Four of the EUproVET partners (MBO Raad, Association of Colleges, AMKE and the Consortium of Slovenian School Centres) are involved in project GirlsTech.

The Idea for the GirlsTech project was mentioned during the first INNOTECS conference in 2015. Participants at the conference wondered why there was a difference in the amount of girls participating in STEM-studies in VET.

- Shortages in STEM areas
- Most obvious and largest reservoir of talents are girls/women as they are 50% of the population
- In NL a special ‘think-tank gender’ was established to advise the Minister on these issues in STEM areas
- Think-tank advised to investigate the situation in some other countries
- Why are some countries better performing than others

Entrepreneurship has never been more important than today. The current complex and insecure economic environment requires individuals with an entrepreneurial mindset.

Good reasons for a  Leonardo da Vinci project about strategies and training to encourage entrepreneurship.

The European Entrepreneurship Education NETwork (EE-HUB) is a focal point for entrepreneurship education in Europe bringing together organizations and individuals from both the public and private sectors with strong records of accomplishment in entrepreneurship education at regional, national and European level. The network of individual experts are committed to entrepreneurial learning and engaged with organisations or sister networks in the field and/or with national or regional governments. In addition, MEP Ambassadors endorse and promote recommendations of the EE-HUB through their policy work. 

Through multiple channels, the experts in the EE-HUB will collect, analyse and recommend at least 25 “best practice” from the field and contribute to 85 outreach activities. In peer learning activities and meetings, they will reach out through their own networks as effective multipliers and forward these recommendations back to ministries, organisations and practitioners across Europe. 

The EE-HUB is a 3 years project (2015 –2018) co-founded by the European Commission, Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) under the COSME Programme. The consortium managing the EE-HUB is composed of 4 partners: JA Europe, EUROCHAMBRES, SEECEL, EUproVET. Cisco, EY, Intel, Microsoft, Visa, have joined as private sector partners.

Work based learning (WBL) is high on the European agenda, as it is supposed to bring VET nearer to the demands of the labour market. How cost-effective are WBL and apprenticeships from the point of view of employers.
