MobiliseSME, a new cross-border business mobility scheme has been approved and will work for the following two years under the European Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EASI).
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
MobiliseSME is the second pilot project that will be implemented and will test intra mobility of employees and workers within the European Union over two years (2020-2022).
The main objective is to support short-term cross-border secondments (from 1 to 6 months) for employees, managers, and/or (co-)owners, in particular from Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
Within these secondments, employees from SMEs will have the opportunity to develop skills and capacities with other peers, as well as for companies to enhance their business either by establishing new contacts abroad, by strengthening their already existing partnerships, or by developing new ideas or technologies.
Other more specific objectives are:
- Boost the internationalisation of EU SMEs, their products, and services by providing the tools, information, and tailored strategies that match their needs and peculiar features.
- Enhance the competitiveness of EU SMEs by providing them with a scheme that can open them to new markets and establish new partnerships within the rules of the European Single Market.
- Establish a common methodology at the EU level for a mobility scheme for SME staff.
- Raising awareness of the benefits and gains that can be obtained by SMEs under internationalisation process.
