Managing talent is one of the main priorities for business. SMEs, however, often don’t have HR departments or the experience and expertise to manage a skill management process to overcome competencies gaps.
NeMESI has been conceived to promote policy learning and transfer processes across Europe in identification of skill needs through effective collaboration between sectors and improvement of the skill supply and demand management for the benefit of SMEs in the ICT and Green Economy sectors.
Such processes encompass quality and effectiveness improvement of regional policies through active trans-regional cooperation around Europe.
Moreover, they support mutual learning on innovative policy measures and practices and promote transfer into other regional systems.
One of the main project assets is a Best Practices database in which most significant experiences are collected, as a result of skill gap management activities performed worldwide and – particularly – in the European Union.
