Finland study visit (31 May- 01 June, 2011)

Finland shows a sustained and committed support by the government and a good understanding of the need to engage a broad number of stakeholders in the development of a sound enterprise education policy.

Several enterprise education projects in all these areas are actually in operation with ESF funding. Current ESF Operational Programme allocates some €1.8 million for entrepreneurship education-related projects.

Learning from the finnish experience may help to open up new funding possibilities for entrepreneurship education projects within the framework of ESF 2014-2020 programming period in other Member States and regions.

In order to gain a deeper knowledge , COPIE2 entrepreneurship education subgroup is organizing a study visit to Finland on 31 May, 1 June.

Participants will learn about:

  • How entrepreneurship education is supported by Finland’s ESF Operational Programme.
  • Coordination method between ESF and the Ministry of Education
  • Implementation and impact of ESF-funded entrepreneurship education projects.
