I-LINC best practices open call

I-LINC is building an extensive database of best practices.

We need your input

I-LINC is looking for forward looking projects and initiatives supporting youth employment and boosting young people’s digital and/or entrepreneurial skills.

Every effort is important for I-LINC! You can be working on a local, regional, international level and you can be focusing on one or more areas. What matters is your willingness and impact in ensuring a bright future for young people in the rapidly developing digital society.

Submitted practices must demonstrate some innovative aspects, proven impact (on a local, national or international level) and sustainability.
