Education & Training

"The development and promotion of entrepreneurship have been strategic objectives of both the EU and Member State policies for many years, and have grown in importance over time, with the European Commission and individual Member States adopting a range of measures. Key amongst these is the building of a stronger culture of entrepreneurship and 'entrepreneurial mind-sets’ of European citizens, particularly young people. Education and training are key drivers in this process." - European Commision


The Hincks Centre in CIT will continue to develop initiatives in the area of entrepreneurship education to add value to this hugely important topic, focusing on education and accreditation of entrepreneurial educators and developing innovative approaches to embedding entrepreneurial thinking into the curricula.
