Peer-Learning Activities in Entrepreneurship Education and in Women Entrepreneurship






DG GROW, European Commission (EC)

The objective of this project is cross-European dissemination and transfer of good practice in developing national and regional strategies and actions to offer young people effective entrepreneurship education (EE), and to support women entrepreneurship (WE). Towards this end, the project will organise six cross-national work-shops: three on EE and three on WE. Each workshop will have 60 to 65 participants. They will take place at different European capital cities.

The key participants at these workshops will be representatives from national and regional governments, mainly from ministries of education and ministries of economic affairs. In addition, national and regional experts with various professional backgrounds will also take part. Each workshop audience will be composed of national delegations of between three and 15 people. The goal of the workshops is to make the participants interact intensely, thereby promoting intra-national and international peer-learning about effective EE and WE policies. For each workshop, the project team will select and design the most appropriate methods to trigger participatory leadership. Participants are invited to also interact before and after the workshops in an online community platform.

Workshop results will feed into new European agendas for EE and WE policies. Results will be disseminated to targeted experts all over Europe by way of a project website, newslet-ters as well as traditional and social media.
