Here are a few projects that I’m currently involved with.
Project design and proposals writing; I wrote four successful proposals: three financed by the European Commission and one financed by ESF. As proposal manager I oversaw all proposal activities, managing proposal schedules and deadlines, developing proposal contents and compliance matrix, and monitoring the progress of the proposal.
I developed risk assessment and survey plan and tools, and developed evidence based strategies and interventions for youth employment, training, and mobility.
“Your first EURES job” aims to help both young people to find a job in any of the EU-28 Member States and companies to recruit from another EU Member State. The action will provide advisory, job search, recruitment and financial support to both young jobseekers and job changers aged 18-30 willing to work in another EU Member State and businesses (SMEs in particular) recruiting young European workers and providing them with an integration programme. www.yourfirsteuresjob.eu

Network of Mutual Exchange for Supporting Innovation
I developed the project concept and wrote a successful proposal financed by the European Commission. Additionally, I developed the toolkit conceived to offer a complete guide on how to apply the NeMESI methods and how to organise similar activities in different frameworks. It contains a detailed description of the tools prepared and tested during the project, like the peer review methodology, the action learning and exchange workshops, implementation plan template, peer review template, good practice exchange guidelines, supporting tools and questionnaires used to collect inputs and feedbacks from the involved stakeholders, etc. and guidelines on how to implement them.
The Network of Mutual Exchange for Supporting Innovation is supported by the Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion DG of the EU Commission in the frame of the PROGRESS programme (Call VP/2012/009).
The Network identified best practices in the following fields:
- How to identify skill gaps in SMEs through effective collaboration between sectors in the ICT and the green economy. Overcoming organisational barriers and obstacles for partnership.
- Role of different sectors and organisations in identification of skills needs and skill matching. Developing a forward-looking HR and skills development policy through cooperation.
- Addressing current and structural challenges of competence development, such as the competition for qualified personnel.
- Unlocking financial and non financial means to improve skills needs identification and skills matching.
