FIER: Fast-track Integration in European Regions


Everyone has talents that can be used at work and can enhance confidence and esteem! Innovative fast-track integration to the labour market is an important challenge for regions. Through the FIER project (EU funded under EaSI), regions from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Turkey exchange and develop strategies to support integration in the labour market while addressing social and economic cohesion. An interactive workshop is planned and online connections will be made with Turkey (YUVA works with Syrian refugees near the border) and with Sweden, to the Support Group Network (refugees supporting refugees) where participants will experience real testimonies.


Wednesday, October 10

11.30 - 13.00 | Permanent Delegation of Brittany (Maison de la Bretagne)
Investing in People for a Regional and European Success


VET and adult education have a key role in shaping skills for regional development: skills are a driving force for economic and social development. To meet the EU's post-2020 policy objectives for cohesion, development and competitiveness, the role of education, VET, adult education and skills matching will be crucial. This requires public authorities at regional, national and European level to take an innovative approach involving all relevant stakeholders. The workshop will include a keynote from the European Commission on its post-2020 priorities (investing in human capital), followed by a panel discussion with regional representatives with the aim of gaining practical, hands-on conclusions and recommendations for regional and EU policy-makers.
