The employment target of 75% of 20-64 year-olds under the Europe 2020 Strategy has met with further difficulties dictated by the economic recession. For this reason, full inter-operability is required among all Member States to make sure that the resources and the skills of each State contribute to a job rich recovery.
To foster this recovery, numerous projects have been launched and promoted by the European Commission: a way to facilitate mobility, matching and recruitment.
Youth on the Move
