MobiliseSME is a European program that seeks to strengthen SMEs skills and capacities development by supporting short-term cross-border secondments for managers, owners, and staff of SMEs.

These secondments help the sending companies to develop the skills and capacities of their employees and managers, who will experience a cross border exchange in another company for a limited period while maintaining the contractual link with their employer.
On the other hand, the hosting company can enhance its business opportunities by establishing new contacts in other European markets and by strengthening the already existing partnerships.

The secondment is partially subsidised by the European Union. Whether you are a company interested in improving your staff skills or a company interested in hosting a potential partner from another EU country, the program can offer a great added value to your business, among other things, to enhance your competitiveness and to boost your internationalisation

Sending companies
Employers with more than three years of professional work experience and staff working at least for one year for the registered SMEs who wish to internationalise their operations, improve their knowledge in a particular market or get access to it by having short-term cross-border secondments in another EU country.

Hosting companies
Owners or co/owners with more than three years of professional activity, who are active and present in the company’s daily business activities, either in an executive or non-executive position, and who are seeking for the chance for an expansion/consolidation in another European market. 
The main task of the Partner Organisations of the consortium is to facilitate successful secondments between Host and Sending Companies and to offer matchmaking services.
