Switch On Europe!24 April 2017
Join us on 25 April from 8.30 to 12.30 in front of EU institutions, calling on policy-makers for more support to develop entrepreneurial mindsets in Europe. Help us #SwitchOnEurope!
A key priority of the EU and the Member States is to deliver on the Jobs, Growth & Innovation agenda, yet they are lacking the tools to make employability and job creation possible.
The EE-HUB is a network that stands for Entrepreneurship Education by bringing together business and education stakeholders. It aims to give the EU’s future entrepreneurs the tools and capabilities to succeed today and show that Entrepreneurship Education is the way forward.
This creative campaign aims to make the EE-HUB stand out as the leader and go-to place of European entrepreneurship education.
In turn, the campaign also intends to raise public and private awareness on the necessity to foster entrepreneurship education in Europe in order to boost jobs, growth and innovation in Europe.
Research shows how entrepreneurship education has an impact on the entrepreneurial behaviour of pupils and students, on their professional career and their impact on society. For example, students who have been exposed to entrepreneurship education are more likely to end up running their own business: 42% of alumni surveyed started firms compared to 26% in the control group of non-exposed students.
