Staff exchange scheme (MobiliseSME)

The MobiliseSME project is a pilot mobility scheme that gives you the opportunity to take part in cross-border exchanges of staff. The scheme aims to improve cooperation and promote knowledge sharing between companies in different countries. The project is funded by the EU-programme for Employment and Social Innovation and the project partners.

How does it work?

Your company can either host an exchange or send a member of staff on an exchange. To take part you need to register at the matchmaking platform, where you can post the profile of the type of employee you are intending to send or host.

Once you connect with another company via the platform, you have to send your application to the corresponding national contact point (they will be allocated to you when you register) so your exchange can be validated.

The exchanges can be for the following periods: 2 weeks, 1 month, 1.5 months and 2 months. For the pilot scheme you can arrange to make exchanges up until the end of June 2017.

Who can apply?

Eligible countries

To take part in the scheme, your company must be based on one of the following countries:

  • EU countries
  • Candidate and potential candidate countries (Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo)
  • EEA countries and EFTA countries (Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway)

Hosting exchange partners

Any type or size of company can become a host and there is no limit to the amount of exchanges they can host.

Sending exchange partners

Only the following company types can apply to send staff on an exchange:

  • Micro businesses or SMEs
  • One-man enterprises
    (only the following liberal professions: lawyers, notaries, tax accountants, certified financial auditors, medical doctors, pharmacists, psychologists, architects, engineers)

Companies can send up to 2 members of staff on an exchange.
