Entrepreneurship is important not just because it creates jobs, wealth and improves the standards of living. Entrepreneurship uses innovation to drive the change, to create new products, new markets and a transformed world. We describe in this paper the advance of the two main objectives of the “Computing Innovation for Technology Entrepreneurship” project developed by University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest (UPB) from Romania and Østfold University College (ØUC) from Norway, in the framework of the Education, Scholarships, Apprenticeships and Youth Entrepreneurship Programme in Romania Financed by the EEA Grants 2014-2021. It is addressed the introduction of two new courses for postgraduate programs – “Information and Communications Technology Entrepreneurship” for the Engineering and Management master students and “Information and Communications Technology based Innovation” for the Computer and Information Technology master students. We will present the necessity and the synergy of the two topics, as well as the progress in preparing the materials for them. The courses are developed collaboratively by a group of Romanian professors and assessed initially by the Romanian team, later by the Norwegian partners and finally by the Romanian students, in a lean methodology approach.
