  1. Management Accelerator Programme for Newcomers

    Project

    To support the labour market integration of highly-qualified newcomers, Vlerick Business School (project promotor) and Talentree (Flemish project partner) are working together on  the transnational ESF project  entitled ‘Management Accelerator Programme for Newcomers’. Vlerick Business School is a top-ranked European business school providing international education and research impact. Talentree is the jobplatform for international and multicultural talents in Belgium.Goal of this project is to develop an executive management programme for highly educated newcomers, in order to support them to find a job at expert/management level. The programme will be based on the ‘Rapid Acceleration Management program (RAMP)’ of the Stockholm School of Economics (transnational project partner). RAMP was designed to provide a fast track into the Swedish job market for qualifying graduates who have been granted asylum in Sweden. During one year, newly arrived university graduates are offered an intensive management training in ten weeks interspersed with an internship at a company operating in Sweden. The RAMP initiative supports diversity in Swedish industry and strengthens Swedish competitiveness through a more inclusive society.This transnational ESF project aims to translate RAMP to the Flemish context and to:Set up a EU network on the topic of integration of highly educated newcomersGather best practices in the respective countriesMutually learn & exchange knowledge in the network

  4. Talento-scope in non- profit

    Project

      The final project challenge  ‘TALENTO-SCOPE in social sector’ is: increasing the employment rate of individuals with special support needs in the care and welfare sector.   This employment rate is particularly low into the social profit sector in Flanders, so only 0.8% of the staff is disabled.   We will realize this by investing in the following major actions: Action 1: Targeted employers' awareness to engage in an active diversity policy to strengthen the growth of the organization. Action 2: The labor market actors build a tailor-made service that guarantees To act as a single point of contact for the employer if he has questions about recruitment, supervision, workplace learning, job retention, job creation, preventive team support in relation to our final target group. Action 3: To facilitate the new service by expanding or connecting to: Databases with single points of contact for employers, job management and support for employers, employees and job seekers. In doing this we seek maximum alignment with existing initiatives in Flanders. Action 4: Calculating the social gain and cost of realizing the new service.

  5. Transnational Training Programs Gastrologic Sciences and Primary Food Care

    Project

    The Action Group on Food & Nutrition, a subgroup of the A3 Group in the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA) has developed a common, integrated vision on the food and nutritional approach to frailty, taking into account also the impact of social integration and psychosocial behavior of the elderly. A main part in this common vision is called “Primary Food Care and the Gastrological Approach”. This vision has initially been developed as a response to the inefficiencies and inequalities in the approach of malnutrition and risk for malnutrition in European health care systems. Implementing and scaling up this common vision, including Primary Food Care, in European health care systems will be an important mission in the coming years. However, a successful implementation of the common vision, especially Primary Food Care and Gastrology, requires better trained chefs and kitchen staff, increased awareness of professional caregivers, inter-professional training and an interdisciplinary life-long-learning approach. Transnational cooperation is needed to share knowledge and experience in cultural differences in food and cooking processes.  We will offer a cluster of flexible training programs, including teasers (3 hours), workshops, one-day-trainings, short modules, shared care plans, summer courses and transnational transfers of knowledge.

  6. ACTi vering [act, action, resilience]

    Project

    The partnership between W13, three social enterprises and an academic partner was formed to tackle a paradox on labour and care needs at the local labour market. They decided to start ACTi vering [act, action, resilience], a participative action research project that explores:the development of a methodology around the innovative approaches applied by the project partners;the key-success-factors, denominating the decisive elements;the determining conditions, mapping the defining elements that are essential for up-scaling and mainstreaming.To enable better support to more people in need of supported or sheltered employment that balances labour and care.  People who would benefit from an activating ‘place’, either as time-out, a trampoline or a final solution, that enables them to stay socially involved in society. A place where they receive tailormade guidance unregarded the nature or origin of their needs. For example, not limitative, people with disabilities, mental illness or disorder, long-term unemployed or ill, people recovering from substance abuse or people living in poverty or situations of social exclusion.

  7. SMErec- New generation recruitment skills for SMEs and workforce

    Project

    This project aims at promoting the competitiveness of Finnish companies located in two different economic regions during the current technological reform. To achieve this goal, the purpose is to develop indicators supporting a company’s human resources strategies as well as other tools to be applied during a recruitment process. The goal is to provide small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) both science-based and practice-based innovative selection methods used as a recruiting tool. The ultimate objective is to make recruitment successful.The competitiveness and uniqueness of the solutions developed in form of tools during the project is based on the novelty value, since no similar systems are known to be used by educational institutions or other communities with as large an amount of highly educated labour.The transnational cooperation in the SMErec project is strongly characterised by the practise- based nature of cooperation. In practice, the cooperation is implemented by those employees who are engaged in similar duties in their own work in Southwest Finland, North Karelia and other project countries. This provides an opportunity to have the best spread of good practices and ideas from country to country and from area to area.As a result, the recruitment expertise in the companies involved in the project will be enhanced, new digital tools will be acquired to be used by companies as help in their recruitment processes, and the attractiveness of the companies as employers will increase as well as potential applicants’ awareness of these companies.During the project, Karelia UAS will develop a new type of technological competence for the career guidance of students, and the students and companies will gain experience and courage to take advantage of digitality during the recruitment process.As a result of the Turku UAS subproject, all students of Turku UAS will be provided with a web- based competence platform including a database for creating one’s virtual CV.As a result of the JOSEK Ltd subproject, information on the prerequisites of companies in various fields of expertise to grow will be gathered and competence-based views of the recruitment process will be acquired. In addition, the content and functionality of the digital tool for recruitment will be developed.The goal is to have the digital tools developed during the project to be used as part of national and international employment services (e.g. Yritys-Suomi, EURES). Then, the new, innovative digital tools could be utilised regardless of time and place.

  9. wE-c@re: strengthening healthcare professionals in 21st century digital skills

    Project

     About Curando: Curando is a non-profit organization offering integrated care services from home care to residential elderly care services in the western part of Flanders, the Dutch speaking region in Belgium (about 900 employees and 450 volunteers). As all healthcare organizations, we are facing important changes brought on by an aging population, changing in regulation, as well as rapid advances in technology improving health for patients, and enabling new care regimens. Examples of challenges we are facing in Belgium and in our organization are electronic exchanging health data, electronic healthcare records, eHealth, mobile health, wearables,… Curando is an innovative organization looking to respond on this challenges but also seizing opportunities. But, with this increasingly growing digitalization, we need to be aware of the impact on our staff, our caregivers, nurses and paramedics. How can we enable them to face these change and reinforce them. That is why we are working on a project, funded by the European Social Fund (ESF). Our project proposal, called wE-c@re, was approved by ESF for the next step.   About WE-c@re With this project, Curando wants to create a innovative learning environment where caregivers are stimulated to develop 21st century skills, more specific digital literacy.To achieve this goal, Curando wants to focus on and integrate 3 aspects: the healthcare lab, innovative learning  methods and a user-friendly and accessible digitization of the work- and learning environment. 1. The healthcare labThe lab is a physical space, whether or not movable, where innovative care technologies are presented. A visit will give caregivers the opportunity to explore the future of their own work context.2. Innovative learning methodesBased on the need for 21st century skills, a lack of time to organize a lot of classroom education for caregivers and an increasing belief in the combination of different learning methods, we want to use innovative learning methods to develop these skills.3. user-friendly and accessible digitization of the work- and learning environmentWe want a user-friendly and accessible digitalization of the work- and learning environment. Installing triggers on the workfloor should challenge people on a daily basis to learn to deal with innovative digital tools. The deliverable of the project will be a useful toolbox that will be made available to both Flemish and European interested parties.
