Entrepreneurship Education: A road to success

A compilation of evidence on the impact of entrepreneurship education strategies and measures.

The European Reference Framework for key competences for lifelong learning defines entrepreneurship as ‘A sense of initiative and entrepreneurship is the ability to turn ideas into action. It involves creativity, innovation and risk-taking, as well as the ability to plan and to manage projects in order to achieve objectives. The individual is aware of the context of his/her work and is able to seize opportunities that arise. It is the foundation for acquiring more specific skills and knowledge needed by those establishing or contributing to social or commercial activity. This should include awareness of ethical values and the promotion of good governance.’
