Global Entrepreneurial Talent Management 3 (GETM3)


Eu _logoThis project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 734824


In the future, said Charles Handy in 1989, organisations would not be able to:

“…use people as human resources, as if they were forklift trucks with brains, to move around at our disposal. These new workers have minds of their own and have to be persuaded rather than told what to do. They have to be led rather than managed, and that's very difficult and very different.”

The future is here…..

Global Entrepreneurial Talent Management 3 (GETM3) is an international, interdisciplinary research and innovation project funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 stream to the tune of 950k euros over four years. The overarching aim of the research project is to improve employability and future global talent management to support economic development. 

“Why is it everytime I ask for a pair of hands, they come with a brain attached?”

- Henry Ford

Northumbria University is leading an international consortium to investigate current issues in the employability and management of graduates at a regional, national and global level with a view to enhancing business performance and economic development in transitional regions/countries. The 13 partners in Europe and Korea include high-ranking and accredited universities, external employers and industry bodies, providing excellent access to organisations and international collaboration.

The research project will identify and address the talent management issues of the future by working with, and in, three stakeholder groups: students and graduates (the future generations), employers (wealth-creators of the future), and higher education institutions (educators of the future).
