The European University Association (EUA) and the University of Antwerp organised a focus group for university leaders from across Europe to discuss university strategies and approaches towards student entrepreneurship. The event were hosted by the University of Antwerp on 18 June 2020 in Antwerp, Belgium.

Universities are seeking ways to mobilise and cultivate the entrepreneurial spirit of their students. The topic is gaining importance with the emphasis on digital innovation and green transition in the priorities of the European Commission. EUA aims to support universities in developing strategies towards student entrepreneurship that help to achieve a more innovative and sustainable economy. It also seeks to promote dialogue between stakeholders at the system level in order to ensure that regulatory and funding frameworks empower universities to achieve their full potential.

The focus group, conducted in English,  was a one-day event built on presentations by EUA, the University of Antwerp, as well as open discussions between all participants.
