Call for experts: Strategic approaches to improving employment outcomes for ethnic minority youth

Submission deadline: 20 July 2010
The “Fulfilling promise” LEED project is analysing strategic approaches to improving employment outcomes for ethnic minority and immigrant youth. OECD LEED will be holding a seminar on this topic in collaboration with the European Commission and the OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Governance on October 22nd 2010 in Paris. The seminar will be used to develop a manual to provide policy advice to local practitioners.

In order to feed into this process, OECD LEED is seeking experts in the field to contribute local case studies. Each case study should focus on a locality which has experienced labour market exclusion amongst ethnic minority youth and established a locally based approach to tackling this problem. Case studies should be approximately 3,000 words and should be completed by the end of September 2010. The fee for the research will be 2,500 euro. The deadline for applications is 20th July 2010.


18 - 20 October 2010 Trento - Italy
Capacity building seminar: Universities, skills and entrepreneurship
Registration deadline: 1 September 2010

To apply please complete the short online questionnaire by 1 September 2010

Universities are unique places from which great ideas can emerge. Gathering people from various disciplines with different approaches and perceptions of risk makes universities an environment conducive to nascent entrepreneurship. More and more universities across OECD member and non-member countries respond to this opportunity in an active way: they offer courses in entrepreneurship and support future entrepreneurs in accessing finance and premises. Governments play an important role by providing seed funding and a legal framework that sets the right incentives for universities to promote entrepreneurship. But, local partnerships between universities and other higher education institutions, business development organisations and local governments that bring together different efforts and resources, are critical to developing and sustaining new firms.

Having the right mix of attitudes, motivation, knowledge and skills is crucial for starting-up, running and growing a business. There is a debate on whether or not entrepreneurship can be taught, what training should be provided, how and by whom. Some universities rely on a more traditional approach in which their business schools are the main actors in developing skills for entrepreneurship, whereas others engage on a broader level by integrating entrepreneurship skills into curricula, using new teaching methods and involving entrepreneurs as teachers. International evidence confirms the capacity of ‘entrepreneurial education’ to improve learning outcomes and to develop entrepreneurial mindsets.

Much can be learned from an international exchange of information about the rationales behind university entrepreneurship support and local partnerships between universities, business development organisations and governments to foster entrepreneurship. This seminar will explore strengths and weaknesses of different approaches, and discuss what constitutes good practice in local entrepreneurship support.


The 2.5-day programme will be structured around a mix of case study presentations by invited experts, OECD analysts and participants and creative group activities. Guided by an OECD criteria list of good practice in local entrepreneurship support, participants are expected to work on individual action plans that will help their organisations to contribute to and benefit from partnership working in entrepreneurship support. An OPENSPACE session will offer participants opportunities to engage in depth-interviews with people who design and implement good practices.

Monday, 18 October 2010
 1. Promoting innovators, risk-takers and job creators: the role of universities
This session is dedicated to the role of universities in local economic development and university entrepreneurship support. Presentations of findings from cross-country comparative OECD work by IMHE and LEED, and creative group activities will provide participants with tools to identify the hidden entrepreneurial potential of a local economy and to develop strategic approaches to unleash it.

Participants will start working on individual action plans. Work on this will continue in sessions 3 and 4.
Participants will meet with peers in charge of entrepreneurship education and start-up support and engage in short in-depth discussions around success factors, problems and transferability.

Up to four rounds of meetings in small groups will be organised.
Tuesday, 19 October 2010
 All day
 3. The learning journey: from thinking to acting entrepreneurial

In this all-day session the aim is to reveal some of the key links between entrepreneurial success, attitudes, motivation, knowledge, skills and experience. The focus will be on university entrepreneurship education.

We will enter the well-known debate on whether or not entrepreneurship can be learned, and discuss what are skills for entrepreneurship that can be trained, what are successful teaching methods, how to recruit students, the importance of teambuilding and how to get good teachers, also from outside universities.

In several creative group activities, throughout the day, participants will analyse various case studies with the help of an OECD criteria list on good practice in university entrepreneurship support. Work on individual action plans, commenced in session 1, will continue with a focus on entrepreneurship education.
Wednesday, 20 October 2010
 4. Turning skills into success: the role of partnerships in start-up and growth support

Effective start-up support is all about making support systems accessible and attractive for young entrepreneurs, and about rectifying market and system failures in financing and premises to facilitate business survival and growth. This requires a common strategic framework that allows local actors to join efforts in making best use of available resources. In this concluding session, participants will finalise their individual action plans by adding the start-up and growth support dimension.

The seminar is addressed to:

· University management, professors and researchers, who are actively involved in teaching entrepreneurship and in mentoring start-ups, as well as university staff responsible for start-up support.

· National, regional and local government representatives, who are already involved, or interested in, the strategic development and financing of local entrepreneurship support, with a focus on universities.

· Representatives of local business support organisations that are mainly dealing with university spin-offs, and already engaged, or interested in, developing a partnership with universities.


Applications are welcome from OECD member and non-member countries.

There are no participation fees, but participants are expected to cover their own costs.

The working language of the seminar will be English.

To apply, please complete the short online questionnaire by 1 September 2010

By 8 September 2010, 25 participants will be selected on the basis of their questionnaire.

Make an Impact – ett EU-finansierat utvecklingsprojekt

Föräldrarna måste involveras i introduktionen av nyanlända elever

Information om svensk skola och om svensk barnuppfostran. Det efterlyser föräldrar till nyanlända elever på Ryaskolan. Föräldraintervjuerna ingår i Make an Impact, ett EU-projekt för att ta fram bättre metoder för samverkan med föräldrar i introduktionen av nyanlända elever.

- Ärligt talat känns det som att min makt som förälder försvann när jag kom till Sverige. Det sätt som vi uppfostrar våra barn på i mitt hemland fungerar inte här, i en ny kultur. Jag förstår mig inte på den svenska skolan och tycker den verkar väldigt svag ibland. För mig är skolan som en andra förälder till barnen. Därför behövs mycket mer samarbete mellan hemmet och skolan.
Det säger en av de intervjuade föräldrarna på Ryaskolan. Projektet, som får stöd av Europeiska integrationsfonden, är ett samarbete mellan Ryaskolan, Ryaskolans föräldraförening, Introduktionsenheten Hisingen och Resursenheten för introduktion av nyanlända barn, RIB. I projektets metod- och kompetensutveckling ingår även föreläsningar, workshops och studiebesök.

Föreläsning om framgångsrik dialogmodell

Den 21 oktober kommer mångfaldspedagogen Nabila Alfakir och berättar om sitt framgångsrika arbete i Rinkeby med dialogmodellen, en metod som ökar föräldrarnas engagemang och kunskap om barnets skolgång. Hon har arbetat i den svenska skolan i cirka 30 år och är själv, som flykting från Syrien, väl insatt i hur det är att komma som förälder till ett nytt land. I förordet till hennes bok ”Skapa dialog med föräldrarna – integration i praktiken” betonas att all erfarenhet och forskning visar att en av de allra viktigaste framgångsfaktorerna är föräldrarnas engagemang i barnens skolgång.

Tidigare i höst har Pirjo Lahdenperä delat med sig av sina kunskaper som professor i interkulturell pedagogik – en föreläsning som följdes upp med en workshop om föräldradelaktighet.

Dessutom har föräldrar, lärare och introduktionssekreterare besökt det holländska kunskapscentrat Pharos som tidigare samarbetat med RIB om mottagande av nyanlända elever i skolan. Syftet med besöket var bland annat att undersöka möjligheten att tillsammans utveckla en fortsättning på Make an Impact.
