CLUSTER publishes its Capitalization Strategies on youth employment in sustainable sectors


  1. The first best practice in international cooperation projects involves using e-learning platforms for remote training. This approach offers cost savings by eliminating the need for physical travel, making it more accessible for those in remote areas. E-learning also provides flexibility, enhanced communication, and adaptability across different projects and countries, making it a valuable asset in international cooperation.
  2. The second practice emphasizes a bottom-up approach in training design, particularly for NEETs in Mediterranean countries. Involving local partners and stakeholders ensures that training programs align with local context and needs, making them more effective.
  3. The third best practice underscores the importance of needs assessment in training design. A preliminary gap analysis in partner countries helps identify knowledge and skill deficits, guiding the customization of training content to meet specific needs.


These best practices, as detailed in this publication, serve as valuable guidelines for effective and context-specific international cooperation and training program design, with an emphasis on cost-effectiveness, local engagement, and needs-driven approaches.
