Abstract

The paper makes a comparative analysis, regarding the offer of facilitators for entrepreneurship education in a region of Central and Eastern Europe (Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia), using a model that is starting from Kano’s model of satisfaction, the five levels of inventiveness proposed by Altshuller, and the activities and product/services degree of ideality, a methodology for the assessment of the innovation level, in general, and of the entrepreneurship education in particular. In order to sustain the practicability of the proposed methodology, the research includes a case study about innovation level for the activities of the main facilitators for entrepreneurship education in Romania, and a comparative analysis between Romania and Bulgaria, Hungary and Serbia.
