Embedding entrepreneurial skills development deeper into higher education is one of the main challenges for educational institutions throughout Europe.When we designed the EEE project, it has been our motivation to make a valuable contribution to overcome this challenge. After two years of intensive and fruitful collaboration, we can now proudly present and share the final results of our project. At its core, EEE established support structures for practical driven entrepreneurship education, widely promoted the beneficial potential of entrepreneurial skills development inside partnering HEIs and created a high-quality teaching compendium based on the European Entrepreneurship Competence Framework.
However, collaboration has not been limited to the EEE project institutions but rather been based upon an open innovation approach. This has proven to be extremely valuable for the development of our resources. Among others, we received input from HEIs across Europe such as Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, Vilnius University, London South Bank University, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam, University of Economics in Katowice, West University of Timișoara but also from outside Europe such as Wilkes University and La Trobe University. Moreover, EEE resources have been selected for the EntreComp Into Action Collection by the Joint Research Center of the EC, the best practice report of the Erasmus+ project Entrepreneurial Training for Entreprise Educators (ETEE) as well as the I-LINC best practice repository.
In the light of this, EEE may well serve as an inspiration for other educational institutions with like-minded intentions. To catalyse the latter, we explicitly invite all learners and educators to fully exploit the EEE resources as well as to get in touch with us for exchanging, ideas, opinions, experiences and knowledge on practical driven entrepreneurship education.
