Information Guide focusing on Talent Partnerships, an initiative launched by the European Commission in 2021 aimed at enhancing legal migration pathways to the European Union (EU) in the framework of the Commission's New Pact on Migration and Asylum.

Further information:

The Talent Partnerships initiative was first unveiled as part of the Commission's strategy to address challenges relating to migration and asylum. It aims to address skills shortages in the EU and to strengthen mutually-beneficial partnerships on migration with third countries. It comprises a policy framework and funding support to establish international mobility by matching the skills of workers from countries outside the EU with the labour market needs inside the EU.

The partnerships are meant for students, graduates and skilled workers. They are also to provide opportunities for vocational educational and training, integration support for returning migrants, improving the EU's work with the diaspora, as well as expertise and analysis on employment needs.
