dc.description.abstractAccording to the GEM Ireland Report (2008), in Ireland those that have exposure to entrepreneurship education have an increased propensity to start a new venture. The importance of entrepreneurial skills was picked up by the European Union, which in its Lisbon Strategy of March 2000, declared its objective of transforming Europe into the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010, and indicated that it considered entrepreneurship to be one of the 'new basic skills' for this knowledge based economy. This paper will discuss how Irish HEIs can improve their provision of entrepreneurship education in order to affect positive economic growth. In particular this research explores the approach, process and research of the Accelerating Campus Entrepreneurship (ACE) Initiative, which is a collaborative project between five Irish HEIs aimed at creating the entrepreneurial graduate in Ireland.en_US
