LEEN angel UCLL: Fabienne Geuens
Fabienne was a student of the teacher training department. For some years she became a teacher in her own class in a Primary School in Leopoldsburg. Later on, as a remedial teacher, she wanted to help her colleagues and gave extra training sessions. But she wanted to do more and so she became a trainer for teachers in an organization for Young Entrepreneurs, called Vlajo (Vlaamse Jonge Ondernemingen)
Now she is a trainer of teachers of primary schools and learns them how they can stimulate entrepreneurial skills of young children. She invites entrepreneurs into the classroom and asks them to give assignments to the pupils. At the same time these entrepreneurs can share their expertise.
Fabienne is in the project, because she is an expert in ‘train-the-trainer’ about ‘Entrepreneurship’. She helped the UCLL-students when they developed ‘Talents for the Future’, an entrepreneurial project for young children.

LEEN angel Univerzita Palackeho V Olomouci prof. Jiří Dostál
Assoc. prof. Jiří Dostál is an expert on inquiry-based learning and is currently implementing a number of investigations that relate to this area. He also concentrates at popularizing science and technology to the public, from children through youth to seniors. He has organized a series of popularizing and educational events that transcend into commercial (business) sector. Since he is one of the angels in our project L33N, I have conducted an interview with him about his activities related to entrepreneurial activities in education.
Jiří is in the project because sharing experiences and good practices is very important. It’s not all about creating and building things, it is rather about motivating other people to cooperate, or help them start creating their ideas and then implement them.
You can find the full interview with Jiří (by Ondrej Duda) from our blog.
LEEN angel Agrupamento de Escolas Tomaz Pelayo: Hugo Espírito-Santo
Hugo is 19 years old and currently studying mechanical engineering at Univesity of Porto. Believing dialog is the best way to work further, he joined a delegation, participating in a EYP session. After that, a will to create a sense of culture and social cooperation among the students emerged, and so he got in charge of the students council in his former high school.
Calling himself an observator, he assures the most important method to achieve a spirit of innovation is understanding people around you, how they interact with each other and the general needs which you might provide the tools to overcome.
Being the best is not only about technical knowledge and the efforts you aimlessly put on your studies. It mainly comes down to social skills where persuasion, empathy and excelence meet, driving you and those around you through a road to success.
