ESRC Festival of Social Science Funding

The Management School is delighted to announce that Peter Rodgers and Tim Vorley, under the auspices of the Centre for Regional Economic and Enterprise Development (CREED), have successfully gained funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for a proposed entrepreneurship education taster day in the ESRC’s Festival of Social Sciences week between 29th October and 5th November 2011.

The event, ‘Who wants to be an Entrepreneur?’ will bring together around 50 year 11 students from about 10 local Sheffield schools in a hands-on event aimed at raising awareness of entrepreneurship. The day aims to expose students to the opportunities and challenges of entrepreneurship in a supportive environment couched in terms of both academic and practitioner perspectives. Business Education South Yorkshire (BESY), whose remit is to foster links between schools and businesses and enhance the delivery of business education across South Yorkshire have happily agreed to work in collaboration on this event.

Congratulations to Tim and Peter on their success.
