Erasmus For Young Entrepreneurs
The general objective of the REMPART project was to establish a unique European partnership to implement mobility schemes among young, would-be and nascent European entrepreneurs from and to the partners’ regions. In particular, the project aimed at ensuring that remote regions in Europe were included in the geographical coverage of the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Programme.
The REMPART project specifically aimed to:
• offer people in their early stages of entrepreneurship the opportunity to learn from established and successful entrepreneurs and to build and develop their capacities
• facilitate and promote networking, exchange of experience and intercultural learning among entrepreneurs in the EU
• mobilize entrepreneurs from remote regions to exchange experience, enhance learning and networking with other entrepreneurs from other European countries and regions
The project facilitated the initiation and development of 50 mobility schemes between recently established, nascent and would-be entrepreneurs (NE – nascent entrepreneurs) and experienced and successful entrepreneurs (HE – host entrepreneurs) through periods spent by NE at the companies of HE in other EU Member States.
REMPART project paved the way for long-term partnership among peripheral and central EU regions for supporting and enhancing entrepreneurship. As a result, the REMPART project mobilized entrepreneurial potential of remote regions and allowed other European regions to benefit from this potential.
Period of implementation: December 2008 - June 2010
