Call for Proposals: EURES and PROGRESS Mobility Exchange programme for SME staff (MobiliseSME)

Deadline: 17 September 2019

Published under the Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) programme, the EU financing instrument at EU level to promote a high level of quality and sustainable employment, guaranteeing adequate and decent social protection, combating social exclusion and poverty and improving working conditions, this call focuses on two of the programme axes: 

  • the EURES axis: promoting workers' geographical mobility and boosting employment opportunities, with the following general objectives:
-Transparency of job vacancies, applications and any related information for jobseekers, workers and employers
-Development of services for the recruitment and placing of workers in employment
-Cross-border partnerships

and 

  • The PROGRESS axis with the following general objectives:
-Develop and disseminate high-quality comparative analytical knowledge
-Facilitate effective and inclusive information-sharing, mutual learning and dialogue 
-Provide financial support to test social and labour market policy innovations 
-Provide organisations with financial support to increase their capacity to develop, promote and support the implementation of EU instruments and policies

The general objective of the call is to support short term cross-border secondments for employees, managers and/or (co-) owners, in particular from small and medium companies. These secondments shall provide opportunities to develop skills and capacities in host companies (‘learning objective’), as well as for companies to enhance their business either by establishing new contacts abroad, or by strengthening their already existing partnerships (‘international business opportunity for SME’).

The total budget earmarked for the EU co-financing of projects under this call is estimated at EUR 2,050,000, with 95% EU co-financing rate. The Commission expects to fund 1 to 2 projects offering financial support to around 250 professionals identified for an exchange or a limited stay in another company.
