Entrepreneurship skills and attitudes should therefore be fostered in students and researchers to develop their proactivity, flexibility, autonomy, the capacity to manage projects and achieve results.

The guide includes:

  • Key features of current practice in entrepreneurship training

  • The Oslo Manual to Entrepreneurship training
  • Good practice examples
