The Missing Entrepreneurs 2014 - Policies for inclusive entrepreneurship in Europe  (18/12/2014)

Catalog N. : KE-02-14-710-EN-N

This publication examines how public policies at national, regional and local levels can support job creation
by encouraging business start-ups and self-employment by people from disadvantaged or under-represented
social groups in entrepreneurship. It shows that there is substantial potential to combat unemployment and
stimulate social inclusion by promoting entrepreneurship in populations such as women, youth, seniors, the
unemployed, and migrants, if the specific problems they face can be addressed and if entrepreneurship
policies are opened up to all. Policy discussion in this report focusses on business creation from
unemployment, entrepreneurship by ethnic minority groups, business development services for start-ups
and the interaction between social security systems and inclusive entrepreneurship policies, and offers the
inspiration of existing good practices from across the European Union.

Catalog N. : KE-02-14-592-EN-N

Low qualified workers encounter increasing difficulties to find a job, face lower job stability and are out-competed by medium-skilled workers even in elementary occupations. In contrast, job opportunities are growing in some high-skilled professions. These are the main findings of the European Vacancy and Recruitment Report 2014. The report also highlights the increase in temporary and part-time work during the crisis and underlines the need to better support school-to-work transitions, to decrease segmentation of the labour markets and to up-skill jobseekers, particularly the low qualified. This report is available in electronic format in English only.

The European Commission and OECD have joined forces to produce a brochure, which emphasises the importance of a shift in entrepreneurship policy within this demographic, to encourage it to become more active. In this context, it examines a range of different initiatives and schemes that could be implemented to promote business start-ups by older people.This brochure will be available online in English, German and French.
