Policy-makers, teachers and entrepreneurs will discuss the role of teachers for the spread and quality of entrepreneurship education at a symposium in Budapest on 7-8 April. Stimulating the entrepreneurial mindsets of young people through education and training is already high on the agenda in most EU Member States and an objective of the EU under its Europe 2020 strategy. This event, which is organised by the European Commission, is the first Europe-wide opportunity to follow-up on the work of European high level reflection panels on entrepreneurship education in 2009 and 2010.
A new independent network of experts has been created to advise the European Commission on social aspects of Education and Training. NESET will support the Commission in analysing education policies and reforms.
