EIPA Seminar on Migration and Skills – Berlin, 02-03/03/2016

Migration and Skills: Successful Labour Market Integration through Recognition of Professional Qualifications – Berlin, 2-3 March 2016

The seminar is developed in cooperation with the winning project of the European Public Sector Award – EPSA 2015 (National level category), BQ-Portal (Berufsqualifikationen) – The Information Portal for Foreign Professional Qualifications, managed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. EPSA is support by the European Commission, DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.

The BQ-Portal is entirely unique as it is the first online work and knowledge-sharing platform in Europe to pool all of the relevant information on foreign professional qualifications and vocational training systems in one platform. It provides employers and Chambers of Commerce with comprehensive information and practical guidelines that help them assess foreign professional qualifications.

The two-day seminar will take place in Berlin at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and provides an excellent opportunity to learn in detail about the BQ-Portal. The seminar is designed to give participants insights in how the BQ-Portal has been designed, how it is managed, how different stakeholders use and benefit from the portal.
