Enlarging Youth Entrepreneurial Spirit – The EYES Partnership gathered online


20 May. Our Associated Partner ESSEI (European Society for Socio Economic Integration) joined the online gathering of the EYES Project with the aim of keeping track of the results reached during the first period of implementation and planning the activities that will be carried out in the coming months.

In particular, partners defined the final version of the benchmarking to collect innovative best practices in entrepreneurship initiation. Furthermore, the partnership has been focused in structuring the methodological guide for trainers for the implementation of the EYES training program that will be developed in the following months. In addition, partners agreed on the definition of a specific Learning Platform in order to make the developed training available online for free. Finally, the EYES Partnership defined next steps and actions in terms of management and dissemination.


EYES is a project co-funded by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Commission, managed by a partnership of 7 partners from 6 Countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Spain and Sweden). EYES Project aims to support professionals in vocational training and integration in changing their teaching practices, to promote the development of a collective entrepreneurial culture and democratic values among young people (especially those who are at risk of social exclusion, in a situation of dropping out of school, falling into small delinquency, in a situation of long-term unemployment, in a situation of exclusion).

ESSEI is an IHF asbl Associated Partner and is an NGO based in Brussels, created in 2016 by a group of practitioners in the field of international relations, European affairs and social sciences. The mission of ESSEI is to promote European integration through information, awareness-raising and capacity-building activities capabilities. With its direct knowledge and expertise on all EU officials policies and action plans, ESSEI will be able to inform the project and establish operational links between EYES and current EU trends, guidelines and tools.
