Medmobility, the project for Scaling Up Youth Mobility for Employment Across the Mediterranean Sea” submitted in July under the call of the ENI CBC-MED programme, has been admitted to Step 2 of the evaluation process.
The project aims at promoting the mobility of NEETs and young workers through the strengthening of the Mediterranean VET (Vocational Education and Training) sector and job guidance services network.
The Skillman network was involved since the preliminary needs analysis and its participation was crucial to demonstrate how serious skills mismatches determine job demands largely unsatisfied by entire business sectors and clusters.
The Public-Private partnership involves 4 EU Countries: CSCS – Centro Studi “Cultura Sviluppo” (Italy), PACA Pôle emploi Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (France), IED Institute for Entrepreneurship Development (Greece) and Local Development Agency and Employment of the Cartagena City Council and Arco Latino (Spain), and 5 MP Countries: El Space (Tunisia), AASTMT research center (Egypt), NCRD National Center for Research and Development (Jordan), Partners for Sustainable Development (Palestine) and Lebanese Development Network (Lebanon).
The proposal boasts also the participation of a strong network of “associate partners” including public authorities, Universities, and training agencies, business association and reference networks such as Skillman.eu.
The involvement of networks as Skillman will ensure a concrete impact on the cross-border mobility enabling the design or re-design of curricula highly requested by the labour market and the distribution of the employment profiles according to the needs of the different territories.
