DEEP Project

The DEEP’s main aim is to improve chances for professional success of VET students with different backgrounds by developing not only their entrepreneurial skills (or knowledge), but also their digital skills.

One of the innovative features of the DEEP project is that it teaches these skills in an integrated and interdisciplinary manner, unlike their separate treatment in the curricula of state education in most European countries.

On the other hand, the project provides VET teachers, trainers and mentors with the necessary tools and knowledge to help their students effectively acquire entrepreneurial and digital skills.

DEEP proposes an integrated approach, possible through the cooperation of partners active in multiple sectors.



  1. Mapping and taking stock of digital entrepreneurship dynamics in Belgium, Bulgaria, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain and on the European level, by identifying common trends, issues, best practices and tools.
  2. Boosting both digital and entrepreneurial skills by developing and testing a set of innovative education materials and resources with the use of which at least 200 VET students will be trained by participating organizations by the end of the project.
  3. Deploying project results throughout Europe via its Open Educational Resources (OER) platform destined to become a knowledge hub and an open education focal point.
  4. Rising awareness among VET providers and training authorities on the potential of digital and entrepreneurship skills and their role as business success factors.


Target Groups

DEEP addresses 2 specific target groups:

  1. The primary target group is the mentors for entrepreneurship promotion and business creation at VET level. Those mentors may go under different names: professors, teachers, coaches, counsellors, advisor, etc. They will be involved in the research phase in the project and the test and validation phase for the identification of best practices, case studies and lessons learned.
  2. Secondary target group is VET students who will be involved in the test and validation phase of the project when teachers/mentors will coach them on digital entrepreneurship using DEEP tools and trainings.
