CESES participates to the 'Senior entrepreneurs: Best practice exchanges' project. This project is designed to contribute to the overall EU Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan by directly addressing the third objective of developing role models and reaching out to specific groups, while also indirectly contributing to the other two pillars :
  • the provision of education and training,
  • and the creation of a favourable environment for entrepreneurs, through related actions.
Supporting the transition of seniors to become entrepreneurs (or mentors to younger entrepreneurs) presents an important segment for potentially increasing economic and innovation activity.
