Call for Proposals Explained: Entrepreneurship Education Published on: 12/06/2014, Last update: 13/06/2014
The Call for Proposals COS-ENTEDU-2014-4-06 aims to bring together EU and national expertise on entrepreneurial learning.
In line with proposals included in the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan, this new initiative will encourage networking between policy makers and experts across Europe with a strong interest in the development of entrepreneurship education and in greater cooperation at EU level.
The awarded proposal will have a clear European added value. In implementing the recommendations of the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan, it should support European integration and cross-border cooperation.
There are already a number of coherent strategies and measures in Europe that promote entrepreneurial learning in schools and universities. However, the Call aims to make this type of learning a standard feature in education systems. Therefore, a more systematic structure for the exchange of information and experience needs to be created, as well as a framework for monitoring progress according to widely agreed indicators.
The aim is to support a virtual hub on entrepreneurial learning. Members of the hub will act as promoters of entrepreneurship education at European level, helping to increase the exchange of information and good practice. This will improve cooperation and coherence between the many initiatives already taking place at national and regional level.
