Closing session


By organizing 3 peer-learning workshops including 38 European countries for public administrations and key public and private stakeholders, the European Commission aims to accelerating and deepening the introduction of entrepreneurship education in schools and universities, through better cooperation between national authorities and all relevant stakeholders.

Policy makers increasingly recognize the benefits that higher levels of entrepreneurial attitudes and skills can bring to the economy, and also to society at large. Participants in entrepreneurship education are more likely than other groups to engage in entrepreneurship. Some research shows that by the time they are 25 years old, these young people demonstrate start-up rates (15%) which are about three times as high as among the average population in Europe. Moreover, their start-ups tend to be more innovative, to have a larger turnover and to hire more people. Young people with strong entrepreneurial skills are also more employable: entrepreneurial employees within a business will help ensure that opportunities are fully realized.

The first two workshops

The first two workshop on Entrepreneurship Education, which took place in Budapest and in Tallinn in March and November 2019, gave the opportunity to participants to look at the key drivers and hindrances in advancing EE at national and European level EE. Many good practices were shared as well as examples of strategies at national level. Dedicated breakout sessions aimed to help participants find different approaches to setting and scale up national initiatives supporting entrepreneurship education. Interesting case studies were shared for Turkey (Mustafa Hilmi Çolakoğlu, Ministry of National Education) and The Nordic model (Christian Vintergaard, Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship).
