WorkSpace Europe, Slovak Republic
Karol Ovesný

I am Karol Ovesny, a founder and CEO of WorkSpace Europe, a Slovakian non-profit training organisation that specialises in the preparation of higher education students for the European labour market. We focus on university–business cooperation and coordinate the Slovak consortium of universities for Erasmus+ traineeships, representing 12 universities in Slovakia and three in the Czech Republic.

I have set up several projects in student mobility and employability, as well as student internships. I cooperate closely with both employers and universities to help connect these two worlds, reflecting current trends in Slovakia and the EU. I am also a board member of the LEO-NET international association of universities, focused on international student internships and student employability.

For two years, I have been proud to be an associate in the steering group of the EAIE Expert Community Employability. I would like to continue offering my expertise to this great team and contribute to the activities of the EAIE as a steering group member.
