The Kick-off Meeting of the project and the subsequent Summer School took place from 23 until 29 March 2015 in Santiago de Chile.

The objective of the project is to set up and strengthen international and inter-sectoral collaboration in the research field of competence development of young women entrepreneurs and to promote women’s entrepreneurial potential in Europe.

The scientific goal is to get a better understanding of the fundamental entrepreneurial competences in Germany and Ireland and to develop an educational programme to close competence gaps in order to enhance the ratio of successful women entrepreneurs across Europe.
