News from Fulbright Researcher Daniela Staicu

Daniela Staicu, Fulbright Researcher at Penn State University attended in March the „OPEN 2019 Conference: Invent the future of innovation & entrepreneurship education” in Washington DC, where she presented the results of the research with the Humanitarian Engineering & Social Entrepreneurship program.

“Our research revealed that the students enrolled in the HESE program develop skills, attitudes, and behaviors clustered under a HESE Humanitarian Entrepreneurial Mindset. Six of these areas are specific to the typical entrepreneurial mindset of an entrepreneur-oriented towards profit (opportunity recognition, comfort with risk, creativity and innovation, future orientation, critical thinking and problem-solving, and communication and collaboration) and three specific to HESE (focus on social impact, envisioning a social entrepreneurship career path, and mindful of culturally appropriate venturing). ”
