ICEE e-Brief - 9th Edition - May 2017
Research advancing to the finish line
Registrations are now open for the 1st European Entrepreneurship Education Summit taking place 11-12 July in Brussels. The event will combine plenary and practical workshops and is organised under the umbrella of the EE-HUB. It will gather academics and experts in entrepreneurship education, policy-makers and government officials, educators, business and NGOs representatives. In the framework of the event, the next 8th Steering & 7th Coordination Committee meeting will take place and it will offer the opportunity to present and discuss some of the preliminary results of the ICEE research nearing the finish line. The summit will also be the occasion to launch the new phase of the EE-HUB, gearing towards the establishment of the European Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning in 2018.

Save the date for the final event of the ICEE project on 16-17 November in Tallinn, combined with a teacher training conference, as well as the third edition of The Entrepreneurial School Awards . In parallel, an EE-HUB round table will also be organised. More info and programme coming soon.
On 25 April, the EE-HUB launched the first phase of its campaign 'Switch On Europe'. Students demonstrated peacefully in front of the EU Parliament, calling on policy-makers for more support to develop entrepreneurial mindsets in Europe. The second phase took place on 4 May, when JA Europe hosted a lunch-time round table at the European Parliament to share   good practices on entrepreneurship education   and   launch a virtual map   to turn on 'lights' recognising decision-makers who are committed to entrepreneurship education in Europe.

Teaching entrepreneurship education is about guiding students and not giving answers. It works, teachers say!

The Eastern Norway Research Institute (ENRI) has recently published the first research report presenting preliminary empirical findings from the qualitative study in the ICEE project. The field study was conducted during the period from March to June 2016, where a total of 70 informants were interviewed face to face (students, teachers, head teachers, parents, mentors, and JA representatives) and e-mail questions were sent to representatives from the five ministries.  Find out more HERE
