8 June 2019
17:15—18:45

Collaboration between higher education institutions and business community is key to successful innovations in the economy and development of social sector and youth technological entrepreneurship in particular. The world has longstanding experience of commercializing innovations and introducing them into the market. By building strategic partnerships with institutions of higher education, business community is supporting a range of activities starting with R&D to implementation of technologies in practice. Support for youth technological entrepreneurship allows large businesses to both mitigate risks of technological developments and to attract talented young entrepreneurs. What place does youth technology entrepreneurship occupy in the development of the innovation economy? How is the ecosystem for supporting youth entrepreneurship shaped at the levels of the state, regions, municipalities and business communities? What are the approaches, programmes and mechanisms for encouraging youth entrepreneurship? What role does collaboration between higher education institutions and the business community plays in supporting and developing youth entrepreneurship?
