About Education and Entrepreneurship
Welcome on the English section of this website. Here you will find information about the Action Programme Education and Entrepreneurship and other information about this theme.
It is primarily the educational system that allows us to open up people's minds to the opportunities offered by entrepreneurship and to teach them the know-how, the mindset and the skills needed. It is for this reason that the Dutch government encourages entrepreneurship in education; from primary school up to and including university.
The ministers of Economic Affairs, of Education, Culture and Science, and of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality have been promoting entrepreneurship in education since the year 2000. This was done together with (umbrella) organisations in the field of education and the business community.
Now the Dutch government is focusing on the continued encouragement, support and professionalistion of educational institutions in the field.
