LOLAMAR – Final conference

The final conference of the Hungarian-Serbian IPA project LOLAMAR – Toward a Local Based Labour Market Policy Approach in Cross-border Rural Regions was organized in Baja on 20th February, 2014. This scientific conference had two goals: to provide an overview about the labour market processes of Serbia and Hungary, and to present the results of the research programme to the local decision makers, practitioners, representatives of the civil sector and to the local community.

At the start of the conference, the attendants were welcomed by Éva Perger, director of the Institute for Regional Studies CERS HAS and head of the lead partner’s research group. After that, Svetlana Milovančev, the Serbian partner’s representative introduced the project and the Agency for Regional Development of AP Vojvodina, followed by the presentations listed in the invite letter. The first half of the presentations gave an overview of the economic development and prospects of Serbia and Hungary, and the current state and problems of the labour market of the two countries. The latter half of the presentations displayed the main results of the research program.

The conference was held in a good atmosphere and provided great opportunity for the Serbian and Hungarian researchers to exchange their knowledge and form new relationships.

The scientific conference was followed by a press conference.
