The EEE Teaching Toolkit consists of 23 modules, these 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.

A modular approach has been selected as it does not only support the design of curriculum and the development of new academic courses, but gives the opportunity to extend existing lectures, courses, etc., by adding and connecting them with specific, single and individually-chosen modules presented in the toolkit.
