During the three-year experimental period (2011-2014), the MOY pilot program for mobility of students and young professionals will pursue the following objectives :
- Labelling higher education training programmes of excellence that correspond to fields of Mediterranean interest, based on a call for proposals made to higher education teaching institutions in participating countries.
- To follow these training programmes, students from participating countries recruited by higher education institutions may benefit from a “Mediterranean Office for Youth” excellence grant. The beneficiaries of this grant will be given a “Mediterranean Office for Youth” label which will give them access to facilitation measures determined by participating countries concerning their entry into and stay in a country and the acquisition of an initial professional experience.
- Mobilising companies, Mediterranean networks and participating countries to ensure that MOY grant beneficiaries are sponsored for the entire duration of their studies, and give them access to an internship and employment platform.
- MOY grant beneficiaries will be offered the opportunity to participate in national skills mobilisation programmes in their country of origin.
