The Technological Entrepreneurship Programme, which is being implemented in schools in Israel, has received a European Training Foundation (ETF) award for good practice in the area of youth entrepreneurship training. The programme was set up by the country’s leading technology and science educational network – ORT – to introduce entrepreneurship into classrooms.
“Hi-tech, creativity and entrepreneurship go hand in hand,” said Nobel laureate Dan Shechtman, Professor of Materials Science at the Israel Institute of Technology, who sits on the steering committee of the programme. 
“The idea is to teach every child in Israel entrepreneurship like you teach mathematics, physics, chemistry, and English,” Shechtman said.
