    Background information

    The mismatch on the labor market, due to a qualitative and quantitative shortage of the right talents, is a growing problem in our region. Tomas provides a structural solution with a platform for talent development. Supply and demand are brought together in a clear and transparent way, with all the possibilities for retraining and refresher courses in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. This ensures that the right people with the right skills are in the right place.

    Tomas is created through a collaboration between the Municipality of Amsterdam, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (MRA Bureau), StartupAmsterdam and Amsterdam Economic Board.
