Paradigm Shift: Redesigning the Support Systems for Entrepreneurship.
The aim of Work Package 8 is to a) evaluate any discrepancies between the current support systems for entrepreneurship and the requirements of adapted systems for sustainable entrepreneurship; and b) develop a holistic model for a paradigm shift in support systems adapted for sustainable entrepreneurship at national and EU-levels. In WP8 the implications from the findings in WP 2 to 7 for the structure and content of public, private and intermediary support systems will be explored both for the specifics in the national contexts of Finland, Germany and Sweden, as well as overarching implications for the EU-level. Here we will employ a systems approach in evaluating how different actors and influence factors can be integrated into redesigned support systems.
