TRANSNATIONAL EUROPEAN LABOUR MARKET INTEGRATION T.. (TELMI)
TRANSNATIONAL EUROPEAN LABOUR MARKET INTEGRATION THROUGH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES
Start date: Mar 31, 2006,

Recognition of the freedom of movement for workers and employees within the EU also entails that the foundations for better mobility of EU and non-EU citizens have to be laid, especially after EU enlargement. Some recent surveys point out how a lack of appropriate information can cause an uneven distribution of immigrants among EU countries. Here Public Employment Services (PES) have to work together with other actors responsible for territorial development to improve the quality of their services and to guarantee an optimised distribution of the labour force. New information technologies could play a decisive role in this process. The TELMI project aims at tackling the problems of territorial disparities among old and new EU Member States, focusing on the labour market. It aims at setting up PES which should provide job-matching measures with new information and communication technologies (ICT). The project originates from the critical needs that the regions are facing highlighted by the participating institutions led by the Lombardy region. PES are particularly important for regions where the social implications on sustainability, workforce mobility and equal opportunities play a strategic role. The TELMI project is based on the activities carried out by the Lead Partner, which implemented the PES Model BorsaLavoroLombardia. The project is intended to build up similar systems in the partner regions. In addition, an extension to a broader network of user categories is planned. Expected Results: The main activities and results of the project are labour market analyses, benchmarking of job-matching best practices, networking of actors, transfer of the adapted BorsaLavoro model to the project countries, training of operators, interoperability between local system and a web portal. The job seekers will be provided with job-matching services in their region, which is connected to an interregional search tool. The project fosters the use of ICTs providing efficient services and gives people living far from urban centres the opportunity to access the most recent labour market information. TELMI will improve the networking of employment agencies in partner regions. A new model of integrated services targeted to each territory according to its specific aspects will be defined. By organising training activities the competences of local actors should be enhanced. Moreover, TELMI promotes the harmonisation of labour and training systems, leading to EU and non-EU Member States integration in the CADSES area.
