The partnership consists of 14 organisations from 8 countries, 5 universities, 5 companies, 2 research organisations, one association of companies and one European network of higher education institutes.

CONTEXT
Competitiveness of European economy requires citizens and particularly young people to be innovative, creative, flexible and courageous to face challenges in a dynamic and volatile economy. Young people need to become ‘entrepreneurs’: they should be able to turn ideas into action, successfully develop new commercial and social ventures and be innovator in the organizations where they work. Entrepreneurship skills include creativity, innovation and risk taking, as well as the ability to plan and manage projects in order to achieve objectives.
 
The entrepreneurial mind-set, is not a personal characteristic, the entrepreneurial mind-set and skills can be developed through learning and experience and can be achieved within the education system. Thus, European Union has set as a strategic objective to enhance creativity and innovation, including entrepreneurship at all levels of education and training (Education and Training 2020).
