The EEE Teaching Toolkit modules focus on entrepreneurship education and introduce different aspects of both theoretical and practical entrepreneurial knowledge to support innovative thinking and start-ups.
The EEE Teaching Toolkit consists of 23 modules and has been selected as a good practice example of “EntreComp” framework in action. The Modules can be combined in different ways to create new and extend existing academic courses. The modules focus on entrepreneurship education and introduce different aspects of both theoretical and practical entrepreneurial knowledge to support innovative thinking and start-ups.
The aim of this entrepreneurship teaching program is the development, testing and comparison of innovative teaching methodologies in order to widen the knowledge and improve the skills of graduates and academic staff. The toolkit seeks to promote the involvement of the business sector in educational programs at HEIs (higher education institutions) and wants to support the creation of further student entrepreneurship initiatives in Europe.
Target group are individuals coming from different backgrounds, independently of their skills and knowledge base in management, business or entrepreneurship. Students from different fields, as well as other individuals interested in the topic of entrepreneurship, start-ups, or inventors are welcome and invited to be trained in order to acquire solid entrepreneurial competences and/or to further improve them.

How is the EEE Teaching Toolkit connected to EntreComp?
Successfully serving its purpose, EntreComp provided a clear structural guidance for the development of 23 combinable teaching modules that compose the EEE Teaching Toolkit. As a matter of fact, the EEE Teaching Toolkit is a powerful entrepreneurship education instrument to:
- Embed and facilitate entrepreneurial teaching and learning in HEIs,
- Provide guidance for HEI lecturers and curriculum planners,
- Sensitise HEI staff with non-business backgrounds for the added-value of entrepreneurship education,
- Catalyse the inclusion of entrepreneurship education into HEI curricula,
- Involve stakeholders of the entrepreneurial eco-system in practically driven entrepreneurship courses.
Incorporating the EntreComp competences framework, EEE Teaching Toolkit reflects on the main dimensions needed for educating successful entrepreneurs. It translates the core ideas behind the EntreComp framework into practical exercises, that aims at “nurturing a new generation of entrepreneurs” in line with the goals of Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan. With its outputs and specifically EEE Teaching Toolkit, EEE project makes a significant contribution to EU policy to “stimulate the development of entrepreneurial, creative and innovation skills in all disciplines in all three circles”(2011 Agenda for the Modernization of Europe’s HE Systems).
