A group of secondary school students from three different schools in India recently attended a training programme in creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship at the University of Malta.  During this programme, which was prepared and delivered by The Edward de Bono Institute for the Design and Development of Thinking and held at the University’s Valletta Campus, the  students learned various tools and techniques that they can use to generate creative ideas, foster innovation, develop an entrepreneurial mindset and design strategies for a better future.   

As part of this training programme, the Indian students visited St Paul’s Missionary College and San Anton School, where they engaged in interactive lessons together with local students.  They also visited TAKEOFF Business Incubator at the University of Malta, Microsoft Innovation Centre, and Aurobindo Pharma, where they learned more about creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship outside the classroom setting.  During their free time, they attended sightseeing and cultural activities including a visit to Malta’s Megalithic Temples and a boat ride on a traditional Maltese luzzu in Wied iz-Zurrieq.  On their last day, the students were awarded certificates by the Director of The Edward de Bono Institute, Dr Leonie Baldacchino, who praised them for their exemplary behaviour, hard work and creative ideas.  

This delegation’s visit to Malta, which was held between the 9th and 16th May 2015, was organised by the University’s International and EU Office with the support of the High Commission of Malta in New Delhi, and was a result of the close ties that have been built in recent years between the University of Malta and various educational institutions in India.  The Principal of Maria's Public School in Assam (India), Ms Alpana Phukan, described this visit as “a milestone in the lives of our young students”.  She added that “the harvest reaped by our students from this trip is unimaginable” and looks forward to many such visits in the future.
