, https://www.oulu.fi/mindbusiness-en/  

The MindBusiness project (2017-2020) develops a new operational model to advance
practices for entrepreneurship thinking in higher education. Earlier projects have focused on
enhancing the development of business ideas and supporting startup
companies. However, the early phase of entrepreneurial thinking and higher education
student activation has been lacking support until now. This is the main aim of the MindBusiness
project. The core idea is to inspire students’ entrepreneurial awareness, supporting their
self-identification of their own potential and prompting their entrepreneurial capacity.

Main actions of the project are: 1) to establish an active cooperation between the University of Oulu,
the Oulu University of Applied Sciences, the entrepreneurs and other entrepreneurial education
stakeholders in the Oulu area for developing entrepreneurship education in the higher education sector,
2) to develope educational co-operation among the project partners in terms of curriculum and learning
environment development, and 3) to strengthen the role of entrepreneurial education in higher education
by forming and implementing a multidisciplinary course based on educational psychology using latest
technological affordances.
