The strengths of the project stem from the defined academic scope (informatics, digital transformation) and the large diversity since university environments, industrial ecosystems and private organizations. InnoChange will develop and improve the entrepreneurial education curriculum and associated teacher training at partner HEIs, soak up and nurture innovation from all corners of student, faculty, and research activities at university by introducing new innovation model. Furthermore, will provide effective support to deserving early-stage innovation projects and build a pragmatic, yet comprehensive network of multi-faceted industry partnerships and enable support structures for entrepreneurship communities at HEIs through mutual learning.
