The CIM Competence Framework is the reference for the recognition and assessment of 15 competencies related to the management of Creativity and Innovation that students and trainees should develop to improve their employment opportunities.

The 15 competencies described in this Framework were selected following an extensive needs analysis in academic and business settings and are linked to the European framework for entrepreneurial competencies, the EntreComp framework.

This Framework describes the CIM competencies providing:

  • a summary of the knowledge, skills, and attitudes the student/trainee should have;
  • a reference system that groups knowledge, skills, and attitudes along 5 competence levels.
