By the end of the project we may confirm that the H-CARE also contributes to the Europe 2020 growth strategy in particular to the EU’s employment rate target of 75% by 2020, by helping people learn new skills and adapt to changes in the labour market.

By development of a new occupational job profile in Health Care Sales the project will encourage the employment in this sector.

The H-CARE innovation can make the Health Care Sales sector more sustainable and find new cures for health conditions since the HC sector has an important role to play in improving skills and creating jobs as it employs 1 in 10 of the most qualified workers in the EU.
