Written answers (Question to Education)

None of the Activities under the Human Capital Investment Operational Programme 2007-2013 (HCI OP) excludes youth, (i.e. persons aged below 25 years). All of the Activities are open to young persons. Community employment is not part of the HCI Operational Programme and is not co-financed by the ESF.
