September, 2011: ICGEE & INSPIRE host "Turning Your Bright Ideas into Revenue & Jobs" Graduate Trainin
One of the key objectives of the ICGEE GREP programme is to train engineering graduates that will move into non-academic and perhaps non-research career paths by fostering an international peer network amongst the next generation of Irish engineering leaders". In implementing this objective, ICGEE seeks to encourage student participation at workshops and foster collaborations within and external to the consortium member networks. With ICGEE and INSPIRE having similar objectives to enhance graduate education a decision was made to co-organize the graduate Business & Innovation training by both consortia.
The workshop took place from September 21-22, 2011 at Irish Management Institute in Dublin, with the theme "Turning Your Bright Ideas into Revenue & Jobs". More than 50 graduate students participated at event during which national and international experts shared their knowledge on Business, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Some of the lecturers and corresponding themes presented at the workshop were:
- Prof Robert Dunn (University of Notre Dame) - "Strengthening Ireland through Entrepreneurship and Intrepreneurship"
- Prof Roger Whatmore (Tyndall National Institute) - "The Research Institute and Business Innovation"
- Prof Peter Kelly (Aalto University, Helsinki) - "Creativity Inspired Innovation"
- Prof Eoin O'Neill (Trinity College Dublin) - "The (Researcher's) Entrepreneur's Questions about Money"
- Dr. Lorraine Byrne (Hewlett Packard) - "The Need for Entrepreneurship in the Multinational Sector"
