The general objectives of the project are to increase the number of students who attend entrepreneurial courses, to encourage creativity and innovativeness at universities, as well as to improve the image of entrepreneurship in the society. The objectives are implemented through several project activities – creation of a learning platform for sharing knowledge and information, development of a program for teaching entrepreneurship, encouraging institutional changes through alumni programs, and three summer schools in entrepreneurship for teachers of entrepreneurship at higher education institutions. Summer schools in entrepreneurship are held each year in one of the partner countries, and the first summer school was held in 2010 in Turku, Finland.
