Project funding for Higher education
This autumn’s application round is now open. Deadline for applications is 17 September 2020 (at 11:59 pm).
The Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship supports relevant, strategic and developing projects at all Higher educational institutions (universities, university colleges, business academies, maritime educations and art colleges) with a focus on entrepreneurship, innovation and enterprise.
Focus areas Autumn 2020
With this tender the Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship supports the development of new strategic frames and specific entrepreneurship strategies that aim to embed and scale educational programmes, activities and interventions for teachers and students across the educational institution. The tender is open to all higher educations (universities, university colleges, business academies, maritime educations and art colleges).
Funding can be sought for starting the development of a new entrepreneurship strategy for the institution’s work with entrepreneurship, for further developing and scaling minor strategies, for instance from one area into large strategic frames across the institution, or for upscaling entrepreneurship interventions with a clear integration of, and focus on, entrepreneurship education. The aim is that the work to develop and implement the new strategic frames must be ambitious (embedded at the top level of the institution), and that the institution must have a fundamental wish to embed, strengthen and correlate its E&I efforts (Entrepreneurship and Innovation) across the institution. The Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship wishes to support ambitious development plans and ensure that the work with entrepreneurship takes place across the institution and is embedded at the managing level. The wish is for the entrepreneurship strategies to set a clear goal for entrepreneurship – including especially those related to education.
This tender is different from earlier tenders, where the Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship supported for instance the development of new educational courses, competence development, and the integration of professional tools and methods for teaching e.g. diverse entrepreneurship. This tender focuses on developing a deep and innovative entrepreneurship strategy that will help ensure the integration, embedding, quality and correlation of the entrepreneurship education and the co-curricular entrepreneurship activities at the institution. The tender also has a focus on scaling interventions and creating value and, not least, ensuring the managerial support and embedding.
Universities can apply for a max. funding amount of DKK 400,000 for the development of new strategic frames and specific entrepreneurship strategies.
Other higher educations
Other higher educations (university colleges, business academies, maritime educations and art colleges) can apply for a max. funding amount of DKK 300,000 for the development of new strategic frames and specific entrepreneurship strategies.
