About The Project

Eu3leader aims to strengthen leadership and entrepreneurship capacities so that third sector organisations are more able to drive positive change in tomorrow’s Europe.

Working with leaders, trainers and researchers across Europe, we are developing a framework and knowhow platform for entrepreneurial leadership in the third sector. The framework will include key competences for leaders in third sector. The platform will offer e-learning training programme resources based on the framework of competences.

Focusing on a range of competences such as entrepreneurialism, advocacy, social innovation and impact evaluation, eu3leader is the first Europe-wide initiative for improving leadership in our sector.


Eu3leader fellowship:

We ensure that the project outcomes are accessible and valuable for the sector, therefore throughout the project cycle we work with a group of leaders from different countries.

Those capacity-building workshops aim at testing the transversal skills of leaders and gather materials for the pilot trainings.

Eu3leader launch meeting:

London, 15-16 March 2017
At the launch meeting last month we asked group of leaders and trainers from around Europe what is leadership for you?

EntreComp: entrepreneurship skills

The EntreComp framework is a tool developed by European Commission, set to become a reference for any initiative aiming to foster entrepreneurial capacity of European citizens.
It is a shared definition of entrepreneurship as a competence, to establish a bridge between the worlds of education and work.

In the eu3leader project we will explore how EntreComp could be useful as the instrument to assess third sector leaders’ entrepreneurial competences.

Our capacity building workshops will follow EntreComp frameworks’ logic and examine three main competence areas:

  • Ideas & Opportunities;
  • Resources;
  • Into action.
