President of the European Chambers EUROCHAMBRES
Entrepreneurial education and business knowledge are among the most important key competences we can offer to young people. This agenda has been endorsed by the European Union and the European Chambers network, of which the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber is an active and committed member. Germany, Switzerland and South Tyrol have introduced the Entrepreneur’s Skills Certificate® and are delighted with the positive response from educators and businesses.
The acquisition of certificates, such as the Entrepreneur’s Skills Certificate®, is evidence of employability and demonstrates motivation and willingness to take responsibility and become self-employed. I am pleased to confirm my support for the scheme to certify entrepreneurial skills and as a consequence to stimulate the entrepreneurial and economic spirit through education and learning.
