INVENTHEI envisions that by 2025 a critical mass of highly educated young entrepreneurs and innovators will be trained by the participating higher education institutions (HEIs), contributing to the emergence of highly dynamic innovation districts and favouring the setup or inshore ofknowledge-intensive companies on cutting edge technologies, value added products and services, and innovative business models. Innovation districts also have an enhanced capacity to provide students with new ideas, skills and entrepreneurial talent. Students are the new generations of professionals, but they can also be trained and encouraged to become innovators and entrepreneurs, contributing to the creation of jobs and economic growth.
INVENTHEI builds on existing practices and infrastructures to enhance the regional innovation ecosystems and promote innovation-driven research. One of the objectives is to setup an HEIdriven European Network of Innovation districts. Together, the consortium will build on existing experience and will explore synergies with research and innovation activities to nurture and foster an innovation and entrepreneurial culture in the participating universities.
INVENTHEI will implement an IVAP built around 3 dimensions connected to the EIT pillars:
– Learning and Mentoring programmes, focused on training, mentoring and engagement of students and staff (education pillar).
– Learning and Teaching structures, focused on providing testbeds and innovation driven research (innovation pillar).
– Learning and Collaboration, focused on programs for collaboration and exchange between industry, research and academia (business pillar).
