HOMERe is an internship programme based on a well-established network of 34 academic, business and professional organisations present in the Mediterranean region. The 18-month project aims at boosting the mobility of young talented students/graduates from Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia by offering internship opportunities in companies based in France and operating in the target countries. HOMERe is part of the MPF Pilot Projects on Legal Migration seeking to contribute to the delivery of the European Agenda on Migration.

Activities

Pre-departure

Up to 250 students/graduates will be selected and matched with companies based in France and operating in Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia in diverse sectors such as: Information Communication and Technology (ICT), blue economy, tourism, climate, energy, entrepreneurship and administration.

Mobility

HOMERe supports candidates in the preparation of their internship and throughout their entire stay by ensuring that the host company mentors each intern. The project will only consider internship offers with prospects of recruitment in the partner country, for assignments of up to six months, upon nomination of a local advisor and including a monthly allowance provided by the company.

Reintegration

By implementing 250 short-term mobility internships with companies involved in transnational activities in the Mediterranean area, the project will boost employability prospects of young Mediterranean graduates in the job market. HOMERe’s added value lies with the commitment of partner companies to consider employment opportunities in a local branch of the candidate’s country of origin upon completion of the internship.

Strengthening the Network

Through awareness raising activities and the set-up of new network’s structures, the project aim to reinforce HOMERe’s institutional governance and increase the cooperation between academic institutions and transnational private companies operating in the Mediterranean region.
