SPIRIT (Increasing Entrepreneurial Spirit and Raising Hidden Potential in Humanities and Social Sciences at Trier University) is a project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy in the programme EXIST Potentials. The aim is to further develop a sustainable culture of entrepreneurship and to further disseminate entrepreneurial thinking throughout Trier University. Together with colleagues from the Department of Corporate Governance, the Department of Management, the Department of Business Informatics and the Gründungsbüro Trier, we work on the development and implementation of an interdisciplinary curriculum for students of all study subjects, by April 2024. This curriculum aims at raising awareness and understanding of start-up related topics as well as encouraging and imparting entrepreneurial skills. The main focus areas of the Department of Organizational Education in this curriculum are needs assessment, social entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial learning.
