About Innovation & Entrepreneurship

Innovation and Entrepreneurship are paired concepts. Innovation involves conceptualizing and designing new ways of developing and producing goods/services while promoting entrepreneurship in higher education institutions. This adds new dimension to convert new ideas into deliverables to the society.

There is a widespread agreement that innovation is a primary driver of long term economic growth and prosperity. Long term prosperity stays in countries where there is a high degree of innovative content and where innovation, manufacturing and end-user demand are strongly integrated.

Education plays a central role in the development of skills aimed at shaping an entrepreneurial society. In order to transform a business idea into a successful company, it is necessary to combine creativity and innovation with a robust business education.

Entrepreneurship is a crucial engine for innovation, competitiveness, job creation and economic growth. It also promotes the transformation of innovative ideas into successful business in high-tech sectors and can unlock the personal potential of individuals as well.
