, start-ups and their promotion. Knowledge and experience that influence policy and strategy related to entrepreneurship education, career development and employment can be obtained here, and for academics it is an opportunity to develop the necessary skills to maximize the impact of their research.
Lord Bilimoria CBE DL, Patron of Enterprise Educators UK and Chairman of Cobra Beer Partnership said,
“As Patron of Enterprise Educators UK. I am Delighted to speak at the annual international conference, at Oxford Brookes. Britain today is a country which champions entrepreneurship and our universities have a crucial role in championing entrepreneurship with our students as well as with the communities in which we are located.
I am so proud of the excellent work that Enterprise Educators UK does in bringing universities and entrepreneurship together to the benefit of our country’s economy and our competitiveness globally.”
The participants had an opportunity to learn, participate, connect, contribute and network with old and new colleagues and friends. Most importantly, at the end of the three days, they went home inspired to try new approaches, enabled and equipped to be more innovative and better able to maximise the impact of their work.
