ETEE – Entrepreneurial Training for Enterprise Educators is an Erasmus+ Project related to Strategic Partnerships with the duration of two years. ETEE started on 1st November 2017 and its consortium is composed by 5 entities, namely: London South Bank University and Amery Brothers from the United Kingdom, Vilnius University from Lithuania, INOVA+ from Portugal and INnCREASE from Poland.

The overall objective of ETEE is to improve and enhance enterprise and entrepreneurship provision of HEIs and other organisations so that it delivers more powerful impact for the end users. The specific objective is to design and develop a training programme for enterprise educators: those people who have the greatest influence and responsibility in the design and delivery of enterprise provision, the academic staff who embed enterprise in their teaching, and professional service staff who deliver extra-curricular activities.

Last month, on December 11th and 12th, took place the kick-off meeting in London, hosted by London South Bank University as the project coordinator. All partners were present and took the occasion to discuss the whole project implementation. Special focus has been given to its first step: the elaboration of a “best practice report”, which will be delivered in 31st July 2018, and will be built around the existing best practices in developing enterprise and entrepreneurship education skills and programmes from all over Europe. This report will also include materials, toolkits, resources, research and training programmes that currently exist and contribute to the goals of ETEE in some context. The coordination of this first deliverable will be assumed by Vilnius University.

ETEE project will be composed by three more outputs, culminating on the final Training Programme. The last output: a Training Pack, will include rich content and materials as well as instructions, guidelines, background and suggestions to enable a trainer to deliver the Training Programme independently. The Pack will be available online, on the ETEE website, and will be of free access. INOVA+ will coordinate this central deliverable.

INOVA+ will also be responsible for the communication and dissemination activities of the whole project, designing communication materials, feeding the website and animating the Facebook page of ETEE.
