Human capital and innovation: employment policies in local
and regional innovation networks for talent attraction and better job opportunities


Acronym: W4T


Project duration: January 2012 - December 2014

Aim: Working4Talent deals with employment policy issues related to the local and regional innovation systems. Innovation is not just a tool for competitiveness and growth, which therefore helps to create more and better jobs. Indeed it is, but it has also become a very important source of employment in itself.
This is evident in developed regions, where innovation demand (innovative companies, public and private research centers) has boosted the number of innovation-related jobs. In less developed regions, innovation demand is lower, and innovation-related jobs are not so abundant, driving many talented young people to emigration. The project will try to identify the employment policies responding to such new realities; policies that help matching talent supply and demand; policies providing the right incentives for talent creation and attraction, and to make talent mobility an instrument for talent growth.
