Funding of Educators
Offering courses in entrepreneurship to the 150.000 students in the Oresund region forms a challenge when it comes to attracting new qualified teachers. Therefore Oresund Entrepreneurship Academy offers a series of “teacher-packages” with financial means earmarked for the appointment of teachers at the 11 universities in the region.
Several times a year Oresund Entrepreneurship Academy awards funds to development of entrepreneurship courses. The funds can be applied for by anyone associated with one on the Oresund University member universities. In the application process the Academy offers help and advice with regard to both knowledge, contacts to new partners and practical matters. The projects must include collaboration with partners in both Denmark and Sweden and the projects are co-financed exclusively.
Oresund Entrepreneurship Academy supports the universities in the region in becoming world leading in the field of entrepreneurship education. The Academy supports development of new subjects and courses in the field of entrepreneurship at the member universities. The support involves among other things conceptualization and marketing of courses.
