About section


The Small-scale project M.A.R.I.O. aims to address outward migration in the IT-HR area, particularly concerning young educated individuals. By recognizing the societal challenges posed by outward migration, such as aging populations, inequality, climate change, and unemployment, M.A.R.I.O. takes an integrated territorial governance approach to tackle the problem comprehensively.

It emphasizes the importance of involving both public and private organizations and responding to the needs of the young people, leveraging their experiences to benefit their original communities. M.A.R.I.O. acknowledges the freedom of movement within the European Union and strives to create conditions that encourage young people to return to their communities.
