The project

Funded by the European Commission Programme "Investing in People", ELOISE aimed at designing, implementing and developing suitable tools as to adjust and re-design inclusive active labour market policies targeting specific and vulnerable groups in the partner countries (Ivory Coast, Morocco, Peru).

The project idea arose from the experiences made in Piedmont in the field of the LMIS and social inclusion policy and its willing to share its knowledge and practices with other contexts in a particular critical period due to the global economic crisis, which threaten the most vulnerable groups to be excluded from the labour market.

The approach used was based on knowledge, study and exchange of practices gained in the partner countries and the EU countries and on sharing of models in order to transfer the best experiences in the socio-economic systems involved in the action. Given to the different contexts, the partners, who worked actively in labour policies and LMIS, were strongly interested in sharing their experiences being aware that a sound and transparent LMIS can be a valuable tool to match short-term objectives (matching of demand and supply of labour) with medium and long-term ones (design and appliance of adequate social inclusion policies and instruments).

Objective

The specific objective of the action was to encourage the interregional investigation on the existing LMIS as to facilitate the transfer of existing methodologies, tools and best practices from more experienced regions to less advanced ones. ELOISE helped create a transnational network which involved, in addition to the institutional partners of the project, all public and private stakeholders from the target countries concerned on LMIS and policies of inclusion.
