Supporting Denmark to integrate and attract global talent 

The project supports Copenhagen Capacity and other EU stakeholders to develop intra-EU collaboration on talent with a view to strengthen retention of skilled migrants in Denmark and the EU, and enhance intra-EU talent mobility

Context

The Talent Hub supports Copenhagen Capacity and other EU stakeholders to develop intra-EU collaboration on talent with a view to strengthen retention of skilled migrants in Denmark and the EU, and enhance intra-EU talent mobility. Talent is defined here as mid to highly skilled Third Country National (TCN) workers.

EU Member States need to expand on existing EU initiatives for attracting foreign talent and to replicate best practices on social inclusion and retention in the context of global competition for talent. Enhancing the integration and social inclusion of migrants meets key European objectives of equality and social cohesion, essential for a dynamic economy that benefits all.

Support delivered

The Talent Hub project will develop various materials, including a modular guidebook showcasing practical experiences and best practices with talent retention in selected EU Member States. This guidebook can be applied to different EU stakeholders seeking varied input on their challenges on talent retention, attraction and circulation in their national contexts.

The project concludes with the formulation of a concept note on a Talent Hub EU coordination mechanism (collaboration & knowledge sharing mechanism of best practices) and a final workshop in February 2024.

Expected results

The technical support will strengthen the capacity of Danish and selected European stakeholders to develop, adapt and implement strategies related primarily to talent retention, nurturing and attraction. Talent is here defined as mid to highly skilled Third Country National (TCN) workers in Denmark and the EU.
