APSU is partner of the “The Missing Entrepreneurs – Promoting capacity building of Missing Entrepreneurs for inclusive digital entrepreneurship and digital transformation of businesses” project, which will be implemented from 2020 to 2022. The partnership will have partners from Portugal, France, Spain, Cyprus, Italy and Austria.

The project aims at accomplishing the following main objective:
• Build a more inclusive culture towards digital start-ups and support the development of digital and entrepreneurship skills, among vulnerable and still under-represented population groups, in digital entrepreneurship, such as women, immigrants, youth and seniors.

The project will produce the following main results:
• Develop a comprehensive framework of digital skill gaps of under-represented population groups in digital entrepreneurship. This skill gaps mapping will be carried out in participating countries and on the European level, allowing to identify common trends and shared understanding against two EU competence frameworks for digital competences and entrepreneurship;
• Enhance digital and entrepreneurial skills, by deploying training courses and workshops to test a set of innovative education materials and resources, provided by European Academy on Inclusive Digital Entrepreneurship. This will allow to train, at least, 180 people that belongs to project target groups (women, immigrants, youth and seniors) on digital entrepreneurship, by the end of the project;
• Develop far-reaching educational and raising awareness campaign, to combat the stereotype that digital entrepreneurs are young males, by showcasing a wide range of role models and success stories.
