It will contribute to:
-take stock of actions already undertaken in this area in the Euro-Mediterranean region,

This Seminar is held within the framework of the RESUME project which is an international cooperation project promoted by UNIMED and financed by the European Commission within the Erasmus + programme. RESUME aims at enhancing and reinforcing the role and potential of HEIs in the development of employability in the Mediterranean countries by adopting a transversal entrepreneurial mind-set at the higher education instittions and by opening and structuring the dialogue among the universities, the enterprises and the policy makers.
