The conference objective is to introduce a variety of fundamental perspectives on entrepreneurship eco-system to help re-building the global economy and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is now clearly recognised that innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as being a central driver of economic growth, are also recognised as very important tools to help achieve Sustainable Development (SD). The conference is therefore aims to discuss and explore various approaches and different ways by the Higher Education (HE) institutions (universities, colleges and research institutes) which can contribute to enhance and support entrepreneurship eco-system towards re-building the global economy and the UN Agenda 2030 across the world and more specifically in the Developing Countries (DCs).
