As part of a government action plan, Denmark’s Ministry of Education has set up a panel for innovation and entrepreneurship in education.
Aware that tomorrow’s labor market will require new skills, the panel will be a forum for dialogue among the minister, the working world and educators. It will examine how education can promote creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, with a mission to insure Danish competitiveness in the global market.
A total of 16 leaders from education and the realm of business have been appointed to the panel, which will meet for two years. It will examine such questions as:
How can an innovative environment in education be created and supported?
How can education contribute to creating a culture which enhances entrepreneurship and self-employment?
How can education develop skills and competencies that are prerequisites for innovative work later in life, for example, as self-employed workers?
