Duration: June - November 2016
The aim of the project is the creation of a network of excellence and internationalisation in the field of labour market research. The project intends to consolidate recent advances in applied labour market research in the Western Balkans, including those made through the implementation of RRPP research grants, and to create a flexible, integrated platform for further labour market research in the region.
By bringing together institutions and individuals who have been involved in almost all labour-related RRPP projects, the proposed network intends to capitalise on this precious legacy of RRPP and to contribute to the sustainability and further expansion of labour market research in the region. The key purpose is to create a network of excellence and avoid fragmentation of labour market research in the region following the completion of RRPP.
