International Women’s Entrepreneurship Laboratory
The International Women’s Entrepreneurship Laboratory “Tomorrow’s women entrepreneurs: insights for innovative policy and practice for developing human capital in the Eastern Partner region” is the first event under the Eastern Partnership Platform 2 promoting both entrepreneurial and digital competences of women and creating a policy-practice interface through peer learning and regional cooperation.
The event is organised under the 2014 Italian Presidency of the European Union in cooperation with the Ministry of Economic Development of Italy.
We expect that these discussions will lead to recommendations for measures at international, regional and national levels to boost women’s entrepreneurship in the Eastern Partnership.

Put simply, lifelong learning means that people can – and should have the opportunity to – learn throughout their lives.
Increased labour mobility across borders brings the skills issue onto the international agenda so the ETF also focuses on policy actions related to skills and employment of both emigrants and returnees.
The ETF aims to develop the capacity of partner country institutions and other stakeholders in developing, monitoring and reviewing policies in the areas of entrepreneurial learning and enterprise skills.
“Employment”: promoting better functioning and inclusive labour markets and vocational education and training systems in ETF partner countries.
The ETF's role in qualifications is to provide expertise for the reform of qualifications systems in partner countries, in their various stages of planning and implementation.
Teachers are a critical factor in education reforms. The ETF takes therefore the role of schools and teachers seriously throughout its work.
Quality assurance is provided through the development of methodological instruments to facilitate a structured policy learning process, integrating quality assurance principles, and reinforcing the quality assurance dimension in the Torino Process.
Governance modes and models have a high correlation with the overall performance of education and training policies, influencing their strategic formulation and implementation.
