Entrepreneurship Education in Europe: Fostering Entrepreneurial Mindsets through Education and Learning Oslo, 26-27 October 2006

The European Commission and the Norwegian Government jointly hosted an international Conference on "Entrepreneurship Education in Europe - Fostering Entrepreneurial Mindsets through Education and Learning", which took place in Oslo on 26 and 27 October 2006.

There were over 300 participants from all over Europe; policy makers and representatives from different public departments, organisations promoting programmes and activities, business associations, relevant stakeholders and representatives from schools and universities, experts and researchers in this field. They discussed policies and practices at all levels of education, from primary school up to university.

Through a number of workshops and presentations of Good Practice cases, the conference elaborated concrete initiatives on how to put the recommendations of the recent Commission Communication into practice.

The Final Proceedings from the Conference can be downloaded here. Copies can be also requested by sending an e-mail to:

The main outcome of the Oslo Conference is the "Oslo Agenda for Entrepreneurship Education in Europe". The ideas advanced in Oslo by a broad representation of stakeholders result now in a detailed catalogue of initiatives. The Agenda is a menu of proposals, from which all responsible actors can pick actions at the appropriate level, and adapt them to the local situation.
