Welcome to EICAA!

The Erasmus+ funded knowledge alliance EICAA (Entrepreneurial and Intrapreneurial Competences Assessment Aliance) seeks to assess, analyse, and develop entrepreneurial competences among university students and staff as well as among employees of the corporate sector.

A digital platform for HEIs and enterprises

The project “Entrepreneurial and Intrapreneurial Competences Assessment Alliance” (EICAA), which started on 01.01.2021, is an Erasmus+ funded Knowledge Alliance with a duration of 3 years. EICAA aims to develop a digital platform for the assessment and development of entrepreneurial competences. This will enable universities, companies and other organisations to carry out profiling and monitoring of entrepreneurial competences (e.g. among students or employees). An essential conceptual basis for this is the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework, which was developed by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.

By assessing entrepreneurial competence profiles on the EICAA digital platform, learning activities or training opportunities can be used in a more targeted way to strengthen entrepreneurial thinking and action. Suitable teaching and training materials to promote entrepreneurial competences are also being developed by the EICAA consortium. A selection of these materials – depending on the respective assessment result – will be automatically suggested to the users of the digital platform to improve upon specific entrepreneurial competence areas.

The EICAA consortium consists of 9 organisations (5 universities, 4 companies) from a total of 5 EU countries:
Univations GmbH (EICAA Coordinator, Germany)
Adsata (Germany)
University of Hohenheim (Germany)
TecnoCampus (Spain)
• Antwerp Management School (Belgium)
Management Center Innsbruck – MCI (Austria)
ProMedia Kommunikation GmbH (Austria)
Evista Ltd. (Hungary)
• University of Szeged (Hungary)
In addition to the core team, the project is also supported by a prominent and growing network of associated partners across Europe.

EICAA is subject to the supervision of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission (EACEA) from which it has been selected as one of 30 projects from 217 Europe-wide applications in the course of the Erasmus+ 2020 Knowledge Alliance Call.

By building a digital platform, university and industry stakeholder will be enabled to assess and analyse the level of entrepreneurial competence within their organisation. Furthermore, suitable education and training interventions will be provided to accurately address specific entrepreneurial competence development needs.
