As part of the EU-funded EBSOMED project, the BUSINESSMED’s launch of the three thematic committees will be held in Barcelona, Spain on 20 November 2018, and that in order to create an environment favourable to Mediterranean growth, promote full North-South and South-South economic integration and implement efficient partnership networks.

These three committees will be focusing on:

  • Women and Youth Empowerment, for a cutting-edge and strategic support in women and youth programming in all development contexts;
  • Education and R&D, to foster research and support industrial R&D on new energy technologies and hence, improving energy technology policies;
  • Vocational Training, to monitor labour market trends and helping the European Commission, Euro-Mediterranean countries and employers’ organisations to match training provision to labour market needs.

Co-financed by the European Commission, EBSOMED is a 4-year project which was officially launched in June 2018 in Tunis. The project aims at boosting the Mediterranean business ecosystem and promoting inclusive economic growth and job creation, by enhancing the private sector environment and namely the Business Support Organisations in the Southern Neighbourhood countries.
