Call for proposals 2017 - Preparatory action: Reactivate - Intra-EU job mobility scheme for unemployed over 35 VP/2017/012 Closed!


The objective of the call is to ensure the continuity of the preparatory action for the second year. The action aims to test the feasibility of an intra-EU job mobility scheme for the age group above 35 for the placement of EU citizens over 35 years in jobs, traineeships or apprenticeships in an EU country other than their country of residence.

The action will prioritise citizens who are in a vulnerable situation in the labour market, notably unemployed people, including long-term unemployed.


The action supported by the projects shall:

  • carry out outreach and information activities towards target groups and in particular to employers and other stakeholder organisations interested in sharing opportunities, offers or job vacancies with the consortium;
  • provide information on the Reactivate work opportunities and support available to the EU citizens over 35 years;
  • establish cooperation with other organisations willing to act as information multipliers on Reactivate e.g. trade unions, employers' associations, chambers of commerce, vocational and education organisations, etc.
  • develop and deliver a comprehensive, tailor-made package of mobility services, combining customized activation measures with direct financial support to both the target group of EU citizens over 35 years of age and employers (in particular SME's);
  • include at least, as activation measures within this package, information and assistance with offers and vacancies, matching these with candidates and the preparation of the placement/recruitment in a number of Member States involving jobs, apprenticeships and/or traineeships;
  • provide one or more items of direct financial support to both the target group of EU citizens over 35 years of age and employers (in particular SME's);
  • test the feasibility of the services and support measures above also for placement of candidates in traineeships and/or apprenticeships in another country,

  • Traineeships
