The European Commission has published in 2008 a Report “Entrepreneurship in higher education, especially within non-business studies”. Its primary objective was to compile best practices on entrepreneurship education and put forward some recommentations, with particular focus on non-business higher education institutions. Among 10 best practices in the field of entrepreneurship education the Report presents the Program for supporting lecturers of entrepreneurship from Polish non-business academic institutions, co-ordinated by the Leon Kozminski Academy of Entrepreneurship and Management. The Program is co-financed by the  Polish Ministry of Higher Education and Technology.
