Brussels, 16 Jan 2003
The Innova Programme is organising a congress entitled 'Enterprise creation, innovation culture and change in the university', to take place on 13 and 14 March in Barcelona.
The two day event aims to raise awareness at Spanish universities of the need to promote an entrepreneurial spirit and facilitate the creation of spin-offs. At the same time, it aims to show the results achieved in this area on a national and international level in recent years, and to demonstrate the different methods that have been successful in different environments.
Speakers will discuss a variety of complimentary issues such as the infrastructure and financing necessary for the creation of businesses in a regional network, the role of training and models for the participation of universities in spin-offs.
The second day will include workshops and roundtables, which will resolve the most significant issues raised by the congress.
Potential participants are those interested in the creation of businesses and the dissemination of the innovation culture. The conference may also be of interest to economic promotion bodies.
