Non-academic literature review - background research for the development of the EPIC tool

The purpose of reviewing the non-academic literature (policy documents and relevant background analytical papers) was to establish a platform of policy initiatives / efforts in the field of entrepreneurship education. The European Union has a long record of policy discussion about entrepreneurship education (starting in 1998 with the communiqué from the European Commission to the Council: Fostering Entrepreneurship in Europe - Priorities for the Future). Entrepreneurship education was identified as one of measures needed to create a supportive, entrepreneurially-friendly climate across all EU member states, in order to respond effectively to a challenge for job creation and competitiveness.
