MOVE YOUR MIND
Coopération Bancaire pour l’Europe (CBE-GEIE) and Piacenza’s Bank, Italy
Young people from 18 to 28 years living in Emilia Romagna region
National Bank Loan
To help students going abroad and facing the economic difficulties linked to the low amount of funds available for mobility activities
The Project “MOVE YOUR MIND” is promoted by Coopération Bancaire pour l’Europe (CBE-GEIE) and Piacenza’s Bank, with the aim to address a significant lack of private financial products to sustain mobility. The out-put of a deep research is a special loan for mobility that has been re-adapted in Italian with the name of “CULTURA TRASFRONTALIERA”. Piacenza’s Bank has given rise to a best practice, as the financial product offered to the clients is the first financial loan totally dedicated to mobility, with no collateral required and, above all, with no interest rate. Move your mind is addressed to different kinds of mobility giving young people the chance of studying or travelling abroad. In addition, this new private loan invented by Piacenza’s Bank and CBE will not substituted the European national or regional grants, but it will integrated the grants with a maximum amount for the loan of 3.000 euros. The direct beneficiaries are young people from 18 to 28 years living in Emilia Romagna region (Italy) and willing to study or to have a job experience abroad. The main objective of the project is to help students going abroad and facing the economic difficulties linked to the low amount of funds available for mobility activities. More specifically, it is addressed to undergraduate/graduate students starting an ERASMUS, a LEONARDO DA VINCI project and all kinds of TRAINEESHIP (integration to an aid grant). The related aim is to transfer the outcome of Piacenza’s Bank to other banks in Europe, convincing them to adopt the same loan to sustain mobility.
