11.00-11.30: Sharing Best Practices: O2LAB by HAS

HAS Hogeschool in Den Bosch knows a long tradition of providing entrepreneurial education. A lot of farmers and gardeners (children) will most likely become an entrepreneur, willing or not. Originating from this entrepreneurial 'DNA' 15 years ago, a 'Top Class Entrepreneurship' program was developed, where students from all education programs within the HAS (but also other HBO's) had the opportunity to graduate whilst bringing their NEW business idea into practice.

Top Class Entrepreneurship, also known as Topklas Ondernemen, recently started its 3.0 version. This version is made possible with O2LAB. However, O2LAB is broader. Besides this, O2LAB gives further support to business success, social innovations, and the personal search for entrepreneurship of HAS students. On the latter theme 'personal search for entrepreneurship', a 20 week long 3rd-year minor course has been developed by the HAS and O2LAB called: 'Expedition Entrepreneurship in Agri, Food & Environment'.

More about O2LAB Hub Zuid: realized on the basis of budget obtained from the RVO.

1st phase: Research 'LEEFwereld: Learning needs and learning outcomes - finalized

2nd phase: Making sure our entrepreneurial education fits in with the current regional question through a collaboration of HAS + KW1C + Ondernemerslift + - pending


- Inventorize in which phase of development the entrepreneurial education is within the various education programs of the HAS and help these towards the next phase (based on need).

- Integrating entrepreneurial education towards one of adaptive and flexible education.

- Broadening the entrepreneurial education-lecturer pool and deepen their knowledge.

- Increase use of each other's expertise (MBO/HBO/MKB)

Other O2LABS in the Netherlands

- Erasmus Entrepreneurship Centre

- Hanze Hogeschool

Peter ter Horst, program director Entrepreneurial Education (lecturer) and Maarten van Eeuwijk, coordinator Top Class Entrepreneurship (hogeschool teacher), happily tell you more about this during their presentation in the Global Entrepreneurship Week on Thursday November 11, at 11 am physically at the TUe (or online)

11.30-13.00: Sharing Best Practices: Entrepreneurship Guide and Challenge Based Learning by TU/e

This workshop by Gert Guri and Prof. Isabelle Reymen will focus on:

a) How to integrate the education content on entrepreneurship and make it more accessible to teachers and students;

b) How to implement the challenge-based learning approach within the entrepreneurship perspective (CBL/E)

- 11.00-12.00: Sharing Best Practices: Entrepreneurship Guide Framework

We will initially share the TU/e experience on organizing the portfolio of entrepreneurship courses in a student development perspective. That will be followed by group discussions on enablers/barriers to move from shared online inventory to shared online repository of entrepreneurship courses.

- 12.00-13.00: Sharing Best Practices Challenge Based Learning and Entrepreneurship (CBL/E)

In the second part, Prof. Isabelle Reymen will share the TU/e Innovation Space experience on how to integrate the CBL/entrepreneurship education in the courses. Then the teamwork will concentrate on topics such as: Which are barriers/enablers to integrate CBL/E in the university courses?

13.00-14.00: Networking Lunch: Impact Stories from 2 Researchers (Offline)

14.00-15.00: Workshop Grant Proposal & Impact

This workshop focuses on grants for startup stimulation and impact.

- Startup grants. Are you interested in commercializing your research? Then there are several EU grants for startup stimulation which you can apply for. This session highlights several grants that coud be of interest to you.

- Impact. Impact is becoming increasingly important when writing a grant proposal. Researchers have to think in advance what the impact of their research is going to be. We will provide some tips and tricks how you can implement this in your grant proposal. In addition, we would like to exchange experiences on this topic in an open discussion.

14.00-15.00: Sharing Knowledge: Research Resilience in Creative Companies by BUAS (online)

With its research 'Versterking van Veerkracht van de Creatieve Industrie' Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas) wants to gain insights into which factors can influence growth of companies in the digital-creative industry and in what way. There are a lot of start-ups in this industry, however, most of whom stay small in size or cease to exist after a short period. Only a few companies are able to grow and gain a strong international market position. How does that happen and how can we help therein? There is a surprisingly big gap in organisational research on companies in this industry. From September onwards, this will change!

The digital-creative industry is an important industry for the Dutch economy that, because of COVID-19 among others, has seen a turbulent development. Examples in this industry are companies that engage in entertainment games or serious gaming. Others focus on providing creative services or products through Virtual and Augmented Reality.

'We are extremely happy with this research project, because, through this, we can profile ourselves as knowledge centre for companies within the digital-creative industry. The project not only has to result in more knowledge, but also function as a usable instrumentarium for leaders of companies in this industry' - BUas-experts; Igor Mayer, Frank Peters and Hans de Nie


The research project Versterking van Veerkracht in de Creatieve Industrie (VERVECI) starts in september and will last two years. The execution will be done under supervision of BUas-experts Igor Mayer, Hans de Nie and Frank Peters within the Lectoraat Serious Gaming an in collaboration with Tilburg University. The project is subsidized by the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) and Regieorgaan SIA. Various companies and organizations within the industry are partners of this project.

15.00-17.00: Workshop: How To Start an Academic Start-up?

Universities play a key role in innovation ecosystems as the engines of new technology and knowledge that may help us to address the grand challenges that face us and to create societal and economic impact through the development of new products and services.

The creation of Startups to translate ideas and technology from an academic proof of concept into a successful business is becoming a more popular route. But what does it take to create a Startup and where does it start? For most academics this is unfamiliar territory and outside of their comfort zone.

In this workshop we will take a closer look at the challenges involved in creating a Startup, the role of the academics in the process and what impact it may ultimately have on their research. In addition we will look at what support is available along the way to help you get started.
