New entrepreneurial models and recent challenges call for a different workforce, characterized by entrepreneurship competences. Education plays a significant role in the development of these competences. Nevertheless, entrepreneurship education takes usually plays only at the tertiary level. We argue that entrepreneurship competences should be developed from the secondary education and by the teachers. The present study illustrates and assesses an action research about an experience of educational activities co-design together with teachers of any subjects. Methodologically speaking, we conducted four workshops by applying the EntreComp Framework and the backward design with the participants. Reflecting critically on the activity allowed the identification of an improved framework of collaboration between universities and secondary schools within an open innovation approach including also other actors in the education panorama. The framework consists in four steps (i.e. 1) assessing the current level of entrepreneurship competences of teachers and students; 2) co-design activity; 3) tutoring on the implementation; 4) longitudinal analysis). The goal of this collaboration is to improve the design of the curriculum in secondary schools, by developing technical skills, while stimulating entrepreneurship competences.
