Presentation of iDEAlab project at the open door day event of the University of Zenica

On Thursday, 23 April 2015, the University of Zenica (UNZE) held the Open Door Day. It was an opportunity to host new potential students from the schools of Zenica-Doboj Canton and to present them the University. Approximately 150 high school graduates with their professors came and introduced themselves with faculties, study programs, laboratories and overall capacities of UNZE.

We considered this to be, also, an excellent opportunity to present iDEAlab project, its goals and results – since it is the project which aims, as its title states, to foster students‘ entrepreneurship and open innovation in university-industry collaboration, i.e. a project, which will bring many lasting benefits, not only to the current students, but even more to the future ones, who will, hopefully, at the beginning of their study, thanks to iDEAlab project, find the enhanced and improved relations between the university and its business environment.

Students were also told about new laboratories (iDEAlabs), which will be placed at four different organizational units (Faculty of metallurgy and materials, Faculty of mechanical engineering, Students’ Center and Faculty of health) and equipped with the basic and some advanced pieces of technical equipment - all for the reason of providing the possibilities for development of students’ (innovative) business ideas.
