Young entrepreneurs – YES project

The aim of the YES project is to contribute to European competitiveness and to accelerate regional economic growth through promoting the entrepreneurial mindset in the next generation.

Entrepreneurship is not a preferred career option for most Europeans, as established by the flash Eurobarometer n°192 (2007). However, studies show that teaching
