Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a pilot project initiated by the EU. It aims
at helping new entrepreneurs to acquire relevant skills for managing a SME by
spending time in a business in another EU country. It contributes to improving
their know-how and fosters cross-border transfers of knowledge and experience
between entrepreneurs.

The specific objectives of the programme are:

  • On-the-job-training for new entrepreneurs in SMEs elsewhere in the EU in
    order to facilitate a successful start and development of their business ideas;

  • Exchanges of experience and information between entrepreneurs on obstacles
    and challenges to starting up and developing their businesses;

  • To enhance market access and identification of potential partners for new and
    established businesses in other EU countries;

  • Networking by building on knowledge and experience from other European
    countries between entrepreneurs.
