This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.

The main objective of HEED-Africa is to develop and implement a harmonised entrepreneurship education ecosystem in Sub-Saharan Africa through enhanced academic mobility across five regional higher education institutions.The aim is to create the learning conditions that make it easy for tutors and students alike to increase their ability as graduates to become job creators rather than job seekers.

The expected outputs of the project include training of up to seventy-three masters and twenty-four doctorate students as well as twenty staff with the skills in entrepreneurialism in a way not currently offered at their own institutions.

The HEED-Africa research projects are expected to provide unique empirical insights into inter-institutional processes for harmonising entrepreneurship programmes through joint publications and conferences papers.

Overall, it supports the development of a more harmonized pedagogy for teaching, researching and transferability of entrepreneurship education best practices for graduate employment across the continent.
