This initiative aims to bring together relevant players in a number of countries to test how the framework can function as a catalyst and a tool to foster the entrepreneurial skills of young people and citizens in general. It is essential to help public authorities, educational institutions and the private sector to use EntreComp’s findings.
The purpose of this call is to encourage system level use of EntreComp to support development of entrepreneurial competence in Europe, within a lifelong learning perspective, involving stakeholders and actors from across different sectors, including target beneficiaries relevant to specific contexts. The call seeks to support a holistic approach to the development of entrepreneurial competence using EntreComp, from education of young people to subsequent support for upskilling and learning for adults to ensure entrepreneurial competences are developed throughout life. The call seeks to encourage innovation and new approaches to entrepreneurship competence development in different learning settings, the involvement of new stakeholders, in particular employers from the private, public and third sector alike, and also to encourage responses to the changing nature of labour market and education and training due to digital technology.
The measure will include (i) bringing together key stakeholders for interactive discussions around the European Entrepreneurship Framework, with the objective to build collaboration between education and training providers, enterprises and other stakeholders and to actively involve the target user groups in a co-design process; (ii) understanding and defining the role of each category of stakeholders in the usage of the framework; (iii) adapting and updating the framework to local needs, taking into account the specific educational settings and cultures involved; (iv) translating the learning outcomes included in the framework into concrete programmes and activities to take place at school, at university and in informal and non-formal settings; (v) assessing results in terms of an improved offer of entrepreneurship education and of the impact on skills acquired by young people. Eligible projects will include the development of education and training focused on entrepreneurial competences, in either formal, informal and non-formal settings, as set out in the framework.
