Innovative Programmes of Student-Business-Collaborations in Green Venturing

The project "ScaleUp4Sustainability (S4S)“ combines two important demands called by European policy: 1) To address green entrepreneurship in higher education as an important element in the modernization of Europe’s higher education systems, and 2) to strengthen Europe’s capacity to innovate by introducing new forms of student-business interaction in developing, implementing and scaling-up eco-innovations and starting new green businesses.

The project will focus on the collaboration of student teams and business partners in green venturing. These forms of collaborative green venturing are embedded in Bachelor and Master programmes of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and are organized and coached by professors and teaching staff. Collaborative green venturing constitutes an innovative form of multidisciplinary, real problem-based interactive learning and entrepreneurship education.

The objectives of the project are:

  1. to evaluate the outputs and outcomes of innovative, multidisciplinary approaches of student-business collaboration in green venturing and to identify key factors that make the flow and co-creation of sustainable entrepreneurial knowledge and skills more effective,
  2. to develop new, innovative approaches and tools to teaching and learning sustainable entrepreneurship and collaborative green venturing,
  3. to scale up and diffuse innovative approaches collaborative green venturing by broadening these to more universities, departments and teaching programmes and by involving more students with different disciplinary backgrounds,
  4. to strengthen Europe’s capacity to innovate by introducing new forms of student-business collaboration in developing and implementing eco-innovations and starting new green businesses,
  5. to facilitate and boost the transnational exchange of knowledge and experiences with university-business collaboration in green venturing, and,
  6. to disseminate good practices and knowledge in university-related green venturing across Europe.
