As part of the Skills Agenda for Europe, the Commission has published an "Entrepreneurship Competence Framework" to raise consensus about what entrepreneurship skills are.
The development of the entrepreneurial capacity of European citizens and organisations is one of the key policy objectives for the EU and Member States.
The Entrepreneurship Competence Framework (EntreComp) proposes a shared definition of entrepreneurship as a competence and aims to establish a bridge between education and work.
The framework develops 15 competences along an 8-level progression model and proposes a comprehensive list of 442 learning outcomes.
The framework can be used as a basis for the development of curricula and learning activities fostering entrepreneurship as a competence. Also, it can be used for the definition of parameters to assess learners’ and citizens’ entrepreneurial competences.
