According to the European Commission, in the second quarter of 2014 over 5 million young people (under 25) were unemployed in the EU-28. This represents an unemployment rate of 21.7% (23.2% in the euro area), which is more than twice as high as the adult unemployment rate (9.0%). Unemployment among youths has been a top priority for EU countries. One of the reasons for the unemployment is the lack of entrepreneurial spirit and skills amongst young people. The elaborated innovative method under the current project idea will create and develop in youth people transversal skills that are crucial in dealing with unemployment and lack of working skills.
