Research Hub

What is the EBS Research Hub?

EBS is proud to provide the link between researchers, businesses and policy. The EBS Research Hub is one of the ways in which EBS does just this. EBS is currently involved in two projects sponsored by the European Commission, EntreCompEdu (Horizon2020) and SHERPA (Erasmus+). 





'Developing teachers' entrepreneurial skills'




EntreCompEdu works to promote entrepreneurial education in schools. We need to reduce the increasing mismatch between the skills our education systems are delivering and the needs of society which is damaging the aspirations of Europe's young people and, ultimately their future well-being and prosperity.


We want to empower teachers to rethink the skills they have and how they can be used, by seeing their own strengths and using them to improve the quality (and inclusiveness) of school education. We will build a bridge from the classroom through making direct policy and practice-based links between the professionalisation of teachers, educators and leaders and how this can be supported by developing the capacity of teachers to deliver entrepreneurship education through their teaching.


EBS is proud to collaborate on the Communication and Advocacy work packages of this project. 






'What are the ethical and human rights implications of Smart Information Systems?'




Looking towards the future of technology, SHERPA is a project that will investigate, analyse and synthesise our understanding of the ways in which Smart Information Systems impact ethics and human rights issues.


Now is the time to harness the benefits of SIS and simultaneously address their downsides. The SHERPA project is uniquely placed to guide the ongoing debate, focus it and develop actionable recommendations and advocate them to ensure that SIS promote the public good.


SHERPA aims to clarify and exemplify the ethical and human rights issues of SIS through a series of methods:

  • Developing 10 case studies and 5 future-looking scenarios.
  • Spelling out ethical and social tensions and their role in the current human rights framework.
  • Working closely with 45 stakeholders throughout the project to conduct both a large-scale online survey of 1,000 European Citizens and a Delphi study with 60 experts.
  • 10 short videos to demonstrate the steps of the project.
  • Disseminate and Communicate these findings with stakeholders and the public


EBS is proud to manage the work package on Communications, Exploitation and Advocacy.
