In the wake of the economic and financial crisis, the European Union has taken significant steps to fight rising levels of unemployment and return to economic growth. The European Commission (ref. A Budget for Europe 2020) proposed to increase the amounts allocated to innovation and SME development through the stimulation and support to new entrepreneurs.
In effect, a Start-up activity is difficult, there is high risk and more than 50% of new businesses fail within the first 5 years.
A strong and well-performing Vocational and Educational Training can help deal with the challenge required by start-uppers in a really competitive economy coming out from the global recession.
This need was identified during several projects the partners were involved in: in the field of VET, where there is a lack of anticipation of skill requirements and formative routes for new entrepreneurs.
“VET4Start-Up” seeks to address the problem by a pan-European strategic partnership that will encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship.
Supporting the production and adoption of Open Educational Resources in diverse European languages
Entrepreneurial learning - entrepreneurship education
New innovative curricula/educational methods/development of training courses

The preparation of the activities is going to be organised in each organisation and then injoint events thanks to: e-group, ”timetable and Work pian”, internal staff meetings (in each partner organization), call conferences, meeting agenda and preparation of documentation to be presented during the meetings and/or events.
In this section we present the documentation for all the meetings that have already been held and the programs of meetings planned until the end of the project.
