At the European level the Electrical and Information Engineering (EIE) field is structurally morphing from one with a predominance of large industries to one dominated by Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SME). The EIE field will be at the heart of many of the major challenges facing the EU in the near future, renewable energy, improved personal and organisational communications, new advanced manufacturing facilities, new transportation systems to name a few. The EIE skills’ base of the EU needs to be increased such that we have well trained engineers who are not only technically competent but also able to exploit opportunities through entrepreneurial alertness and action. At the individual level we need to enhance the communication, cooperation and mobility of individuals to enable them to respond to the challenges of different regions of the Union as they arise and to equip those who wish to engage, with the competences required to be successful entrepreneurs. To this aim, our project will establish, as main output, a virtual centre for the development of enterprise skills and competencies and investigate and report on the implementation issues and impact of Lifelong Learning on the employability of people over Europe in the field. The virtual centre will connect learners of any age to a network of educators within academic institutions, business training advisory bodies and business mentors across Europe in a way that enables skills and competence, in conjunction with foreign language skills to be enhanced. To ensure the sustainability and the efficiency of the results during and after the project time, the web portal will be hosted by the EAEEIE* European association. The main impact envisaged will be an improvement of the entrepreneurialability of individuals across Europe and, through this and the novel approach to linguistic development proposed in this project, it will enhance mobility across Europe and will contribute to attract learners in scientific degrees adapted to the job market area. The Virtual Centre fo entreprise will provide a facility through which any learner within Europe can develop their enterprise skills and hence the centre will contribute to the competitiveness of the population in new venture creation and the economic growth of the European Union. Engagement of staff and learners with the Centre will also contribute to the excellence of European education and research in the enterprise area.
