CityU Education Platform for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CePIE) is supported jointly by UGC and CityU which aims to enhance professional development of innovation and entrepreneurship education. It will develop an open education platform with an online course based on PIPETM© syllabus and relevant resources for simulating investment, start-up, industrial advisor and IP trading. The online course of CePIE will initially be implemented in a course on innovation and entrepreneurship (GE2304) at CityU.
CePIE will then gradually provide an online course for other students and teachers at other universities. Teachers and students will join the platform both to learn and to further their professional development by simulating a start-up company. The platform can act as a virtual global social network to provide teachers and students with an opportunity to establish a wider team with collaborators outside the university, with a view to expand the platform to the public in the future.
