From 19th to 23rd September 2016, Dimitrije Milojević and Marina Nikolić attended a meeting within Tempus project "Fostering students' entrepreneurship and open innovation and university-industry collaboration - IDEA LAB". During the two days of the project meeting, partners discussed sustainability and promotion of student IDEA LABs, which were created during this project at HEIs in Podgorica, Zenica, Banja Luka, Zrenjanin, Subotica and Novi Sad.
The possibilities of promotion were presented to students, teachers, non-teaching staff, but also to the local community and general public. Presentation on the possibilities of promotion and marketing without a budget was made by colleagues from UCEEM-NSZ, where they highlighted new opportunities for everyone actively involved in this project - students, professors, and entrepreneurs involved in the educational process.
During a visit to Novi Sad, representatives of UCEEM-NSZ participated in the 1st Regional "IDEA LAB Conference" - Conference on Entrepreneurship and Open Innovation in University – Industry Collaboration, as part of a larger 7th international conference "Mass Customization and Personalization in Central Europe" (MCP-CE Conference). With the paper titled "Education for entrepreneurship through practical work at all educational levels", they contributed to the objectives of the conference, and also presented all the possibilities for learning through practical work that Education Group Zrinski has been nurturing for years at all levels of education.
Marina Nikolić also took an active part in the round table organized in the framework of the conference, titled "Making Entrepreneurs and the Campus", where they, together with colleagues from Bulgaria, Croatia and Serbia, discussed the possibilities for starting the student enterprises, development of start-ups at HEIs and the future of entrepreneurship in the non-economic HEIs. The conclusion of the round table was short but clear: "When there's will, there's always a way!".
