Expert Group on Indicators on Entrepreneurial Learning and Competence: Final Report

Language: EN

Posted by Eva ALOS MELCHOR

The Europe 2020 strategy recognises that if Europe is to meet the economic and social challenges it faces there is a critical requirement for its citizens to become more entrepreneurial across all walks of life - for example, in economic and social innovation, new business creation, employability and active citizenship2. The European Commission has been a long term supporter of entrepreneurship education as it sits at the heart of an ’entrepreneurial ecosystem for Europe’.

In 2006 the Recommendation of the European Parliament and the Council on Key Competences for Lifelong Learning recognised ‘sense of initiative and entrepreneurship’ as one of eight key competences for every European citizen. Subsequently, entrepreneurship education has been incorporated in the common objectives for the education and training systems of the EU (ET2010 and ET 2020), highlighted as a key action within the Rethinking Education4 communication and remains one of the three main pillars of the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan “Reigniting the Entrepreneurial Spirit in Europe”5 adopted in January 2013.

This Report outlines the parameters of a best practice monitoring framework for entrepreneurship education before undertaking a process of assessment of existing indicators and related data sources.
