Project Description

On behalf of the University of Koblenz - Landau, under the project acronym AccEnt, which stands for "Accelerating Entrepreneurship", ZIFET

ZIFET has successfully participated in an initiative of the German Ministry of Economic Affairs, on the subject "EXIST- Entrepreneurial Culture, The Entrepreneurial University".

The University of Koblenz - Landau is the only university in its state of Rhineland-Palatinate and one of 22 universities throughout Germany that holds the title of "Entrepreneurial University".

With the additional research and transfer resources available through AccEnt, the already excellent existing infrastructure supporting the creation of start-up companies will be further developed and enhanced at both university campuses in Koblenz and Landau.

The focus is on the development of innovation laboratories that encourage students of the teaching profession to foster entrepreneurial thinking and practices, as well as the establishment of an internationally focused "Virtual Entrepreneurship Academy".
