Formal education (primary, secondary, university)

Entrecomp goal: Implement

Public and private institutions


Is an Erasmus+ project (09/2017-08/2020) in which six countries (Austria, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, the Netherlands and Portugal) create and research ‘Social Entrepreneurial’ lessons for elementary schools and teacher training programmes. Social Entrepreneurship Education aims to teach children skills, knowledge and an attitude that makes them able to improve their
lives. This includes entrepreneurship, learning about sustainable development goals (UN), responsibility, autonomy, creativity, curiosity, and taking the initiative. The project aim is to enshrine (Social) Entrepreneurship Education in a sustainable way in the teaching and blended learning programmes of the educational institutions of the six participating countries: as part of the
education and training of primary school teachers at universities and in the partnering primary schools.
