EDU-LAB New Danubian Governance in Labour market Relevance of Higher Education


EDU-LAB is a project funded by the European Union aiming to improve the professional chances of young people in the Danube region.

The starting point for developing a new mindset is capacity development. EDU-LAB brings together partners from the higher education sector, business organizations, national public authorities and policy makers. This joint learning process will include further actors from civil society.

More than 20 partners from 10 countries will cooperate for 2,5 years to link education to employment in a sustainable way. A new governance model will be developed with the goal to create a binding commitment by the “Danubian Charter for young talents”.
