The emerging needs of a post-crisis society, the prospective studies at European level about the “new skills for new jobs”, the strategy documents for Europa 2020 shows that new sectors will appear, new skills are needed, and among them, all have in common the entrepreneurial and ICT skills as basic ones. As demonstrated in the OECD Innovation Strategy, entrepreneurial skills and attitudes, risk-taking behaviour, creativity, etc., will be crucial competencies in the economy of the future (Policy Responses to the Economic Crisis: Investing in Innovation for Long-Term Growth, OECD 2009).

CReBUS project is aiming to develop a training system in order to facilitate the development of entrepreneurship competences for young graduates between 18-35 years old, using Web 2.0. Bringing business closer to the young generation that succeeds harder to find a job, and enabling them to set up their own business is a viable solution to overcome the unemployed or migrant status they are exposed to. By using dedicated Web 2.0 applications and platforms, and eMentorship network, it can be facilitated the transfer of good practices and experiences from the people who succeeded in different types of businesses to young European entrepreneurs.

The project aims:

• to identify the interest domains for starting a business from youngsters that are going to graduate and potential barriers

• to define a curriculum for developing entrepreneurial competencies, using the WEB 2.0 learning opportunities

• to develop an online community and a social network including young entrepreneurs, trainers and other stakeholders

• to develop entrepreneurial competences of students through eMentorship activities
