The role of MCI in EICAA

MCI is responsible for the EICAA – Intervention Repository (EICAA-IR), which is aligned to EICAA Theoretical Framework and complements the development of rubric system methodology & monitoring instrument for competence assessment. It foresees the establishment of a catalogue of entrepreneurial learning resources for use in HEI teaching & business employees training (in-house or external).

To fulfil this aim, MCI will benefit from the outputs of the former successfully implemented Erasmus+ project Triple E (Embedding Entrepreneurship Education) and in particular, from the Entrepreneurship Teaching Toolkit & Courses, which will serve as an orientation for the learning catalogue of the present project.
Furthermore, MCI will implement the developed instrument to assess entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial competences among its own students to create an Austrian case and to reveal where outcomes are still suboptimal and where the intervention repository will help to improve performance. Hence, the ultimate goal is to develop a catalogue of entrepreneurial learning resources to create a resource repository for HEIs and business firms to apply the competence assessment instrument and long for innovative learning materials.
