Commission’s actions on entrepreneurship education

The Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan and the Communication on Rethinking Education presented a coherent framework for entrepreneurship education. EU countries set education policies while the Commission mainly acts as a catalyst and a facilitator, promoting entrepreneurship education. We raise awareness, help EU countries exchange best practices, develop support tools and projects with a high EU level added value.

How the Commission promotes and supports entrepreneurship education

  • funding to European projects that will create reference models for further exploitation, through calls for proposals (2012, 2009)
  • promoting exchanges of good practice and experiences at the EU level
  • organising of workshops for policymakers and practitioners
  • helping policymakers and other stakeholders network
  • publishing guidelines based on existing good practice in Europe
  • releasing studies, indicators, and data collection
