The partners associated with this initiative are Liguria, Sardinia and Tuscany, for Italy; for France, the partner is Pôle emploi Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur, and more particularly the Var and Alpes Maritimes departments. The managing authority is the Tuscany region.

The objective is to experiment with new services in order to strengthen the match between labor supply and demand. The project consists of building a network of all those involved in employment services and a forum of operators of cross-border employment services in order to develop activities for exchanging knowledge and experiences.

In addition, MA.R.E. aims to define a common model for the identification, validation and certification (IVC) of skills in order to facilitate the identification of formal and informal skills, and to experiment specific training activities for the benefit of common professional profiles in priority cross-border sectors (blue and green) in the various interested regions.

The results of the project will lead to the definition of a strategic document for the development and optimization of the governance of the labor market of employment services in the program area, which will constitute a proposal to be shared with the project management authority and brought to the attention of the national authorities of the partners.
