Women are In: Skills and Competences for Work and Entrepreneurship
[WOMIN – KA2 Erasmus Plus Project]

The current socio-economic context proves the necessity of entrepreneurship development, as being an efficient way of supporting the active measures of the labour market to create new jobs and to stimulate the economy. The European strategies in the field of employment emphasise entrepreneurship because it plays an essential part in employment policy and fighting unemployment. The personal and social costs of unemployment include severe financial hardship and poverty, debt, homelessness and housing stress, family tensions and breakdown, boredom, alienation, shame and stigma, increased social isolation, crime, erosion of confidence and self-esteem, the atrophying of work skills and ill-health.
