europatriates are a private non-profit initiative organizing the congress and the pilot programme through member donations, sponsoring and participation fees.
Public opinion holds that unemployment is an inevitable result of the market economy while others see it as an unbearable imposition on people in our modern societies that must be resolved. The initiators of europatriates belong to the latter group.
In recent years, a group of experts and scientists, commissioned by the SHS Foundation, created concepts and new instruments to combat youth unemployment in Europe that are applicable to the requirements of these European states.
The europatriates are supported by non-profit establishments. They organise the congress and pilot programme with partners and build up a social franchising network.
