Just in from the European Network of Design for Resilient Entrepreneurship (ENDuRE): “Following on from last week’s post, ENDuRE are excited to announce their International Partners Conference 2016 taking place on December 1 – 2nd at the University of Pisa, Italy!
The agenda for this year’s Conference is still in the works, but what we know for sure is that the University of Surrey will be presenting the latest updates on ENDuRE’s online platform (endureproject.eu). Sources tell us this is to include the addition of the legendary bespoke Tool Kit – a wealth of free resources such as course materials and video tutorials – and Volume One of ENDuRE’s three-volume e-book. Stay tuned for more news on this story next month!”
