StartNet Europe continues its dialogue, networking and advocacy! This time, European partners met in Madrid, where they were hosted by Lanzaderas de Empleo y Emprendimiento Solidario of the Fundacìon Santa Maria La Real and by Fundación Secretariado Gitano (FSG). Both organisations presented their successful programs of transition to work for young NEET and for Roma inclusion (Acceder). The visit to our partners in Spain was a great chance to take a closer look at the activities for a better #TransitionToWork. Partner initiatives were able to exchange good practices regarding outreach to young people who are socially excluded or NEET. In the Funding and Advovacy Lab we gave our network a deeper insight and update on current and future EU funding opportunities, especially Erasmus+, in view of joint applications. Fundacion Accenture explained their skill-tool Emplea+, permitting the assessment and monitoring of skills as well as autonomous learning through connected online learning modules.

Participating European partners were: Aliseo Liguria (Italy), Apprentis d'Auteuil (France), Education Department of the City of Mannheim (Germania), Education Department of the City of Turku (Finland), EPIC (Slovakia), KOST Tirol (Austria), Cometa (Italy), RuhrFutur (Germany), Școala de Valori (Romania), Consorzio per l'Innovazione Sociale NOVA (Italy).
