The Minister of Labor and Social Security, Pablo Mieres, accompanied this Wednesday 20 the general director of the National Institute of Employment and Vocational Training (Inefop), Pablo Darscht, at the launch of the Innovative Responses to Strategic Challenges (RIDE) program. The initiative will finance public and private organizations that carry out labor, training and advice proposals, with 120 million pesos.
The activity, carried out in the Mario Benedetti auditorium of the Telecommunications Tower, included the presentation of four proposals, of the 29 selected in the 2021 edition.
Mieres, in his oratory, highlighted that the call establishes as strategic challenges the ideas of training and employment linked to digital change, the search for new job profiles, the improvement of productivity and the management and promotion of the talent of workers.
Likewise, he stressed that within these areas, priority is given to preparing vulnerable populations. In reference to the evaluation of the proposals, he valued the participation of a committee external to the institute, since it will benefit transparency and objectivity when selecting the ideas that will be transformed into projects.
“It is a very important initiative that Inefop is carrying out, as part of its training and education efforts, calling for proposals that have to do with innovative initiatives that respond to strategic challenges,” he stressed.
Meanwhile, Darscht considered that these projects must be aligned with the agency’s plan. The hierarch also pointed out that this call is intended for public and private organizations, as in the cycle that took place in 2021, in which the support reached 90 million pesos.
Proposals may be submitted between July 21 and August 20 through the website of Inefop. Presidency
