| Program Focus |

Becoming increasingly popular, the merging of technology and entrepreneurship would be the main focus of the Regional Program on Technopreneurship. This twoday event would delve into examining technopreneurship’s current role in the TVET sector, and its potential as a novel but very effective concept that TVET can harness and adapt. As technopreneurship involves two different fields, the program will also try to deconstruct this emerging concept so as to clearly showcase how the fusion works, and the possible ways to incorporate and own the concept in the context of the unique environments of the delegates. Consecutively, the 7th Conference in Education in TVET (7th CiE-TVET 2017): “Translating TVET for Sustainable Entrepreneurial Workforce” will be a part of the Regional Program, and will tackle technological development, strategies and solutions in improving TVET towards elevating life in the communities, and will further broaden the learnings of the participants.
