The European Project, “StartUp-Academy: Developing International Innovation Acceleration and Supporting Environment for potential young Startuppers” is aimed to develop, test and implement a supporting environment for unemployed young persons with entrepreneurial ideas with special focus on those living in remote regions with limited access to education and training and resources.

One of the most important findings is that 31% of respondents would like to establish their own innovative business within the next 10 years, while 33% of the respondents would like to work as a manager in a foreign company abroad during the next decade.
