Young and old professionals join forces against youth unemployment

Work scientists at Ruhr-Universität Bochum have launched their new EU project “Enterprise+”

Experienced executives encourage entrepreneurial spirit of young professionals

Young professionals who are starting their own business create new jobs not only for themselves, but potentially also for other people in the same age bracket. Striving to make a contribution to the reduction of youth unemployment in Europe, work scientists at Ruhr-Universität Bochum and economy educationalists at University Duisburg-Essen support this strategy. Experienced executives will nurture the entrepreneurial spirit of young professionals in Greece, Spain, Lithuania, Hungary, and Bulgaria. The joint project “Enterprise+ – Innovative Potential Meets Experience” is sponsored with 450,000 Euro by the EU programme “Erasmus+”, and it is conducted by Dr Martin Kröll, Institute of Work Science at Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

Duration of the project 1/09/2014 -31/08/2017
