|abstract: ||An extraordinary proliferation of entrepreneurship courses and programs was and still is underway
in colleges and universities worldwide. In Europe this phenomenon has been further stimulated
by the focus on Entrepreneurship as key objective for the implementation of the Europe2020
strategy (EC, 2010).
This paper provides a systematized overview of patterns and directions in EE in Europe in recent
years. We conduct a review of the published research of the theme with an European focus in an
attempt to organize the literature along precise lines. When possible we use empirical findings to
sustain our arguments. Systematizing the existing literature is a necessary step in developing the
field. For researchers, this overview will be constructive in providing an analysis of the directions
of published research and in setting up a research agenda for the future. It also raises awareness
with regard to entrepreneurship, and in particular, to its potential contribution to the individuals
and to the competitiveness of economies. The empirical analysis adds to our knowledge about the
current situation of EE in practice in Europe.|
