IDEA had the objective of mapping and stock taking of Digital Entrepreneurship dynamics in the countries involved by identifying common trends, issues, best practices, and tools. IDEA's main aim was to improve professional success chances of HE students with different backgrounds by developing not only their entrepreneurship skills (or knowledge) but also their digital skills. IDEA boosted both digital skills and entrepreneurship by developing and testing a set of innovative materials and resources. The developed materials allowed HEIs to equip at least 200 HE students of the participating organizations with digital skills applied to entrepreneurship by the end of the project. IDEA also deployed project results throughout Europe via its OER platform destined to become a knowledge hub and an open education focal point. IDEA raised awareness among HE institutions and education authorities concerning the potential of digital skills and entrepreneurship skills and their role as business success factors.
