 International and national projects beyond EU Framework Programme
These project examples mentioned above are carried out within the unit Technology and Knowledge. However, within the unit Work and equal opportunites projects focus on
  • the configuration of labour markets, local governance implemented by partnerships, innovative employment policies and new forms of work; and
  • the consequences and results of international migration, ethnic economies, gender equality, an ageing society and other issues of social integration versus exclusion.
    Many of the 10 to 15 A&C projects created and implemented each year are based on international co-operation and networks with partners from the EU and abroad.
