Open Educational Ways addressed to Entrepreneurship through Skills Enhancement and Development
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

One of the most important roles of education is to promote entrepreneurial behaviours and attitudes, as the development of employees’ entrepreneurial thinking can contribute to the positive growth of different economic indicators. In the present context we need to stimulate the entrepreneurial mindsets of young people, foster innovative business start-ups, and encourage a culture that supports entrepreneurship and the growth of SMEs. As entrepreneurship is an individual’s ability to turn ideas into action and a key competence for all people, education can help young people be more creative and self confident in whatever they undertake. Entrepreneurship education is more than thinking about how many new firms, businesses were built up by the people who participated in a training course. Entrepreneurship education across all ages can stimulate personal attributes and improve horizontal skills such as creativity, initiative, and can also promote innovation, self-confidence and the full potential of all individuals. The teachers of entrepreneurship are really missing in Europe(reference, stats, for that by E.U. by a research). There is a need to graduate enough Ph.Dof a educated or at least of a trained schools’ education staff that could be meet to the “new” challenges. students in entrepreneurship who can become teachers. As entrepreneurship education is recommended to be organized as a complementary training(who does say it?), there is a need to train teachers who can offer interdisciplinary courses to cover main aspects such as: (playing a role which aiming to the encouraging, motivation, etc..) generating ideas and recognizing opportunities, creating new venture/organization, growing a young venture, as well as more specific subjects as innovation management, corporate entrepreneurship, and entrepreneurial management. In this respect, to make real progress, curricula for schools at all levels should include entrepreneurship as an objective of education. To build up an efficient entrepreneurial education we must take into account the importance of female entrepreneurs in schools with the aim of fostering a positive balance between women and men. It is also very important to have in view that entrepreneurship must be fostered equally among disabled persons and other disadvantaged groups.
