The main aim of READY is to promote entrepreneurship as a viable career choice and/or to study entrepreneurship at third level by giving skills to young people and developing innovative methods to stimulate youth entrepreneurship and links to the business world. READY also establishes a cooperative support structure for Young Entrepreneurs after the conclusion of the project amongst teachers and education providers as well as policy decision makers on enterprise development.
READY brings together 7 EU partners from; Republic of Ireland (coordinator), Spain, Croatia, Belgium, Germany, United Kingdom and Austria. This is the first time that these partners will work on a joint project focusing on Rural Youth Entrepreneurship. As the UK partner, Action Renewables has developed a NING network for young entrepreneurs, (www.ready-ni.ning.com), an education resource booklet used by the EU partners, as well as directly mentoring and educating several young people from the Newtownabbey area. Further information on READY is available on the READY website (www.ready-7.com).
