Event description
Learnings from the “NEETs in Entrepreneurship” Project

About this event

Between 2018 and 2021, 1,600 NEETs in Bulgaria, Italy, Romania and Spain received training and support to acquire the skills needed to find a job or start their own business. In addition, the project aimed to prevent another 1,000 young people enrolled in a vocational and technical education school from falling into the NEET category, by providing them with training and counseling.

Youth in the participating countries also had access to professional insertion activities, were invited to participate in core business incubation activities, and encourage open their own businesses.

Join us to learn about the project outcomes and lessons learnt, to build successful future initiatives and policies!
