Innovation&Employability Nexus in the Mediterranean: the new UfM initiative and the participation of UNIMED SubNetwork on Employability


In the framework of the cooperation with the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), UNIMED is participating in an interesting initiative on Reinforcing the Innovation-Employability Nexus in the Mediterranean (UfM RI-EN) launched by the Union for the Mediterranean, together with the German Development Cooperation.

In particular, two webinars on May 5th “How to promote employability and digitalisation” and May 19th “How to promote entrepreneurship and start-up creation in Research and Innovation“-focused on the reinforcing careers of graduates and young researchers- are organised. On this occasion, Universities in general, international organisations, ministries, private sector and relevant stakeholders will share and discuss regional needs, best practices and key initiatives.

The UNIMED members of the SubNetwork on Employability will also participate in the online events.

Launched as an initiative of the Resume project, the SubNetwork on Employability gathers 23 universities from 11 countries and aims at promoting 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.
