School of Computing hosts GETM3 Research Meeting on Global Entrepreneurship

Representatives from five countries in Europe and South Korea met in DIT Aungier Street to discuss GETM3, a global entrepreneurial management research project funded through Horizon 2020, the EU's largest research and innovation programme.

The delegates spent two days at DIT (January 16-17), hosted by Dr Deirdre Lillis of the DIT School of Computing, followed by two more days in Dublin City University, who are also partners on the project. Representatives from the following partner institutions were in attendance: DIT, Dublin City University (DCU) and the Irish Small and Medium Enterprises Association (ISME) in Ireland; University of Northumbria, UK; Warsaw University and Warsaw University of Technology, Poland; University of Ljubljana, Slovenia; Chonnam National University and Kyungpook National University, South Korea.

The concept of ‘entrepreneurial talent’ is one associated with the individual successful entrepreneurs and with organisation's economic performance and venture growth. Higher Education Institutions are encouraged to meet a range of individual and business needs in the area of entrepreneurial development and management. GETM3 - Global Entrepreneurial Talent Management 3 - focuses on individuals, universities and small businesses with the aim of creating a broader understanding of entrepreneurial learning.

This multi-sector, multi-disciplinary four-year project aims to enable a network of experienced and next generation researchers from across Europe and South Korea to enhance learning and knowledge exchange, enable researcher development, and to create on-going and international partnerships across academic institutions and with community partners. The research project is identifying and addressing the talent management issues of the future by working with, and in, three stakeholder groups: students and graduates (the future generations), employers (wealth-creators of the future), and higher education institutions (educators of the future). The overarching aim is to improve employability and future global talent management to support economic development.

The project is led by Professor Alison Pearce, University of Northumbria in Newcastle and has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement.
