STARTENT 1st workshop
Brussels, 28th May 2010
We are pleased to invite you to the 1st STARTENT workshop, which will be held in Brussels under the framework of the European SME Week 2010. STARTENT is an EU co-funded project aiming at fostering Business and University partnerships for entrepreneurship education in Europe.
The event is conceived as a workshop to exchange experience on entrepreneurship and its education, starting from the project’s results, and to generate a debate involving relevant stakeholders from the academia and the business sector, as well as students and would-be entrepreneurs.
In particular the workshop will focus on how formal and informal training can be effective in, on one side, fostering the entrepreneurial spirit among young people and on the other, providing to aspirant entrepreneurs the technical/economical skills needed to succeed.
You can follow and participate in the current debates on our group Entrepreneurship and its education
