Simonyi Summer Social Entrepreneurship Program started in this week

Students from the Ohio University, The College of Wooster and the University of Botswana arrived 6th July. In this year 41 students participate in the Simonyi Summer Social Entrepreneurship Program and work on 9 different projects which focus on value creation in the regional socio-economic environment of the University of Pecs. Participants have the opportunity to provide professional support to social entrepreneurship initiatives that can have real social impact in the region. During the Program culturally and professionally diverse student groups cooperate with each other in a practice oriented, experiential learning context that focuses on real-life projects and project owners in the region. Professional mentors (Jeffrey Anderson, Luke Pittaway, Peter Abramo, Zsolt Bedő) assist the teams in imbedding the projects.
