This study explores the collaboration between uni- versities and secondary schools in co-designing experiential learning activities for fostering entrepreneurial competences applying the EU Entrepreneurship Competence Framework. articipatory action research involved sixty secondary school teachers from Italy and Switzerland. The study reveals barriers (lack of strategy, collaboration ecosystem, and competence monitoring), enablers (active tutoring, shared language, and digital technologies), and outcomes (teacher, learner, and bridging school-job gap). This study contributes a process framework for collaborative innovation between universities and secondary schools, informing the design of effective entrepreneurship education programs.
