On 11th April, EPA – European Projects Association asbl organized its most exciting event in the first half of 2018 “European Talented Initiatives – challenges and opportunities”.
In collaboration with ALDE, the event has been organized at the European Parliament by EPA’s Secretary General Frederic Fabre, and facilitated by Out Of The Box International CEO Marko Paunović, within the framework of Erasmus+ co-funded project ‘Talented Europe’.
“European Talented Initiatives – challenges and opportunities” event has been dedicated to discussing how the regional perspective could influence success of young talented people in Europe, and how regional development funds along with other EU funding mechanisms could approach this issue, during which, our speakers Ivan JAKOVCIC, Sergio DELGADO QUINTERO, Marko PAUNOVIC, Louis DELCART, Marcin PODGORSKI, Diana FILIP, and Peter BAUR shared their project findings.
Moreover, to engage both panellists and participants into discussion, the event has been used to introduce findings of the project ‘’Talented Europe’’, during which Marko Paunović presented three winners of the “Out Of The Box” awards to honor innovative ideas promoting the European dream. All recommendations discussed and given throughout the event are now currently being incorporated into a report “New ways to support Talent around Europe’’, with the purpose of providing fresh ideas on how political actors could address youth issues in the light of European Parliamentary elections in 2019.
Teachers of University of Prešov (Prešov, Slovakia) participated in a very inspirational Multiplier event organised by TUKE (the Slovak partner of Talented Europe) in October 2017 in Košice, Slovakia. They appreciated and promoted the venue in the Prešov University magazine Na pulze.
The topics of event workshops – job interview, time management, personal integrity and talent – are rather hot today with young generation, especially those launching their careers. Young people must understand the importance of displaying their talents, skills and qualities in the shop-window of a job market. Therefore the participants find the core of the project (= to emphasize, verify and spread one´s talent) a very interesting and prospective idea for university students as well as universities themselves. The role of educational institution is irreplaceable in this strategy for they are to guarantee quality of their students and this way the universities can also promote themselves.
The project output – Talented Europe webplatform and application, which the event participants could get familiar with under competent guidance of the Spanish authors, may be a very helpful tool for students to promote their talents/skills. On the other hand, this could be an attractive and easy way for employers to find a quality employee or intern. The Prešov University welcomes the opportunities the platform offers and is open for cooperation in the future.
This Thursday, on 12 October 2017, the Technical University will host the third multiplier event within the TALENTED EUROPE project. It will be a meeting point for all three sides involved in the project:
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 🙂
