More and more European countries acknowledge the issue of youth unemployment and make youth employment a priority, focusing on their potential to grow and contribute to the EU’s growth at large.
In this subject, the project “Lost Millennials: Transnational research network for the evaluation of initiatives targeting 25+ NEETs” directs its activities. Furthermore, between June 8th and 9th, project partners successfully materialized the 2nd transnational meeting in Bodo of Norway, with Nord University being the host of the in-person meeting. This was the first face-to-face event of the partnership.
What happened in the 2nd transnational meeting?
The Lost Millennials project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment and is oriented towards contributing to labor inclusion, by increasing knowledge on the effects of employment initiatives on 25+ NEETs. In particular, the consortium focuses on the target group of young people from small rural areas; between the age of 25 and 29 that are out of employment or lack education and training (NEETs).
In the 2nd transnational meeting, each partner of the consortium had opportunity to examine the project’s progress. In particular, project partners:
- Participated in team workshops and training. Moreover, among the training sessions there was one on evaluation methods.
- Discussed the project activities that have been finalized, along with the goals.
- Set the deadlines of the upcoming activities.
- Discussed the next steps to be followed.
In addition, there was time given to address questions pertinent to project procedures. Finally, the meeting concluded, with partners discussing, working, and setting the next steps for the outputs’ delivery.
In September 2022, the Lost Millennials partners will meet again in Spain. Browse the official Lost Millennials website for more information.
