Who we are?
In 2013 NOTUS was created as a non-profit independent association by professionals.
Our starting point was the experience we developed in the CIREM Foundation until its closure, and the reaching of a strategic collaboration agreement with the Giacomo Brodolini Foundation based in Italy. Since then, NOTUS has attracted new professionals and is widening its activities.
Our work includes developing studies and reports, giving technical assistance to public and private entities to design, manage and evaluate policies and programmes, as well as organising seminars and workshops. We work with diverse institutional actors: public and administrative bodies, non-profit organisations, universities and research centres. We develop our activities at the local, regional, national, European and International levels. Our main thematic areas are employment, labour relations, qualifications and training, local development, poverty and social inclusion and gender.
