Project Information

What is GETM3?

GETM3 – Global Entrepreneurial Talent Management 3 – is a project that focuses on young talent as a key driver of future development, developed through co-operation of 3 stakeholders: employers (inc MNC & SME’s), universities and students/graduates. Despite a widely recognized importance of young talent (e.g. Europe 2020), its potential remains largely untapped. They are educated and entrepreneurial and yet experience instability in employment. At the same time, employers report skills mismatch and difficulties with attracting, managing and retaining young talent. To tackle this paradoxical situation, an innovative, multi-perspective approach is needed, reinforced by our 15 partner consortium; comprising of a transnational, inter-disciplinary, inter-generational, gender balanced and inter-sectorial research team.

  11. To generate new ideas through co-creative workshops held at NU’s Innovate facility in the Northern Design Centre during UNN Sandpits
  12. To gain a better understanding of employers’ expectations and needs regarding young employees and graduates’ competencies and skills (for engineering and business graduates).
  13. To identify the content of the employer’s side of psychological contract, e.g. how do they perceive their obligations and what are they willing to offer to young employees.
