Partners of the Erasmus+ project “SELF – Solo Entrepreneurs Learning Framework” held the Kick-Off Meeting at the premises of the Belgian partner, IHF asbl, in Brussels on January 26, 2024.

The SELF project, co-funded by the European Commission, aims to provide a robust learning framework to enhance HE students’ sense of initiative and solo-entrepreneurship skills. By using transdisciplinary approaches and innovative pedagogies, the project seeks to foster a new generation of self-employed professionals ready to thrive in a digitally unified European labor market.

During the meeting, the partnership—led by the University of Malaga and including the University of Aveiro, EDUCATT, IHF asbl, IDP, IWS, and UNIBA—engaged in comprehensive discussions on project objectives and strategic implementation. The diverse expertise and perspectives of these partners strengthen the project’s capacity to achieve its goals.

This gathering marked a significant milestone as partners from across Europe convened to discuss the project’s work breakdown structure, plan upcoming activities, and set deadlines. The meeting also underscored the project’s potential positive impact on entrepreneurship among higher education (HE) students throughout the European Union.

Implementation strategies include identifying relevant competences for aspiring solo-entrepreneurs, developing specialized curricula, tools, training, and resources for self-employment. A pivotal component is the “SELF Digital Warehouse,” an e-learning platform housing all project results. The project also involves testing and validating these resources with 200 participants, producing guidelines for practitioners, and providing recommendations for policymakers to ensure project scale-up and sustainability.

The Brussels meeting highlighted the SELF project’s potential to significantly impact HE students by equipping them with entrepreneurial skills and fostering a supportive digital environment. The consortium remains optimistic about the progress made and is committed to ongoing collaboration and successful project implementation.
