The generation between the age of 18 and 35 is among the most vulnerable positions in the European society. When it comes to the future, many questions are raised among the youth concerning education, its quality, and the ever decreasing professional and entrepreneurial opportunities which the former is the foundation of. Both the younger and the older generations, the later already being in the position of the decision-maker, agree that the education system should be goal-oriented and efficient joined by high standards to foster personal and professional competencies. Nonetheless, decision-makers often tend to have differing views on the nature of these essential competencies and also on the most pressing issues affecting the youth. Our goals to be realized upon the following three priorities: 1. Online survey and questionnaire conducted among Central European citizens between the age of 18 and 30 (target countries are the following: Hungary, Slovakia, Serbia, Romania, the Ukraine) focusing on the education and the issues regarding it, and moreover on those competencies which the interviewee/surveyee perceives as relevant.2. The evaluation of these surveys and questionnaires would enable the drafting of a specific policy solution.3. The proposed policy solution would be put into a professional dialogue between decision/makers and young researchers in the course of an international conference to promote mutual understanding and to trigger the implementation of a strategic policy aiming to solve the issues raised.The project would target young researchers, university and doctoral students between the age of 18 and 30. The research targets would be categorized into three subgroups in the following way:1. Students between the age of 18 and 20 who enrolled into higher education in the academic year 2015/2016.2. Students between the age of 19 and 25 who enrolled into higher education prior to the academic year 2015/2016.3. Doctoral students and young researchers between the age of 25 and 30.The proposed project would be realized in the following work phases:1. Composition of an online survey and a questionnaire to measure the target groups’ opinion on education, professional competencies, and the issues affecting their academic and professional advancement. The survey would sample a hundred students in each target country (Hungary, Slovakia, Serbia, Romania, the Ukraine).2. After the evaluation of the surveys and questionnaires, a group of young researchers would be invited to multiple workshops to develop a policy solution regarding the issues identified in the survey. Special emphasis would be put on personal, regional and global experience, while the workshops would provide an opportunity for the participants to improve their competencies.3. In the course of four international conferences (hosted respectively in Hungary, Romania and Slovakia) the proposed policy solution would put on a professional, high standard debate involving EU professionals responsible for education and youth policy, political decision-makers and the high representatives of the miscellaneous regional universities. These professional debates would promote mutual understanding between the younger and older generations, while also triggering international cooperation among the organizations and institutions involved. The discussion would also evaluate the role and the necessity of the Erasmus Plus program in the education of the European youth.The expected outcome and short-term goal of the project is to make the decision-makers and professionals aware that not only do young researchers and their organizations represent a reliable partner, but also they are potential and crucial resources in the aging European society. The long-term goal of the project is to start a professional dialogue between the young and older generations. We believe that if the decision-makers receive first-hand knowledge gathered through professional research concerning the issues students face in the education system, they would eventually realize that regular discussions and student involvement in decision-making is an imperative. Additionally, the project also offers the opportunity for the young researchers involved to improve their professional competencies (encompassing presentation and negotiation skills in foreign language, stress handling, problem solving, team work etc.), to broaden their knowledge and to acquire the some of the experience required by the labor market.
