  20. ITpreneurship: Kooperative Gründungsoffensive Hochschule –Wirtschaft im IT-Cluster Paderborn • ITpreneurshipsupportsstart-ups in the IT sector in cooperationwiththe regional IT industry • ITpreneuship links companies, potential founders of a newbusinessand Paderborn University andcreatessynergiestostrengthenthe regional IT-cluster

  21. Aims: • Conjoint finding of new business ideas and creation of a „pool of ideas“ • Development of actions to bring together companies and potential founders of a new business • Advancement of the ideas to the formation of a cooperative company

  22. The PACE (+) Program Entrepeneurship Skills Training Management Skills Training Scientific Career Skills Training Basic Soft Skill Training: communication, projectmanagement, etc. Successful completion of a PACE (+) track leads to an extra certificate along with the PhD.

  23. Facts & Figures • more than 15 applications per place to study • more than 80 PhD students with degrees from over 20 countries • 20% female PhD students • > 450 publications • > 90 alumni • duration: < 40 months (average)

  24. Further Activities • Joint transferable skill program with other NRW-Graduate Schools (Münster, Essen) • Representing Paderborn University in the Council of Doctoral Education of the European University Association (EUA)

  25. Further Activities • Participating in the DOC CAREERS Project I and II of the EUA DOC-CAREERS II will look uniquely at how universities work with their regional partners in doctoral education across Europe.  Input for the Tempus-Project ProTec-WBC

  40. What our students say “The opportunity for cooperation with industry was the main reason for me to do my PhD in Paderborn. When you’re working for a company, solving a concrete business problem for them, you are not just trying out an idea. Your research has to be viable. It has to lead to the solution of an actual business issue. This is what really made my research interesting.” -- Jens Peter Kempkes
