What are we waiting for?

Did you know that 3 in 4 European teachers do not feel encouraged to bring innovation into the classroom? That 4 in 10 companies across Europe have difficulty finding staff with the skills they need, and that students who have had an entrepreneurial experience at school are 50% more likely to start their own business? At a time when a key priority of the European Union and the Member States is to deliver on the Jobs, Growth and Innovation agenda, Entrepreneurship Education is part of the solution.
