This paper describes the TACIT4 (Teaching and Coaching Innovation Innovatively) project, a 3-year European Union Knowledge Alliance (2016–2018) project under the Erasmus+ programme. The project combines the efforts of business and university educators to create new learner-centred teaching methods, opens up new learning opportunities, and develops the practical application of entrepreneurial skils. The outputs will be innovative teaching modules which could be embedded in the existing curricula of higher-education institutions and in corporate training programs. The project is designed to develop and test mechanisms than can be used to build tacit knowledge in individuals around innovation and entrepreneurship. The focus is not on developing a new core curriculum, but rather on taking the important elements of existing curricula and focusing on exploring more effective delivery mechanisms. As people’s culture of learning is largely coined through the educational institutions, the project follows a threefold approach; research, teaching, and practice.
