International Universities Fostering Technological and Societal Innovation through Education, Start-up Development and Co-creation
Many Ecosystems, Universities, Incubators and Co-Creation Partners as one international network located in worldwide Startup hotspots, eBridge Alliance commits to developing a sustainable framework through which continuous technological and societal innovation delivered by entrepreneurs, start-ups, co-creation partners and projects becomes possible.
International Burch University became eBridge Alliance Partner
International Burch University, represented by professor Malcolm Duerod, became the eBridge Alliance Partner along with: Athens University of Business and Economics, California Polytechnic University, Denmark Technical University, Edinburgh Napier University, FH Campus Wien, German Center for Robotics- DKR, La Trobe University, Munich University of Applied Sciences and Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship, Ryerson University, St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, Tampere University of Applied Sciences, University of Applied Management, and University of Aveiro.
In this framework, universities, research institutes, industry partners, start-ups, political organizations, capital providers and civil societies work together on global challenges based on the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDG).
The projects of 2020 have a focus on individuals and groups well-being. Well-being is a broad topic that goes beyond the traditional understanding of the word health. As such it includes both physical, mental, and social vitality of an individual or a group and extends from private to the public sphere, including one’s workplace. Ideas in the field of food and nutrition are just as welcome, as they support and help preserve the overall well-being of citizens in rapidly developing and changing societies.
Pre-existing start-ups working on various solutions currently incubated or connected to their home university are welcome to use this opportunity to explore new possibilities in other markets and ecosystems. The host incubator provides support by coaching and mentoring, offers its facilities and stakeholder’ events, and gives access to ecosystem partners for co-creation purposes.
“This is an amazing opportunity for students of IBU to get international exposure and feedback on their ideas and access to a world class group of mentors and advisors. At the end of the program startup teams will pitch in front of well know corporate partners and investors from Munich and the EU.”,said Professor Duerod for the conclusion.
