    Bridging the skills gap with entrepreneurship education

    Martina DLABAJOVÁ, Member of the European Parliament

    Many people might think that entrepreneurship is only about setting up one's own company. This is not so much the truth.

    Frank Hennessey, Head of Business Studies at St. Mary’s University College in UK

    Some of you may know the old joke “10 people understand binary, those that do and those that do not.”

    For too long there has been a binary, at least, approach to Entrepreneurship Education, (EE) which we need to address, and do so, as a matter of urgency.
