Project Details


Impact Entrepreneurship and Sustainability (IE&S) is a new, university-wide training program, offering students at Aalborg University to work on developing sustainable business models for ideas, scientific discoveries, and/or technologies with the potential for positive social and environmental impact. We envision the course to be open to all Master level students from across all disciplines, from the sciences and engineering to medicine, the social sciences, and the arts. Based on a combination of lectures, discussion of real cases supervised group work, mentoring, and coaching, the course will offer students to work across interdisciplinary teams to solve turn real-world social and environmental challenges into opportunities for fair profits and, in the process, learn to apply the main tools, the main governing ideas, and methods that are the background of the design of sustainable business models.
The project is funded by "Fonden for Entreprenørskab".
