Adademic Enterprise Award

The Academic Enterprise Awards (ACES) will take place on December 10th in Paris. ACES is the only pan-European programme to recognize entrepreneurship at academic institutions. ACES is a mixture of keynote speeches, roundtable discussions, and networking opportunities.

Speakers inlcude:

  • Jean-Philippe Courtois, President, Microsoft International, Senior Vice President, Microsoft Corp.
  • Bart Gordon, United States Congressman, Chairman of the Committee on Science and Technology in the U.S. House of Representatives
  • David Eyton, Group Vice President, Research and Technology, BP
  • Cyrille van Effenterre, President of ParisTech.

In addition, ACES organizes awards. The awards gives public recognition to those researchers, engineers,
professors, students and government officials in Europe who have done
the most in 2009 to foster a culture of enterprise on campus. This can
be through taking the risk of launching a spinout company, developing a
discovery into a marketable innovation (at the risk of the tenure-track
publication record), or promoting policies that create a receptive
environment for entrepreneurship on campus.
