Insight Talks CIAKLII in Tallinn
The Insight Talks gathered the academy and the industry around the topic of teaching entrepreneurship to film and creative media students
CIAKL II Insight Talks took place in Tallinn 18th and 19th May 2015, where film and audiovisual media professionals, academics and researchers discussed the challenge of creating innovative methods and tools for teaching entrepreneurship at film, television and multimedia schools.
CIAKL II – Cinema and Industry Alliance for Knowledge and Learning – is a project co-funded by the European commission under the programme Knowledge Alliances, addressing the need to foster business and entrepreneurship skills in students and professionals in higher education while considering the challenge of aligning industry’s needs and expectations with academia’s creativity and innovation potential.
In this scope, CIAKL II Insight Talks offered a chance to further engage the industry and the university in the discussion of the greatest challenges and solutions to get the schools involved in the creation of successful creative media projects.
On the first day, Marek Mühlberg, a representative from Tallinn’s startup ecosystem, reflected on the best options for improving the knowledge exchange process and pointed out some clear measures to engage industry and universities in joint-businesses.
Another highlight of the Insight Talks happened the following day, with Andres Joesaar’s presentation of Baltic Film School’s strategies get students involved in state-of-the-art transmedia productions.
