Background | Agenda | Presentations | Contact |
The conference was part of the project "Strengthening Entrepreneurship and Economic Development in East Germany" that the OECD LEED Programme has undertaken since 2005 in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Housing, Land, Construction, Transport and Urban Affairs, with the participation of the 6 eastern Länder (Regions).
The project aims at assessing the opportunities and barriers for entrepreneurship in East Germany and making policy recommendations based on international good practice and programmes used in other OECD countries.
It is bringing to light:
• New local approaches that could better exploit opportunities or overcome barriers to entrepreneurship.
• Methods to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of existing local policies and programmes.
• Methods to improve the co-ordination and delivery of local entrepreneurship instruments across different programmes and partners and to build more comprehensive and integrated policies.
