Project: Practice Future - an Open Innovation Local Business and Students Network

Practice Future - an Open Innovation Local Business and Students Network

Lead Partner: Finnmark University College, Norway

Small enterprises in the Barents Region and students and faculty staff from five universities are cooperating in an Open Innovation project.

The aim is twofold: 1) develop practically relevant business ideas and business models for the case companies in question and facilitating companies’ access to markets abroad; 2) develop and implement an internationally applicable tool of entrepreneurship education to (non-business) students. Over the entire project, a network of some 250 students from Russia, Finland and Norway will participate, as well as at least twelve firms from partners’ countries. Additionally, some 20-30 firms are supposed to be involved indirectly as potential partners of the case companies.
