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
