"Training creative and responsible men and women." This objective is one of the first principles of the Charter of ESA. Though ESA's policy in terms of entrepreneurship is recent, our teaching staff and students have been involved in entrepreneurship issues for many years, through innovation competitions, business start-ups and more.
Developing students' entrepreneurial spirit
ESA has developed incentive and support initiatives to promote entrepreneurship among students:
The initiative laboratory
Open since March 2008, the initiative laboratory is an amazing place where students are encouraged to develop their creative and entrepreneurial talents. Here they can work on any projects requiring analytical or experimental support.
The innovation competitions and business start-up competitions at ESA
These competitions educate and encourage students to take an innovative idea and develop it into a full-fledged project or business start-up plan.
