The University of Bologna recently hosted thirty female students with an engineering or computer science background from seven different European Universities. These included six students from the University of Malta. The week's training focused on creativity and female leadership. The students are participating in a project entitled FEPIC (partly financed by the European Commission under Life Long Learning). The aim is to encourage female engineering and science students to improve their creativity, entrepreneurship and leadership skills.

FEPIC (Female Engineers pushing Innovation in Companies) brings together 20 institutions including Universities and other organisations. A key role is being played by 63 female students from the University of Malta and the University of Bologna in Italy who are coordinating the project. Other students came from Universities in the UK, Sweden, Estonia, Hungary and Poland). The students have been involved in interviewing females with an engineering background who are in leadership positions in their respective countries.

The results of the project involve an online questionnaire for engineers which will be available towards the end of the two year project. The University of Malta, represented by the Edward de Bono Institute, is entrusted with setting up an e-learning tool focused on developing creativity.

The Edward de Bono Institute at the University of Malta offers a range of programmes to University students. These are aimed at improving skills related to creativity, innovation management, foresight and entrepreneurship which play an important role in today’s competitive globalised scenario.   

The Institute offers two programs at Masters level. The Masters in Creativity and Innovation, which has been running since 2003, is designed to be interdisciplinary, focuses on the management of innovation and on entrepreneurship skills. The Institute has recently launched a new International Joint M.Sc. in Strategic Innovation and Future Creation in collaboration with three other European Universities which will commence in October 2009. The new International Masters Program will be delivered mainly through e-learning.

In an attempt to foster increased skills in creativity, innovation management and entrepreneurship, the Institute also offers a program in Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) to students enrolled for the B.Sc.(Hons) ICT course who chose to specialize in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (CSAI).
