Associate Professor Marco van Gelderen at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam has won the European Entrepreneurship Education Award (EEEA) 2023. Congratulations Marco!

The EEEA is presented annually by the Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship and recognizes an individual or an organization that has contributed to the improvement of entrepreneurship education in academia in Europe.

Marco van Gelderen is a key scholar within the entrepreneurship education community when it comes to the teaching and learning of enterprising competencies. As a psychologist, Van Gelderen’s interest lies in how individuals become more effective in their daily life through enterprising behaviors. Van Gelderen has also played a crucial role in developing novel and innovative experiential teaching formats to train enterprising competencies by integrating an autonomy-based approach as a guideline for entrepreneurship education. As a result, his teaching formats have been successfully disseminated not only on his website, but also in various courses and educational levels across different European universities. In addition, Van Gelderen is a well-published scholar within entrepreneurship education, competencies, and pedagogy.

The award ceremony will be organised in connection to the 3E 2023 Conference on 10-12 May 2023 in Aarhus.
