14 European Commission, DG EAC Curriculum Development (Design and delivery) Involvement of Business in curriculum development will ensure closer linkage to the needs of the labour market. It will help to ensure that graduates have the knowledge, skills and competences they need to be successful on the labour market. Student learning is enriched and prepares them for future employment as they gain exposure to live problems and solutions through the curriculum and placements. University – Business Cooperation

15 European Commission, DG EAC Entrepreneurship Professors, researchers and students have a poorly developed entrepreneurial mindset in Europe that results in few spinouts and new businesses. The challenge for higher education is to provide learning environments that stimulate independence, creativity and an entrepreneurial approach to harnessing knowledge. Universities have to get more entrepreneurial University – Business Cooperation

16 European Commission, DG EAC Mobility Mobility between the two worlds should get a normal feature. We should see many more HE students undertaking internships in companies, working on real problems of companies and working in cooperation with companies on common projects. We should also see many more researchers and professors "on the move" – and on the other side company staff should get more frequently involved in the delivery of study programmes.
