Beschreibung

The labour markets and European societies as a whole are subject to constant change. One way to face these challenges is the application of “entrepreneurial skills” like self-motivation, time management etc. The authors give examples of entrepreneurship in the fields of digitalization, social innovation, and eco-innovation and present special groups of entrepreneurs (e.g. migrants) and their entrepreneurial spirit. Thus, the readers get insight in how an innovative and competitive Europe can look like.
