ABSTRACT
The aim of this paper is to present an assessment of the importance of transnational mobility for future human resources. Developing, adapting and broadening the range of skills of individuals to create and fill the jobs of the future are the most important contemporary target for Europe. Improving workforce skills has resulted in a process that the gain is mutual for both employers and economies company itself and of course for individuals. In every country of the European Union unemployment rate varies systematically with levels of skill. The employment rate of high skill level, in the European Union is 85%, 70% at medium and low-skilled staff is only 50%. From the need of EU member states of a highly qualified human resource we propose a critical analysis for students with placements mobility at the European level. The study was completed by analyzing and correlating data from surveys of higher education institutions in EU countries that participate in education and training programmes financed by the European Commission and other statistical data available at European level. At the final stage of analysis we identified several directions to develop in the relation between higher education institutions and business sector to ensure a wider access of the future workforce.
