Recently entrepreneurship became one of eight capacities the long-life learning
activities of the EU will have to focus on. Against this backdrop E³
established a partnership dealing with experiences in different European
countries and different Grundtvig target groups.
To determine European dimensions of entrepreneurship and its teaching, it is
necessary to learn about the different concepts, practices and culture-specific
valuations of entrepreneurship throughout Europe and about the different
didactical methodologies, especially the breakdown of entrepreneurship into a
set of competences and the respective learning targets.
Thus the partnership developed and keeps up to date a repository for each
participating country regarding
the definition and image of entrepreneurship,
how entrepreneurial education is structured,
the attitude towards entrepreneurship, and
how entrepreneurship is stimulated.
The repository also contains general information about European studies and
projects concerning entrepreneurship. On this analytical basis the partners
want to use the results for the improvement of their own teaching and to
disseminate these results on a general level in order to increase awareness of
the need for specific training methodologies in spite of the common European
aspects of entrepreneurship.
