This five-month UCL-University of Havana collaboration, running from September 2018 to March 2019, aims to strengthen the capacity of the University of Havana’s innovation and enterprise unit, known as INCUBA-UH.
With support from the British Embassy in Havana, the collaboration includes three main activities:
- Two Cuban lecturers from INCUBA-UH, Leandro Benitez and David Lopez, visited London as guests of UCL for one week in November 2018 for a series of meetings to build their network and learn about different approaches to fostering innovation and enterprise. Their report is here.
- In February 2019, Jerry Allen, Director for Entrepreneurship at UCL Innovation and Enterprise, will lead a workshop at UNCUBA-UH in Havana.
- In March 2019, one of the outstanding proposals developed at the INCUBA-UH incubator will visit London to learn about possibilities for developing their project.
