Regio Lab for transnational mobility

The project „Regio Lab – für grenzüberschreitende Mobilität in der beruflichen (Aus-) Bildung und Berufsorientierung von jungen Menschen am Oberrhein“ (Regio Lab - for cross-border mobility in vocational education and training and career guidance for young people in the Upper Rhine), supported by the Franco-German Youth Office (DFJW), contributes to improving the situation of young people by offering financial, logistical and pedagogical solutions in the areas of awareness-raising, preparation, accompaniment and appreciation of cross-border mobility.

INTERREG - Regio Lab: For cross-border mobility in vocational (education) training and career guidance of young people in the Upper Rhine region.

After the long pandemic phase and in view of the current economic and social challenges, there is a need for new impetus for cross-border mobility of young people in vocational education and training in the Upper Rhine region.

The following offers will be developed within the framework of the project:

  • thematic Labs to bring together the actors concerned on concrete issues of cross-border mobility,
  • network of Regio Lab ambassadors who will hold awareness-raising workshops in schools,
  • a comprehensive offer for visiting job fairs to visit: Community stands about opportunities and possibilities to go to the neighbouring country,
  • intercultural rally as a mobile phone app, exchange forums for teachers and companies,
  • in-service training series for teachers including the preparation of a variety of working materials in different formats,
  • financial support for short-term group and individual trips to complement the existing offer,
  • pilot project / school trial of a multi-year cross-border vocational orientation programme at vocational schools,
  • events for the presentation, evaluation, adaptation and continuation of the Regio Lab's offers.

Finally, an evaluation of the different Regio Lab offers will be carried out, the results of which will be presented at an international conference at the end of the project period. In this way, partners, beneficiaries and experts (including from other border regions) can jointly formulate recommendations on the adaptation, continuation and transfer of the Regio Lab's offers. At the end of the project, about 40 ambassadors will have undergone the training and about 1600 pupils will have been sensitised through 64 workshops. 

The ASKO Europa Foundation is supporting the project with a grant of 40,000 euros.
