Abstract

Defining what it takes to act entrepreneurially is fundamental to identify what competences shall be nurtured to cultivate the entrepreneurial capacity of European citizens and organisations.
The Joint Research Centre and Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion of the European Commission have developed a Reference Framework, turning a very broad definition of entrepreneurship into learning outcomes that facilitate the promotion of entrepreneurial learning across sectors.
