“Boosting EU economy through training of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) advisors” is a project with the aim to increase foreign investments by developing a unique training programme which will equip FDI advisors with all the knowledge, skills and competences needed to provide all in one support for internationalization and relocation of foreign investors in one place.

Objectives of the project:

  • To improve quality and access to vocational education and training,
  • To improve knowledge and skills of employees in relevant consulting companies,
  • To improve employability of adult learners.

Based on the extensive international survey within the project, training programme with learning materials for mentors, training programme with learning materials for FDI advisors, and initiatives to include FDI advisors’ training programme into national educational schemes will be developed.

International dimension, ensured by consortium of partners and other relevant organizations from Croatia, Cyprus and Slovenia, enriches the project by broader overview, comparison and understanding of foreign investors' needs.

FDI advisors, included in the training programme, will be able to provide information and support in all relevant fields (from selection of the right type of investment opportunity, opening and running the business to real estate investment, reallocation, funds raising and after care services). They will have knowledge and skills to attract potential foreign investors and thus contribute to national GDP increase, creation of new jobs and other positive effects of FDI in country.
