Youth unemployment has become one of Europe's greatest challenges since the start of the economic crisis in 2008. In January 2017, according to the Eurostat, 4.017 million young persons (under 25) were unemployed in the 28 member states of the European Union (a rate of 17.7%). One of the countries with the lowest rate is Germany (6.5%) while Spain has one of the highest Spain (42.2%).

This puts young people up front as a priority of the "Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth". Europe 2020 outlines concrete initiatives to support young people in getting jobs and dealing with challenges during the crisis, in particular making education and training more relevant and preparing students better for the transition from education to workplace.

Given this context, the project Skill Up - Matching graduates' skills and labour world demands through authentic learning scenarios aims to build scalable and replicable ways for connecting higher education curricula with evolving labour market demands. This will be achieved by way of transnational strategic cooperation between five partners from three European countries (Spain, Sweden and Germany) that include higher education and vocational education institutions and employers’ representatives.

With the Seminar "Connecting workplace and learning in higher education" the consortium of the project wants to make known the first results of the project by opening the dialogue to members of the academy, students, graduates and employers representatives.
