The aim is to create new jobs and develop business in participating companies.


The aim of the project is to create and test a new kind of an approach for activating students / soon-to-be-graduated persons with experienced and skilled job seekers. Motivated and energised workgroups are established to solve identified growth challenges of local business. As a result of the project, work opportunities will be created for those looking for employment.

Individuals will activate themselves in innovating their own future based on their own skills, capabilities and experience. “Stages” are offered for working together with local companies. The project will utilise the expertise that is available on unemployment. The target is to create new jobs especially in microenterprises and SMEs.
