IJGE Editor Professor Colette Henry Awarded European Entrepreneurship Award 2017

ISBE Fellow and former President wins European Entrepreneurship Award for 2017

Colette Henry FRSA, of Dundalk Institute of Technology, is to be the 2017 recipient of the European Entrepreneurship Education Award (EEEA). The award is presented annually by the Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship, Lund University School of Economics and Management, Sweden.

The European Entrepreneurship Education Award recognises an individual or organisation that has contributed to the improvement of entrepreneurship education in academia in Europe. This year the award goes to Professor Colette Henry, Editor of the International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship.

Colette will participate in the European Entrepreneurship Education Workshop in Lund April 20-21, 2017. During the workshop she will receive her award and she will have a key-note speech.

"Professor Colette Henry, Dundalk Institute of Technology, Ireland, has been an active international scholar of entrepreneurship for more than 25 years. Particularly, she has meant a great deal for the development of entrepreneurship education within the academic context but also to real entrepreneurs in rural areas and in low-tech sectors. In her teaching and research, she has demonstrated a particular interest in gender issues and been a pioneer in her work as editor of the International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship. In addition to her extensive qualifications, she has been involved in policy development in Ireland as well as for the EU Commission, for the purpose of disseminating good practice in entrepreneurship education to different countries around Europe, among other things. Colette Henry has significantly contributed to entrepreneurship education both within and outside academia and is therefore a very worthy recipient of the European Entrepreneurship Education Award 2017."

This is not the first time that IJGE Editor Colette has been recognised for her contributions to leadership and entrepreneurship, as in 2015 Colette was honoured by the Diana International Scholarly Community at their annual conference at Babson College, MA. Colette was awarded the Trailblazer Award to recognise her legacy and dedication to organising conferences, editing special issues and books, and mentoring the next generation of Diana scholars.
