The 2nd European Entrepreneurship Education Summit will be organised in Lille, France on 4-5 July 2019, under the High Patronage of Mr. Emmanuel MACRON, President of the French Republic. The Summit will gather experts in entrepreneurship education, EU and national policy-makers, government officials, educators, business and NGO representatives. The goal of the EE-HUB is that every young person should have at least one practical entrepreneurial experience before they leave school. The Entrepreneurship Education Summit takes place in a timely context looking ahead to the next 5 years, with the European Parliament elections and the renewal of the European Commission, in addition to many national elections in different European countries. It is the right time to stress the need to increase the quantity, quality and impact of entrepreneurship education in Europe in the coming years.
Over two days, Summit participants will participate in thematic plenary sessions with high-level keynote speeches, panel debates and interactive discussions on the most relevant policy-topics such as strategic goals, financing streams and many more. Special features in 2019 include the signing of a Call to Action by national Ministers, EU decision-makers, business leaders and other stakeholders, with a commitment to deliver on key goals in the next five years. Another highlight of the Summit will be the launch of the Entrepreneurship Education Monitor, aiming to provide illustrated evidence of the benefits of entrepreneurship education as well as the current trends across Europe.
|The Entrepreneurship Education Summit is organised in parallel with the JA Europe Company of the Year Competition where the best young entrepreneurs from across Europe will be celebrated.
