Sailer and Westerbergstarted their presentation by indicating the main focus of the topic. They shared their experience in the enterTime train-the-trainer entrepreneurship education project. They briefly highlighted the interrelationship of why entrepreneurship is driven by the context of university, government, industry and civil society and its linkage with business startup and the necessary entrepreneurial competencies. In further elaborating this concept they showed the audience a kind of combined framework to educate non-entrepreneur to entrepreneur trainers. The session was supported by small group discussion, and each group were given two different discussion questions and later experiences of participants from  Iran, Ethiopia, South Africa, Pakistan and Brazil was shared within the whole participants. Finally, concluding remarks were given by the two presenters and the session was finalised on time.
