The overall goal of the project was increased harmonization between supply and demand in the labour market in Prnjavor, and the specific goal was established functional employment partnership of the Prnjavor Municipality as the capacity for continuous implementation of active employment measures. Thanks to great commitment of all partners and participants in the project implementation, results have been achieved that exceed the defined project indicators and provide a good starting point for continuing work on improving conditions in the labor market of Prnjavor.
