SeniorForce: Mobility for Older Workers in the EU

Project led by Aarhus Employment Services (DK), with DEP, Krakow, Budapest, Helsinki and Athens, was approved by the European Commission in December 2007. Dublin budget €12,000 over 18 months. Aim is to increase mobility of older workers (50+) in the EU by piloting a services support system and undertaking transfers to jobs abroad by interested participants. A Dublin Steering Group was established involving lead partners DEP, together with Age Action Ireland, Manpower, Dublin City Council, the Larkin Centre, Partas and FAS/EURES. Due to the economic crisis which hit in late 2008, the project experienced considerable difficulties. Nevertheless, some success was achieved. The project completed in 2009.
