NOVEMBER 2015: THIRD TRANSNATIONAL SEMINAR IN FLORENCE, ITALY
During the third seminar, organised by CEDIT on the 26th and 27th November, each partner of the Erasmus+ RMT project presented the survey conducted on their network of companies, on the perception of the competences acquired through international mobility in terms of professionalization. In total, 170 European companies were interviewed. We then validated together the data analysis methods to establish guidelines and thus ensure the harmonization of all contributions that will be integrated into the second compendium of the project.
“European mobility and employability: what benefits for business?”: part 2
‘Mobility allows better professionalism, the acquisition of greater technical expertise and greater openness of mind. For businesses, mobility brings advantages for management, human resources, the development of new skills and and the opening of European markets.’ Increasing the opportunities for learning from mobility, improving the recognition of skills in the EU, are themes at the heart of current thinking within European bodies. These are the main conclusions that emerged during the conference “European mobility and employability: what benefits for business? “organised with the support of the Ile de France European office in Brussels on 13 October 2015.
Conference on the recognition of skills and employability in Europe
On the 13 and 14 October 2015, a conference was held for the recognition of skills and employability in Europe, organised by three European Erasmus + agencies from Belgium, France and Luxembourg. The aim was to come together and produce a review of European tools for employability. This is because the acquisition of skills, identifying and highlighting them during a job interview is more than ever a passport to employment. The findings from this conference will be brought to the attention of national and community decision-makers. A synthesis, prepared by EurActiv, is available by clicking here.
The outcomes of the workshop on “International mobility, employability and cross-curricular skills’ are aligned to the thematic of the Erasmus + RMT project: how to capitalise on the experiences of transnational mobility for people in career transition; how to bring the existing monitoring and guidance tools up to date? The project also seeks to highlight the role of European businesses that are too often absent from impact studies by asking the about their perception of this type of mobility and its added value to their recruitment policy.

Programme of the conference
Erasmus+ RMT meets the ARF (Assembly of the Regions of France)
The ARF includes several committees or thematic working groups which brings together the agencies and/or elected representatives of French regions. It meets quarterly. One of these groups works specifically on the latest international mobility developments and issues for young people, whatever their status: students, apprentices, jobseekers… The presentation of the Erasmus+ RMT project was included on the agenda of the June 23rd meeting, which was attended by 12 Regions and the National Erasmus+ Agencies. Because the valorisation of skills acquired during mobility experiences is an on-going process of reflexion, updated information will be issued regularly throughout the duration of the project.
