The consortium of the TalentMagnet project (Interreg Danube) is delighted to invite you to the project conference: TalentMagnet in practice: Together for Talent-Friendly Cities on November 9th 2022.

Is your city experiencing brain drain? Do bright, talented people move to other cities?

Learn how to attract and retain young talents and become a TalentMagnet city. Or – if you are a young talent – enjoy being “magnetized” by talent-friendly cities!

We invite you to join the closing event, where the focus will be on the practical aspects of talent attraction and retention – international practitioners, prominent experts, and city representatives will share their knowledge and practical experience – tips and tricks that you can apply in your own city immediately after the conference!

Intervention logic, strategies, actions, tools, and a wide range of good practices from various cities will be presented in an easy-to-use format, with the aim of transferring knowledge and practices to other cities facing similar challenges.

Knowledge and practices reflecting the latest scientific results and the combined experience of the most prestigious experts and practitioners in the field – accumulated during the 3-year-long hard work of our international consortium with partners from 10 countries.

TalentMagnet project addresses major societal (demographic and labour market) challenges caused by the outmigration of highly-educated young people, primarily from small and medium-sized towns in the Danube Region (brain drain). 

The conference will be held in the scenic and historic town of Ptuj in Slovenia, hosted by the leading partner of the TalentMagnet project, Scientific Research Centre Bistra Ptuj and Municipality of Ptuj on 9th November 2022. Participating in the conference is free of charge.

REGISTER: Please sign up for the event by filling out the registration form until 5th November 2022.
