SCE is part of a consortium under lead of Ecorys (NL) to develop a tool for the assessment of the impact of entrepreneurship education programs for higher education institiutions.
The consortium will perform a study identifying and categorising existing entrepreneurship education programmes as well as their results (impacts). This will form the basis of the design of an online tool that helps educators/students to ‘pick’ the right kind of programmes, in terms of design, intended impact, target group or content of programme.
The overall aim of the project is to emancipate European citizens as entrepreneurs, stimulate skills, attitude and mind-set development towards a flexible and pro-active stance to entrepreneurial thinking and behaviour. The development of entrepreneurial skills, also as part of the wider 21st century skills, is of vital importance to the European Commission (EC). The EC seeks to identify, monitor and evaluate existing projects/activities that contribute to that development.
The project ‘Evaluation of Entrepreneurship Education Programmes in Higher Education Institutions and Centres (EEEPHEIC)’ commissioned by the European Commission’ Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture is conducted by a consortium of Ecorys Nederland B.V. (Ecorys), Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship, J.J. Strossmayer University in Osijek, Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship and Technopolis Group.
