E-Lab partners explore structure and sustainability in a pan-European network of creative academic innovation-centres.
The University of Grenoble in southern France hosted this year’s first meeting of partners involved in E-Labs, or Starter Labs, on 12-13 March 2018. The E-labs network brings together creative centres promoting entrepreneurship and innovation.
The EIT Health Network of Starter Labs (also known as E-labs) is a pan-European network of creative academic centres providing real-life challenges and experiences to students, researchers and professionals. The vision is to transform the academic landscape of education towards increased entrepreneurial competence and engagement by connecting, educating and empowering the innovators of tomorrow. The gathering took place at “Pepite oZer”, the name of Grenoble E-Lab, at Grenoble Alpes University, in the open space where student entrepreneurs develop their projects and gain support for their ideas.
The meeting involved active workshops focusing on sustainability, scalability and how to increase collaborations / knowledge transfers between the partners. Each E-lab contributed to the 2019 proposal with its planned activities and with building joined activities for all E-Labs.
E-Labs will meet again online on 18 June 2018, and in Barcelona on 1-2 October 2018, in order to keep sharing their best practises but also to anticipate reports for the year, and to keep planning for the future of the network.
