Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

We kick off the Global Entrepreneurship Week for researchers with two inspiring keynotes followed by a Q&A. Looking at this time of economic transformation, but also volatility and uncertainty, the question is what the role of entrepreneurship and innovation is. And this morning we will look at how applied research can contribute to insights into the role that innovative, sustainable and inclusive entrepreneurship can play in times of economic transformation.

During this online keynote, Kate Raworth will share her vision of driving a shift from entrepreneurship where profit and quick wins are central, and the steps needed to create local and global ecosystems that support business models that act in harmony with a collective. target. And in particular: how can research and education in the field of entrepreneurship help us in this?

Entrepreneurship research in the GEW

During the Global Entrepreneurship Week, we devote a lot of attention to applied research at AUAS.

But also opportunities to participate now or in the future.
