About the OBCD Project 

The Erasmus+ funded project Open Business for Community Development-OBCD takes inspiration from the analysis of a new entrepreneurship paradigm. Based on the necessity of combining economic growth and social innovation, the project aims to create more inclusive, creative and sustainable societies and economies. The project investigates how open business approaches applied to social entrepreneurship (SE) can contribute to local development

Based on the findings of the research activities implemented in the first months of the project, project partners defined the training structure and the features to be included in the development of the curriculum and in the training activities addressed to Higher Education learners. The OBCD curriculum for managers and developers of SE has been designed based on learner-centred and real problem-based teaching and learning on the topic of SE and the open business model.

The OBCD curriculum aims to:

  • foster innovation based on open business principles that address skill gaps in the SE sector
  • ‌ stimulate a sense of initiative and entrepreneurial attitudes, mind-sets and skills in learners, in line with the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework (EntreComp). Read more about the “Social EntreComp” findings here.
