Asturias - ESF

Programme description

The Operational Programme (OP) 2014-2020 for the Principality of Asturias represents a total investment of € 109 million, of which € 87 million from the EU budget. The planned measures and actions aim to contribute to the achievement of the national 'Europe 2020' targets for achieving smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

Unemployment, especially amongst the long term unemployed and other disadvantaged groups at greatest risk of social exclusion has been identified as a key structural problem and the biggest challenge facing the region.

Investments under this OP aim to increase employment opportunities amongst the most vulnerable groups, stimulate and increase entrepreneurship, as well as increase the labour market participation of women in those sectors with a low female representation.

 Projects will seek to improve the employability of those furthest away from the labour market through integrated pathways for social and labour integration and by promoting employment measures as the principal means to combat social exclusion.

Other actions will aim at reducing the levels of early school leaving through personalised support. Projects in specialised centres will motivate and encourage pupils at risk as well as increase the quality of and participation levels in vocational training.
