 REGISTER YOUR ORGANIZATION ON SEND MOBILITY PLATFORM and BE PART OF SOCIAL INNOVATION!


What is about? “Universities for EU projects” foresees the implementation of n.165 traineeships for University students and n. 14 training periods for HEI staff. The project is carried out by the Mobility Consortium, coordinated by SEND, a job agency and international mobility centre, in partnership with 15 Universities from 9 Italian Regions and 2 organizations, the Foundation garagErasmus and the business incubator ARCA.

For further information about the criteria to participate, visit the page Hosting Organizations.

What does Social Innovation stand for? Social Innovation is a wide growing sector at European level, which includes different professional profiles such as the project manager, the management engineer, the financial administrator, the responsible in communication, the sociologist, the psychologist, the business consultant, the fund- and people-raiser, the social influencer, the computer scientist, the architect, the graphic and web designer, the expert in international and European law etc…

In other words, it includes all the jobs which trigger positive social and economic changes within the local community

Why join? This is a great opportunity to enrich the skills and the know-how of your organization in the field of Social Innovation with trained resources, specialized in the different fields. Moreover, this is a chance to internationalize your staff, as well as to foster the mobility in Europe and the cooperation between Higher Education and the labour market. Look at the “Guidelines for Hosting Organizations”!

The trainees are University students (first, second or third level) or recent graduates or teaching and non-teaching staff of Higher Education Institutes, motivated in spending a training period abroad and in developing their skills and competences.

What are the costs? All costs will be covered by the project. Participants are granted by “UNIVERSITIES FOR EU PROJECTS” funded by the ERASMUS + _Higher Education individual mobility programme. The Grant covers travel, subsistence and insurance costs.  

What are the duties? The SEND Mobility Consortium will deal with all the phases of the mobility. Thanks to its mobility platform the matching between your organization and the most suitable candidate/s will be easier!! 

Moreover the platform provides different services related to the preparation and the training of both hosting organizations and participants, in order to improve the quality mobility system.

The Hosting Organization has just three simple duties: 1)before the mobility it has to agree and sign the Learning Agreement with the trainee and the University, he/she belongs to; 2) once the mobility is started it has to fill in and send the Letter of Arrival, which proofs the beginning of the traineeship, 3) at the end of the mobility it has to fill in and sign the Traineeship Certificate. That’s all : ) !

Hositng organizations will be, then, contacted directly by the students and you will have time to consider their CVs and Motivation letter and do a skype interview.
