RESEARCHERS at the University of Portsmouth have won £10,000 funding to improve the quality of entrepreneurship and enterprise teaching in universities.

Dr Zoe Dann, enterprise and employability co-ordinator at Portsmouth Business School, Dr Philip Ely, enterprise manager in Purple Door Careers, and Simon Brookes, enterprise and employability co-ordinator for Creative and Cultural Industries, will examine the leaders of enterprise teaching in British universities.

Dr Dann said: ‘I’m delighted we have won this funding.

‘Entrepreneurship is one of the government’s key agenda items and often misunderstood to be limited to starting businesses, which is only one way to show entrepreneurialism.

‘We are interested in staff building their knowledge and leadership competency in this area and make effective changes to benefit students.’
