Project description

The declining interest in metal professions, with simultaneous high youth unemployment in some EU countries and the associated lack of prospects, formed the background and motivation for this strategic EU partnership project.

The two-year ERASMUS+ project, as a strategic partnership of five partner organisations from five countries, aimed to increase the commitment of SMEs in acquiring suitable young skilled workers for metal professions. Involved were five partner organisations, besides IBBF as the German coordinator, from Spain, Italy, Poland and Lithuania.

In the course of 2019 and 2020, a total of three workshop weeks were held in Lithuania, Spain and Poland, which enabled an intensive exchange between the individual partners as well as their networking with experts.

As an important result, the partners decided to intensify the work and to dedicate their strategic partnership to the development of innovative content. The joint experience and project results will be used in the new EU project CEMIVET. Please contact the project coordinator Ms Christine Schmidt for an intention to cooperate or for general interest in the project.
