Current European Projects 

 

Meath Partnership is currently working with over 60 organisations across Europe in 16 new and existing projects funded under the Erasmus+ (2014-2020) and by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) of the European Unio.

Jobs for Work 4.0 - The Future of Employment

 

The overall objective of our project is to raise awareness about recent trends and developments in technology which may make jobs in certain sectors less secure in the future; such as the automation of practices in transportation, logistics, production and office administration which may lead to individuals employed in these sectors being susceptible to their jobs being automated in the future. The project aims to inform guidance professionals and individuals in vulnerable occupations about the challenges they will face, to help them to understand the pace at which automation and the “Internet of Things” will lead to changes and also to support them in identifying how entirely new job families will emerge while others will become obsolete.  This project also aims to support these professionals in planning suitable qualification pathways to address the demands of the current and future labour market.

BRAMIR.jpeg

BRAMIR - Beyond Retirement - A Migrants Integration Resource

 

The BRAMIR Project proposes a mutually beneficial arrangement affording the seniors target group an opportunity to remain active contributors to society while addressing the growing migrant integration problem.  The BRAMIR project addresses two certainties for all EU Member States, namely; the ageing of the population and an increasing dependence on immigration as a potential talent pool to sustain the civic, social, political and economic fabric of the EU. While there is considerable variance with regard the speed and immediacy of these changes within and between Member States, they are coming and will impact all countries in the not too distant future.  Therefore, the project proposes the development and implementation of a multi-layered andragogic framework designed for a seniors target group comprising older workers approaching retirement and recent retirees to support them to become migrant integration resources to newly arrived migrants.

ACUMEN Project Logo.png

ACUMEN - Career Management Skills - A New 'Literacy'​ for Sustainable Employment

 

This project aims to revolutionise career guidance for adults.  The ACUMEN project team are of the opinion that traditional career guidance which is often targeted at school-students in classrooms is not fit-for-purpose for application to adult learners who are already active or have been active in the labour market.  As such the team aims to provide a wide range of educational materials that are designed and developed with the latest digital technologies and platforms in mind and which promote 'career management' as a new literacy for adults, rather than relying on the practices of career guidance.

These projects have been co-funded with support from the European Union under the Erasmus+ Programme (2014-2020) and the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) of the European Union
