NewsEASIP COMP project: Students self-assessment of entrepreneurial competences

January 18, 2021

One of the main activities in this first year of the Erasmus+ EASIP COMP project was working on student self-assessment of 15 EntreComp entrepreneurial competences. We provided a questionnaire with 30 questions about the 15 entrepreneurial competences according to Entrecomp framework (two questions for each competence).

The questionnaire was distributed among university students in four countries: Norway, Finland, Italy and Slovenia. We have received 355 completed questionnaires. We processed the data by making an analysis of distribution of answers in all four countries and a correlation analysis. In general students feel their competences are well developed.

Students have assessed the following competences as well developed.

  • Stay focused and don’t give up.
  • Are determined to turn ideas into action.
  • Are prepared to be patient and keep trying to achieve individual or group aims.
