The annual Entrepreneurship Education Conference brings
entrepreneurship education research and practice closer together.

The Entrepreneurship Education Conference targets researchers, teachers and practitioners interested in entrepreneurship education. A special objective of the event is to bring research and practice closer together. The two-day conference also provides an excellent opportunity for young researchers to practice writing and presenting conference papers.

The Entrepreneurship Education Conference includes inspiring keynotes, research presentations, project and case presentations as well as an action-based workshop with a different theme each year. Although the majority of presentations are held by Finnish presenters, the conference also includes keynotes from international speakers each year.

YKTS2022 will be arranged in Ylivieska 28.-29.9.2022
