The objective of the UNIMED SubNetwork on Employability, launched as part of the RESUME project, a European Union project funded under the Erasmus + Capacity Building program, is to promote cooperation between members on the theme of entrepreneurship and employability, through the collection of information and initiatives, through ongoing projects and partnerships already undertaken or in the process of definition, with university departments, research centres, researchers, professors, international experts, entrepreneurs, policy makers. The SubNetwork will have a focus on female entrepreneurship and university incubators.
To better respond to the challenges facing the Mediterranean region, in particular the southern Mediterranean countries, all the actors concerned are called to mobilise and make the most of the policies implemented at all levels.
According to the definition of the International Labour Organization (ILO), “decent work” encompasses four strategic objectives articulated around the central problem of gender equality, full employment and productive employment, the guarantee of rights at work, the extension of social protection and the promotion of social dialogue.
The SubNetwork is therefore aimed at strengthening economic and social cohesion by promoting cross-border, transnational and inter-regional cooperation and sustainable local development.
The specific objectives of the SubNetwork are:
- Gathering and sharing information directly with the main players in the sector, throughout the Mediterranean region and contribute to the creation of a dedicated database;
- Conducting studies, analysis and research papers on the above-mentioned theme;
- Encouraging dialogue and mutual exchange of information to create new networks, partnerships and developing joint projects to spread employment opportunities;
- Organizing international events (workshops, seminars and conferences, summer schools and intensive courses for PhD students) to improve the flow of knowledge and exchange of experiences between researchers and faculties;
- Promote the exchange of students and professors at master’s and doctoral level, through the creation of programs and joint supervision of courses and through the creation of a series of seminars for the members of the SubNetwork.
Over 3 years the RESUME partners collected about 300 good practices concerning young graduates’ employability and more exactly about 7 specific topics. To read and consult all the good practices, please go here.
Participating in this SubNetwork means actively engaging in its activities, with commitment to networking and regular participation to its events. Participation to the SubNetwork is limited to UNIMED associated universities and RESUME partners.
