  • COMPANIES. With this project, they can find the talented work force they are looking for.
  • EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, whose first aim is to ensure employability of their under/graduates at the highest possible level.
  • STUDENTS. All of them want to find a good and suitable job.

There will be around 60-70 participants from all of the above-mentioned categories. Upon registration, all participants will receive promotional products which we are preparing right now, as you can see in the photo 🙂

After the break, you will have a chance to listen to our first speaker, Lucia Duchyňová. She has experience in areas of human resources, recruitment, business development and  business coaching. Her presentation is called “MAGENTA, not just a color“. Lucia will come to the ME as a representative of T-Systems Slovakia – the company she works for.  T-Systems is a major employer of young university graduates in the Košice region.

We will be delighted to introduce our second speaker, Petra Bajusová. She is a holder of Six Sigma Black Belt certificate and is experienced in project consultancy  and lean methodology. Petra will attend our multiplier event as a representative of iGrow Network. Her talk is called “Lean as a tool of success“.

After a short coffee break with some refreshments for all involved, our third speaker will be Peter Šipoš. He specializes in management, information technology, accounting and financial analysis. Peter´s talk will be called “The integrity of the personality“ and he will focus on connections between education and work using his own life and work experience.

Our last speaker will be Mariana Račková, a university teacher and assistant professor. She specializes in social psychology, creativity and personality psychology. Her talk is called “We ARE ABLE TO do it…but WHY?“ and it will be led in Slovak language. Mariana  represents the Technical University of Košice, which is one of the biggest universities in Slovakia.

These will be followed by a workshop for the participants. This will be a chance for our audience to register at the Talented Europe platform website, as well as download and install the mobile app. Talented Europe will make you connected!

You will also have a chance to evaluate the whole meeting by filling out our questionnaires. Your feedback is very important for us and will be much appreciated.

Afterwards, the icing on the cake will come 🙂 You will be free to enjoy the lunch prepared for our participants, speakers, and project partners while (we hope) having a nice talk with one another about what you have learned about the project.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Košice!

Talented Europe Next Meeting in Košice


Slovak project team from Technical University

Members of the project partner from Technical University of Košice are busy preparing  the next get-together of all the Talented Europe project partners and supporters in Košice, Slovakia, in October 2017. The meeting will be aimed at promoting the project outcomes to students, companies, and educational institutions.

The 5th Transnational Meeting, where we will officially welcome our new partner, Belgian Out of the Box International, into our project team, will take place on Tuesday&Wednesday, 1011 October 2017.  It will be held on the academic campus of the University.

On Thursday 12 October 2017, the Technical University of Košice will host the third Multiplier Event. It will serve as a meeting place for companies, students, and educational institutions. With Talented Europe,

  • companies will be able to promote their business and attract talented work force,
  • students will have a chance to find a good job,
  • educational institutions will find a way how to enhance the future career of their undergraduates and graduates.

All of this can be done simply by using the Talented Europe platform. The speakers will give presentations and run workshops about various work-related and job-related issues such as human resources, obstacles in finding a good job, what (not) to do at a job interview and many other interesting topics. Our Spanish project coordinators from Tenerife will give a talk about the project platform. They will also present our newly-launched mobile phone app, its advantages and process of registration.

We are currently working on agenda drafts, Multiplier event outline and general management of the meeting in Slovakia. We will keep you updated with the details very soon 🙂

As part of the official agenda, Sergio Delgado Quintero (from IES Puerto de la Cruz) showed the main aspects of the project Talented Europe, explaining the different intellectual outputs, the meetings that have been taken, the aims and future of the project. Actually there were a lot of questions regarding the use cases of the web application. This is quite important for us since it proves a big interest of the audience. Sergio Delgado encouraged the listeners to sign up into the application and to promote the project within their own educational institutions.
