ESN is proud to announce you a new project: we're partners this time about promoting entrepreneurship!

The project supports dynamic and targeted cooperation with companies and offers an increasing number of part-time placement opportunities to mobile and non-mobile students in addition to their academic studies.

The purpose of the project is to build awareness to see massive changes in the Higher Education context. The guidelines move from the view that the need to foster an entrepreneurial education, to enhance employment-education interface, and to reduce the difference between practice and Higher Education towards collaboration, can no longer be ignored.

Indeed, Higher Education Institutions (HEI) are increasingly under pressure to become more relevant in society, to behave more entrepreneurially, and to adapt itself to the professional environment for which graduates must be prepared. 

Barriers to the desired change towards entrepreneurial HEI and collaboration between those and companies, are still hard to defeat. 

On these grounds, the guidelines aim to make clear to readers the several reasons to encourage collaboration and an entrepreneurialisation of HEI

The guidelines specify the themes relating to the structure of curricula and teaching approaches; the strategies to support embedment of entrepreneurship education and to successfully conduct changing processes; the ways to engage economic actors.
