Design study on a scheme to attract non-EU resident highly skilled entrepreneurial innovators
Final report - Study
The objective of this study is to design an EU-wide scheme (EU scheme) to attract highly skilled non-EU resident entrepreneurial innovators to Europe. The focus is on entrepreneurs at the early stages of their businesses’ life-cycle (seed phase, start-ups, scale-ups), with potentially scalable businesses, in particular in high-tech and creative industries, but not exclusively. In this study the design and application of five scheme components are investigated: a web based service platform, publicity campaign, business support (via designated intermediaries), financial support, and an EU... start-up visa (permit) or support in getting a visa (permit).
