We have launched a new initiative to learn more about entrepreneurial communities. These are essentially local partnerships that foster skills, entrepreneurship and job creation.
The initiative will capture what drives entrepreneurial communities: how they create space for cooperation, develop entrepreneurial capacity, use and develop skills, inform policies and are themselves supported by policies.
The key objective of the initiative is to capture good practices of entrepreneurial communities and use the knowledge to inform and help shape policies to support entrepreneurial communities.
The initiative is designed and implemented in partnership with the Committee of the Regions (COR), the Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly (ARLEM), the Conference of the Regional and Local Authorities for the Eastern Partnership (CORLEAP), the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), European Vocational Training Association (EVTA), the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), and Eurochambers.
In addition, on rotational basis, the Advisory Board includes three representatives of ETF partner countries engaged in the Small Business Act assessment.
