  • live performances (concert, theater, etc.).

These cultural and creative industries will be considered in their strategic and economic dimensions, as well as their link to globalization, to consumer behavior and the future of creativity and creation.

Call for Applications from Doctoral Students for a Course on Entrepreneurial Culture in its Second Edition
We are launching a second call for applications from Doctoral students, who are working on projects or who have ideas for new projects, in order to attend a course on entrepreneurial culture. This call forms part of the charter signed by all partners and in response to the Second Symposium on the Professionalization of Doctoral Studies, which took place on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at Saint Joseph University in Beirut, jointly organized by the LAAS (Lebanese Association for the Advancement of Science) and Saint Joseph University in Beirut, and whose Doctoral College at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik strives to establish a link between doctoral studies and companies and industries.

The project in question could stem from the thesis itself or be independent of the scientific studies carried out by the Doctoral students. Alternatively, it could be related to the industrial, digital, or service provision fields, for example.

This course will involve action learning and will be led by an expert from the University of Lorraine, Professor Christophe Schmitt, holder of the Chair Entreprendre, on April, 4 and 5, 2017.

For this second edition, we will recruit 15 Doctoral students from all majors among the Doctoral schools of the Lebanese University, Saint Joseph University, the American University of Beirut, the Beirut Arab University and the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, which are the partner institutions. The course will be given in French language and will be supported by IDéO©, a method to promote entrepreneurial dynamics.

To register for this course, Doctoral students are required to send their application by email to the administration of the Doctoral College at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik: before Friday, March 24, 2017 and send as an attachment a brief CV mentioning their Graduate School, and an overview of the project not exceeding 500 words.
