In the last weeks, a new call for project proposals was published under the Employment Social Affairs & Inclusion (EaSI) programme. The call covers a Preparatory Action titled “Reactivate” and aimed at testing an intra-EU labour market activation measure to support the inclusion of EU unemployed citizens aged 35+ in the labour market.
The end beneficiaries will be jobseekers and job changers and trainees aged 35+, as well recruiting enterprises, including SMEs. Applicant organisations are free to choose the activities, methods and tools etc. to implement their action. The action supported by the projects shall:
- carry out outreach and information activities towards target groups and in particular to employers and other stakeholder organisations;
- provide information on the Reactivate work opportunities and support available to the EU citizens over 35 years;
- establish cooperation with other organisations willing to act as information multipliers;
- test the feasibility of the services and support measures above also for placement of candidates in traineeships in another country.
The deadline for submitting applications is set for 5th September 2018 and the signature of Grant Agreements is expected to take place in November 2018. The total budget earmarked for the EU co-financing of projects under this call is estimated at 5.000.000 euros.
