The2014 HEInnovate dissemination campaign concluded with a highly successful workshop in Lisbon on the 18th of November, on the first anniversary of HEInnovate and the same day as the new release of the tool.
The event was opened by the Minister of Education and Science, Prof. Nuno Crato, who stressed the importance of tools such as HEInnovate for promoting innovation and new mind-sets in the higher education sector. This was followed by a presentation and debate on the reasons for adopting an innovative approach in higher education institutions. The afternoon was devoted to four parallel workshops that focussed on some of the seven HEInnovate dimensions.
Participants from around 20 Portuguese HEIs engaged in a lively discussion, sharing their experiences and insights, and expressed their willingness to use HEInnovate as an integral part of their institution's strategic development; as some have already done.
