Background and summary
EEUK Enterprise Exchange events are one day best practice style mini conferences where educators and practitioners come together to share and exchange good practice and expertise related to enterprise and entrepreneurship education. This event will be held in Canterbury, a short journey on the high-speed train from London, at the University of Kent campus. This conference aimed to impart a European perspective on enterprise and entrepreneurship education: curricular; co-curricular; and extra-curricular, within universities.
The day included insights from guest speakers about their experiences and approaches while supporting students and local businesses to be more enterprising and entrepreneurial through their university programs. There was a Q&A session with the guest speakers followed by a roundtable discussion. The focus throughout the event was on sharing best practice with other likeminded educators and to understand the synergies that exist across European institutions.
