Related to first intelectual output, Web Plattform of Talented Europe, this application is fully developed and in its first phase of exploitation (http://talentedeurope.eu). A beta versión of the plattform was presented in our first Multiplier Event (Luton, UK, November 2016), then the fully functional versión was finished in early February 2017, to be tested and fixed for two months and finally presented at the Tenerife (Spain) Multiplier Event in April 2017. All the functionalities, resulting from the initial proposal along with the results and conclusions obtained from the analysis phase, have been implemented and tested. At present, the main efforts of the project partners regarding this Output are focused on the dissemination of the web platform and the incorporation of the largest number of stakeholders (students, academic institutions and companies). Technically, for the backend of this web application has been used the framework Laravel 5.2 with the version of PHP 5.5.9 and MariaDB 10.1 as database manager. In the frontend is used a hybrid model where the views have been developed with the Blade template engine, adding functionality using Vue.js 1.0.28. As a CSS preprocessor is used Sass. JavaScript files are written using the ES6 standard and are compiled to ES5 using Babel.

Talented Europe’s Blog has been updated.


Over the last several months, we have been working on our Erasmus+ KA2 project’s blog, Talented Europe. The main outcome of the project is a multiplatform application, online/onphone ‘app’. Our goal is to match top students to job and internship opportunities across Europe.
