"Education and the innovation economy: how to train our next-generation knowledge workers."
The debate will discuss challenges on how to train people to feed the innovation economy. Do we need education that combines sciences, technology, economics, entrepreneurship, etc, from bachelor's level, all the way to masters? Do we need new educational techniques?
