'Entrepreneurship' meeting with academics in Turkey
The Technology Transfer Office and the Creative Economy Center, which started their studies under the leadership of Izmir University of Economics (IUE) Faculty of Business and cooperated with Bristol Business School in England, prepared a special project, consisting of 3 stages, specifically for the British Council Newton Fund call. In the first leg of the project, which aims to strengthen the research, training and institutional mechanisms in this field in order to support entrepreneurship activities in our region, a "Creativity in Research" workshop was held between September 28 and October 2.
CREATIVITY IN RESEARCH
More than 30 academics from Izmir University of Economics and several universities in Turkey attended the "Creativity in Research" workshop where researchers in Bristol Business School shared their experiences. Academics were told about the creative and innovative methods that they can use in their research. Discussions were held on many subjects, from puppets to collage, from photography to storytelling, along with examples of practices. At the end of the workshop, the participants also worked on how to answer their research questions using these methods.
“IT WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL”
Prof. Burcu Güneri Çangarlı, Dean of IUE Faculty of Business and Project Coordinator, said, “Our project, which aims to bring together academics from different regions of Turkey, is supported by the British Council Newton Fund. We aimed to strengthen the role of our university in the entrepreneurship ecosystem that we have created thanks to the education and research activities we carry out in the field of entrepreneurship. The first event of our project was extremely successful. We benefited from the experiences of Bristol Business School researchers and helped academics to gain different perspectives. The next step of the project will be on the development of entrepreneurship education.”
