Entrecomp goal: Create Value

Public and private institutions


Is about supporting actors in all sectors of the lifelong learning system to enhance the development, validation and recognition of the entrepreneurship key competence across lifelong learning. The objectives of the project derive directly from EntreComp research carried out by partners with the European Commission – we will target lifelong learning organisations and practitioners
working across Europe to access and engage with the Entrepreneurship360 platform as a one-stop-shop for the peer networks, guidance, tools, resources and MOOC based training that they need to understand and use the EntreComp competence framework. The project is lead by the School of Education at the University of Iceland in close collaboration with Bantani Education, Materahub Industrie Culturali e Creative, Innogate to Europe, The Women’s Organisation and Democracy and Human Rights Education in Europe. The one-stop-shop will be launched in May 2021, and will be hosted at


The project will:
• Mobilise engagement across lifelong learning to understand the relevance of EntreComp
• Connect practitioners and organisations interested in or actively using the EntreComp framework
• Empower learning organisations and practitioners to use EntreComp as a tool to drive entrepreneurial learning design, assessment and recognition
• Tailor guidance to specific contexts through how-to guides on the potential of EntreComp for emerging areas of potential – initially (1) Employers – HR and recruitment (2) Youthwork and (3) Assessment and certification/recognition
• Map progress of the EntreComp community [ evidenced through an extensive baseline survey and follow-up survey after 30 months to assess progress and impact ]

The project develops four main intellectual outputs that will include.
1. The platform which will be the one-stop-shop at the centre of project and bringing together all the deliverables for the engaged participants including
2. A comprehensive toolbox of practices, tools and resources,
3. Four tailored guides to support emerging areas of use for EntreComp e.g. recruitment or youthwork and areas where additional guidance is needed e.g. assessment and
4. A set of two MOOCs to provide a learning pathway for participants to engage and learn how to implement EntreComp.
