The AccEnt project aims to boost the entrepreneurial performance of all consortium members in close collaboration with their ecosystem partners. The project focuses on improving and extending core  entrepreneurial activities at three different levels: students (entrepreneurship); faculty and researchers (founders, academic spin offs); and ecosystems (scale-ups, open innovation).

Complementary efforts and resources will be devoted to developing testbed infrastructures, comprehensive  curricula and supportive material based on the EntreComp framework, as well as to developing and anchoring better practices by creating a learning community within and across the consortium’s  ecosystems.

As such, the consortium consists of a variety of complementary higher education institutions (HEIs) situated across Europe:

  • Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (coordinator) (Greece);
  • Fontys University of Applied Sciences (Netherlands);
  • KU Leuven (Belgium);
  • Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (Poland);
  • Pablo de Olavide University (Spain);
  • Thomas More (Belgium);
  • University of Macerata (Italy).
