This Action Line is coordinated by the Entrepreneurship Board, chaired by University of Lyon, and has the following main objectives:

  • Stimulating entrepreneurial mind-set and creativity
  • Reinforcing regional engagement
  • Building on complementary strengths and cross-sectoral collaborations

Overview of planned activities

  2. Arqus Entrepreneurship Community: establishing a network of staff and mentors across Arqus, piloted by the Entrepreneurship Board
  3. Common Course Itinerary: a three-level accessible and customizable entrepreneurship course (building awareness, practical tools and knowhow, and building real entrepreneurial ventures)
    • Engaged Community Challenge: a European SDG-based challenge, using the resources to build awareness on entrepreneurship
