    In a dialogue on teaching technology entrepreneurship key questions, related to a framework of training rigour, based on several pedagogical instruments from textbook to simulation are presented. Means (textbooks and handbooks) cannot be longer exclusively US based, since the entrepreneurship educational needs outside the USA seems to be different in certain aspects. We will start from a problem statement based on the European situation. It addresses the issue of European diversity in culture in an integrated way using experience of three entrepreneurship centres. The conclusions compare the impact of the USA and the special role for Europe from an intercultural perspective. Our results also lead to some implications for a special role of technology entrepreneurship education as a form of interactive knowledge management between stakeholders giving substance to the educational partner model proposals by Mintzberg and Gosling and Ferris.
