A project co-financed by the Erasmus+ Programme

As early as in 2016 the EU Commission developed “EntreComp: The Entrepreneurship Competence Framework” to put forward a shared definition of entrepreneurship as a competence, to bring consensus among stakeholders and establish a bridge between the worlds of education and work. “EntreComp” has the important task to start conversations and improve understanding of what it means to be entrepreneurial in all aspects of life and it establishes the importance of entrepreneurship and initiative and help to develop entrepreneurial competences to tackle economic, social and cultural challenges.

Additionally the European Commission developed in 2017 a User Guide called “EntreComp into Action” to support the further use and awareness of the EntreComp frame-work. Although widely endorsed, the “EntreComp Framework” has not yet been adopted at systemic level in the field of VET nor tested in real settings. The Project EntreComp Implementation (ECI) has the objective of “operationalizing” the “EntreComp Framework” by developing implementation tools and training content for the European VET systems to adopt “EntreComp” in operational environments and ignite entrepreneurship.

The EntreComp Implementation Project will provide operational tools to implement the European Entrepreneurship Competence Framework in Vocational Education environments: the ECI partnership gathers 8 organisation from 6 different countries. During the kick-off meeting, held in Cottbus (DE) on October 28th, 2019, Partners jumpstarted implementation, launching activities relating to the development of the interactive web-based learning platform (Open Educational Resource) as well as the definition of the training. Partners also tackled the issues of project management, communication and dissemination so to boost the outreaching potentials of the project throughout the following 30 months of implementation. Other important topics of discussion have been a preliminary assessment of the methodology to be developed as result of Intellectual Output 2, and an in-depth overview of the training contents to be developed under the third major phase of the project Overall, the meeting represented a great occasion for all partner to meet each other’s, network and share common visions and expectations upon the project.
