EntreComp and GreenComp for Entrepreneurship. What is the ‘Real’ Relationship?
Keywords:Entrecomp, GreenComp, sustainability, responsible entrepreneurship education
This paper seeks to explore the relationship between two educational frameworks: EntreComp, the European entrepreneurship competency framework (Bacigalupo et al., 2016) and GreenComp, the European sustainability competency framework (Bianchi et al., 2022). At first sight the relationship is just a matter of competency addressing entrepreneurship and sustainability respectively. Thus, a simple comparison between the two lists of competences would reveal two similar but different competency lists, perhaps aimed at different audiences? The reality though, we posit, is that there is an underlying conceptual emphasis on responsibility which is yet to be fully explored. This paper provides the above comparison but then explores this conceptual underpinning in the light of what we term Responsible Entrepreneurship Education.
