Project goals and objectives
The wider objective is to tackle the unemployment and lack of innovation due to a gap between labor market needs and skills of labor force. Changing conditions in the labor market must be matched by a continued development of the competencies of the workforce and enhance the social inclusion of people into active work life. This could mean learning new and appropriate skills within a current work field, re-education into new profession, or providing transversal skills that enables easier career shifts.
Therefore activities within this project include work with university and national policies, focusing on organization and work with LLL approaches. LLL is meant to increase the development of individuals and to influence the economic development by providing continuous training to the labor force. The project will produce a plan for a implementation framework for LLL in these countries.
