In fact, some analysis conducted on this sector, even though indicating clearly a low and inadequate investment in new technologies, showed a good growth in terms of employment opportunities. Furthermore,the complex and critical situation of the labor market in the Calabria and Campania region, together with the geographical position, that looks isolated from the rest of Europe, indicates that the transnational mobility actions are largely needed especially for young Learners. They have, in fact,few opportunities to get experience, or sometimes they don’t have opportunities at all, and then they can’t make comparison with other European companies during their training path.Moreover, the lack of experience in the company reduces the possibility of entering the labor market.
