For Higher Education & Research
There is a significant off balance between educating job creators (entrepreneurs) vs. employees, as well as balance between focus on research vs. innovation. New SME's and innovative startups create more than 2/3 or new jobs, attract international talent and big companies. Innovation is moving away from traditional closed model innovation models to startup ecosystems and innovation by startups. For these reasons, there is a significant gap between market needs and expectations vs. innovative entrepreneurship curriculum for entrepreneurial talent (the job creators) and methods for supporting open innovation by startups. vs. traditional technology transfer models, that are designed for closed corporate partnership innovation models.
