Supporting the YEP-MED project

The MEDports Association joins Escola Europea (Barcelona) to celebrate the selection of the YEP-MED project by the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI)! An amount of 3,000,000 euros of funds will be given for its development.

What is the YEP-MED project?

The Young Employment in Ports of the Mediterranean (YEP-MED) is a project to better match labour supply (skills available on the labour market) with labour demand (generated by the port logistics sector and productive economic growth).

Thanks to the YEP-MED project, it will be also possible to enhance further the cooperation between the two banks of Mediterranean Sea, which constitutes one of the most important aims of the Association.

The MEDports Association looks forward to the continuation of the work and the implementation of the project!
