“eTime” Master Class: Introduction to a train-the-trainer program to realize an entrepreneurial eco-system in a triple helix environment
ORGANIZER: Klaus Sailer, Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Munich University of Applied Sciences and CEO of the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship (SCE), Germany
MAIN CONTENTS: The triple helix approach requires new ways of thinking, new collaboration structures and new holistic processes in its implementation. This requires masterminds, pioneers and designers who can motivate, convince and train as many actors as possible to use the possibilities of a triple helix society. The focus here is on entrepreneurial, responsible approaches that use the innovative power of the players involved to promote social change through collaboration in order to create a livable, ecologically sustainable and economically successful future.
eTime is a master-class that shows educators, decision-makers and coaches from science, business and politics principles, competencies and the necessary mindset of entrepreneurship actors. In parallel, concepts, methods and tools from the field of societal entrepreneurship are presented and applied. In practical exercises, the participants learn to pass on these insights to students, employees and partners.

Palazzo Re Enzo is located in the heart of Medieval Bologna, in the historical atmosphere of Piazza Maggiore and has always been the hub of the city’s economic and social activities. It was built between 1244 and 1246 as an extension of the other municipal buildings and just three years later, it became the ‘residence’ of the King Enzo of Sardinia, son of Emperor Frederick II, who lived in the building for twenty-three years until his death in 1272.
