To nurture the talent of the next generation, novel educational measures are needed and teachers have to become more entrepreneurial in their choices of effective teaching interventions. This project builds on participant’s prior micro-scale teaching interventions, which show that alternative learning initiatives may enhance enterprising thinking among students. We aim to show what works and what does not in specific educational environments to contribute to the evidence-based development of entrepreneurial education. The proposed project applies an explorative approach to develop new solutions and practices as well as providing transferable teaching models. Its methodology is based on the reasoning underlying practice-based inquiry and triangulates action research with ethnographic methods and surveys. Combining seven Work Packages, one to establish the overall framework for the project; four centering on developing novel interventions, and two aiming at evaluating student learning, we bring into play four crucial dimensions of enterprising activity: the genesis of opportunities; the entrepreneurial mindset; transformation processes; and context construction. We focus on instilling enterprising behaviour through a process of changing mental schemes. Individually and collectively the interventions represent gateways to entrepreneurship. Interventions will be developed in an interplay between students and teachers.
