Country of implementation
General short description of the innovation
SROP (Social Renewal Operative Program) 1.1.2: Active programs available to the newly unemployed (T­MOP 1.1.2) were extended. A preplanned EU (ESF) co-funded measure was sped up because of the crisis. The policy objective was to promote job creation, thereby decreasing the chance of unemployment. The targeted services were: a) search-assistive services to unemployed, b) training + financial support, c) wage subsidy to gain new experience + commuting support. The National Development Agency was in charge of the implementation of the program (SROP Managing Authority).
