    Legal entities having a legal or capital link with applicants, which is neither

    specified in section 11.2. For that purpose, applicants shall identify such affiliated

    entities in the application form.

    Applicants should be either:

    a) national or regional authorities (i.e. governments or agencies acting on

    1. INTRODUCTION BACKGROUND

    1.1. General Introduction

    Small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) play a crucial role in reaching the objectives

    of the Europe 2020 Strategy2. Whereas they are considered as crucial engines for growth

    and job creation, their competitiveness is affected by a limited exploitation of

    international opportunities and innovation prospects in the Single Market and beyond.

    In this context, the Programme for the competitiveness of enterprises and small and

    medium-sized enterprises (2014-2020), hereinafter referred to as COSME3, aims to

    promote growth and to strengthen the competitiveness and sustainability of enterprises in

    the European Union.

    COSME supports, among others, exchanges among European educators and trainers, as

    well as best practice in entrepreneurship education in the EU.

    The contracting authority is the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized

    Enterprises (hereinafter referred to as "EASME").4 EASME is, inter alia, entrusted by

    the European Commission with the implementation of parts of the COSME programme

    and the Horizon 2020 programme.

    1.2. Entrepreneurship Education (Pan-European Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative)

    According to the EU Key Competence Framework5, the entrepreneurship key

    competence refers to an individuals ability to turn ideas into action. It includes

    creativity, innovation and risk-taking, as well as the ability to plan and manage projects

    in order to achieve objectives. Developing the mindsets, generic attributes and skills that

    are the foundations of entrepreneurship can be complemented by imparting more specific

    knowledge about business according to the level and type of education.

    Entrepreneurship education seeks to prepare people to be responsible, enterprising

    individuals who have the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to achieve the goals

    they set for themselves and to live a fulfilled life. In addition to equipping people with

    the skills to start a business, entrepreneurship education is also about encouraging

    creative thinking and promoting a strong sense of self-wo
