Ln today’s modern and rapidly evolving society of the XXI. century, we are confronted by a situation in which Europe has to face demographic changes.

The innovative 4E project comes up with a possible solution to the major issue of today – the increasing percentage of unemployed workers over the age of 50, for whom it is very difficult to orientate and find employment in the current European labor market. This issue is accompanied by many stereotypical prejudices regarding declining productivity, inability to adapt to the latest technology which in many cases leads to forced abandonment and exclusion from the working environment.
The main objective of the project is to increase job opportunities and strengthen the position of older workers in the labor market. The whole concept is based on the exchange of experience and long-term practice between private and non-profit organizations, which through the development of a new methodology and the entire training module, prepare and provide the key requirements or demands required by the current European labor market. The methodology will be freely available in its online version and translated into eight European languages. The new training module establishes a stable platform for other organizations or training centers that would continue this project, increase the skills of workers over the age of 50, change their perception in the labor market, and provide inspiration for a broad social stratification.
