The University of Lincoln is involved in a pioneering event which will connect enterprise, employability and education in Lincolnshire and the surrounding area to promote enterprising learning.


3Es in Lincoln: Energising Enterprise in Education is taking place on the Friday 18th May 2007 at Bishop Grosseteste College, Lincoln.


Lincolnshire Enterprise and the East Midlands Development Agency (EMDA) are funding the event that will bring together 100 professionals that play a part in education and employment in the Lincolnshire area.


Special guest speakers will include Paul Tulip (finalist in the BBC series The Apprentice), Professor Andrew Atherton (Pro-Vice Chancellor and Professor of Enterprise and Entrepreneurship at the University of Lincoln) and Luke Pittaway (Senior Lecturer in Enterprise at the University of Sheffield).


David Rae, Professor of Business and Enterprise at the University of Lincoln, said: “Enterprise, innovation and entrepreneurship are vital to the development of our regional economy, by creating employment and prosperity for individuals, communities and businesses.


“The 3Es event brings together speakers and facilitators with national and international reputations in enterprise and education to explore how enterprise is being developed in education, and how this can be applied in Lincolnshire and the surrounding area.


“This will enable educators to be at the forefront of developing enterprising learning in the curriculum and the workplace, as well as showing how connecting with businesses enhances students’ employability.”


The event will take place from 9.30am to 4.00pm. For more information or to book a place visit www.3eslincoln.co.uk or call event managers at Success Matrix on freephone 0800 289076.
