Entrepreneurship, Creativity and Innovation Summer Schools for Second-Level Students

The National Skills Strategy 2025 included as one of its objectives to pilot innovative summer camps to promote entrepreneurial thinking and design skills among students. In addition, the OECD Skills Strategy Report referenced that lessons could be learned from new institution – led entrepreneurship education initiatives being funded by the HEA in order to improve the development of transversal skills for innovation across the education system.

In this context and to continue to build on the successful provision of Entrepreneurship Summer/Autumn Camps hosted in previous years, we continue to support summer school initiatives in entrepreneurship, creativity, design skills and innovation for second level students by HEA funded higher education institutions. These summer schools will provide high quality programmes that will help participants develop creative confidence, entrepreneurial thinking and leadership skills.

The call for proposals for these camps has now closed for 2024.
