The Entrepreneurial School Awards15 October 2015 Location: Brussels, Belgium
Eleven schools from eleven countries across Europe won The Entrepreneurial School Award 2015, a national and European recognition of the best schools championing entrepreneurship education.
JA Europe is the leading organisation behind the Entrepreneurial School initiative.
The awarded schools have been selected based on diverse criteria, such as the inclusion of a vision and strategy in entrepreneurship education, specific recourse allocations, teachers’ training, or the engagement of the local community and business sector. These criteria follow the objectives of Europe 2020, the EU's growth strategy for the coming decade. It notably aims to enhance creativity and innovation, including entrepreneurship, at all levels of education and training.
The celebration will take place on 15 October, in the presence of several Members of the European Parliament, European Commission officials, JA Europe Board of Directors and selected guests. Representatives from the 11 schools in Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and the United Kingdom will be present to receive the recognition. They will meet in Brussels for a working session and ceremony hosted in the European Parliament by MEP Michaela Sojdrova.
