Entrepreneurial School Awards

The Princess of Girona Foundation (Fundación Princesa de Girona) announces awards for entrepreneurial schools open to Spanish educational centers focused on the development of young talent and innovation. The programme to Educate Entrepreneurial Talent (Educar al Talento Emprendedor) of the Fundación Princesa de Girona aims to teach how to undertake entrepreneurship projects as a pillar of education.


Developing entrepreneurial skills through cultural activities


In 2014 the Youth Institute conducted the InnGames meeting to promote the culture of entrepreneurship, employability and innovation in video games, applications and digital interactive products. This program facilitates training and access to new professional environments in the digital field. The program was supported by the majority of companies in the national and international gaming industry, companies developing applications and public companies working in the digital sector. All of them worked on two objectives: 1) To propose new training routes within the National Vocational Training subsystem and 2) to consolidate a permanent working agenda in collaboration with the industry, the educational sector and public institutions involved.

National Youth Award

The Youth National Prizes (Los Premios Nacionales de Juventud) arise from the need to recognize the work of those young people, under the age of thirty, whose entrepreneurial work in the field of employment, inter-cultural communication, volunteering or exercise against discrimination makes it worthy of such recognition (economic endowment of 3,000€ of a total of 12,000€ that come out of INJUVE's expenses budget).
