Kahramanmaras Metropolitan Municipality (Turkey), member of the Assembly of European Regions, is preparing a project proposal as lead partner in the framework of the Employment and Social Innovation EaSI programme aimed to promote a high level of quality and sustainable employment, guaranteeing adequate and decent social protection, combating social exclusion and poverty and improving working conditions.
The call addressed by this project is “Fast track integration into the labour market for third country nationals targeting exclusively asylum seekers, refugees and their family members – VP/2016/015” which might be shared by other AER member regions being the topic of migrants and refugees very high in the AER agenda and discussions.
The objectives of this Call are:
• to promote the development and testing of innovative and effective mechanisms to ensure fast-track integration into the labour market
• to develop sustainable multi-level partnerships models conducive towards the integration of the targeted groups into the labour market
• to foster knowledge- and experience-sharing between different Member States of already functioning swift and successful insertion mechanisms into the labour market of the targeted groups, with a strong emphasis on the challenges faced by women
Kahramanmaras Metropolitan Municipality is now looking for partners to complete the consortia, which should be public bodies, profit or non-profit-making private entities, or international organisations established and registered in EU Member States, Iceland and Norway in accordance with the EEA Agreement, Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.
The deadline of this call for project proposals is 30th March.
We wish to share within AER network the partner search of Kahramanmaras Metropolitan Municipality, therefore if you are interested to know more about this opportunity and/or to join the project do not hesitate to get in touch with AER Secretariat by 21st February.
