Seeking the Entrepreneurial University of the Year

18 04 2008

This week the search for the Times Higher Award for the Entrepreneurial University of the Year begins in earnest with the inclusion of an Awards supplement in the current issue. The NCGE is sponsoring this new Award, announced last month, as part of the fourth annual Times Higher Education Awards.  The Award will recognise institutions that have embedded innovation and entrepreneurial activity into the fabric of their institution to the extent that their environment and culture not only fosters enterprising thinking amongst all members of its community but also delivers significant entrepreneurial impact at regional, national and international levels.

The criteria for the Award will focus on four main areas: Institutional Environment, Student Engagement, Innovative and Entrepreneurial Staff, and Entrepreneurial Impact.  Entrants should identify their principal achievements between 1 July 2007 – 12 June 2008, and summarise in no more than 500 words what they were trying to achieve, how they set about achieving it and how and if their goals were met. Shortlisted candidates will be given the opportunity to explain why they deserve this prize to an editorial fact-finding team, which will visit their institution on behalf of the judges. 

All entries must be submitted using the online application form on The Times Higher website.  The deadline for entries is 12 June.
