Implementation of the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework

Deadline has been passed


The overall goal of this call for proposal is to turn EntreComp as an idea into action to bring value to communities of users at local, regional national level. This initiative aims to get together relevant players in a number of countries to create a collaborative community that will explore how the framework can function as a catalyst and a tool, to foster the entrepreneurial skills of young people and citizens in general. It is essential to help public authorities, educational institutions and the private sector to use EntreComp’s findings in a collaborative way.


Activities supported by this call for proposals aim to encourage a systemic use of the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework (EntreComp) in order to support the development and assessment of entrepreneurial mindsets and skills, and to facilitate further progress in the spread and effectiveness of entrepreneurship education and training.

Activity 1 sets the foundations for the actions and concerns the establishment of cross-sectoral collaborative communitiesto support the development and the assessment of entrepreneurial skills.

The call foresees designing a strategy with a concrete plan of actions, concerning for instance the design of new education and training curricula, the provision of support services for competence development.

Other activities will comprise development of learning opportunities based on the learning outcomes, testing new approaches to developing and assessing the entrepreneurship competence as well as workshops, seminars and other events.
