Entrepreneurship skills and spirit of youth can result in jobs creation, can produce wealth for society can also produce vital social capital. In our days, with the current high levels of youth unemployment in Europe, entrepreneur-ship is increasingly seen as a vital way for young people to be active in the la-bor market, get income and realize their potential. The Agrient project aims at producing an innovative educational platform and providing a systematic ap-proach to train and support young people to run successfully their own agri-businesses. Several innovative open courses and training procedures will be de-signed to efficiently teach Entrepreneurship, focused on the Agriculture do-main. The educational platform will utilize and use advanced ICT-based educa-tional methods like 3D virtual reality. This will contribute in ICT-based innova-tive teaching and training as well as assessment. Teachers will be offered new and more attractive ways of teaching, through the 3D Virtual reality educational environment that will be developed. Learners will have the opportunity to learn more efficiently and improve their skills on agriculture and entrepreneurship by using advanced ICT technologies (like virtual reality), thus improving the over-all quality of learning.
