Project Partners

The first and most important requirement that the Project partneship satisfied was the complementarities between public and private partners, it means that the involved partners covered the overall value chain related to the database contents production and supply (Universities, Content Providers, Services Providers).

The direct involvement of the international universities in the project has laid essential basis for building the system. Thanks to the participation of the higher education institutions it was possible to find solutions for different needs and national contexts, to set up a functioning prototype of European Graduates Data Base, to merge graduates CVs from different sources (Project’s Partner Universities and Italian AlmaLaurea partners), to create effective multilanguages tools for the CVs publication and their search.

The participating private companies owned the infrastructures and the knowledge necessary for the management of the project and for the provision/marketing tests of the on-line services that are the “core” of this demonstration project.

AlmaLaurea eases access and improves the placement of young people into the job marked, supports companies in recruiting staff, reduces the lead time between the demand and the supply of qualified personnel, monitors the graduates' occupational status thus allowing the universities to verify their training and educational provisions.
