The purpose of the project is to promote the employability of new graduates, which is linked to the current priority of Europe 2020 strategies. This should be done by strengthening the links between higher education and the labour market. The project is shaping the prerequisites for developing innovative teaching methods and authentic learning approaches, increasing cooperation between education and the labour market and spreading a replicable process in Europe that corresponds to the labour market competence requirements.

The official language of the event will be English, but there will also be parallel sessions in Swedish.
