About the Project
Many companies and organisations in Europe struggle in the war for talents – they are in urgent need of qualified personnel. This particularly applies to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). On the other hand, Europe is experiencing unprecedented high levels mobility of people from EU member states and from other parts of the world.
