In this session it will be discussed the impact of entrepreneurship as a new paradigms of Engineering Education and the opportunities and challenges that are foreseen. It will be reviewed the case of the KICs, how influenced and stimulated changes in the university systems, e.g. thesis in collaboration with industry, mobility of students, projects targeting innovation. Example engineering education projects aiming to promote the innovation culture in the universities will be presented and discussed.
