Welcome to WorkAble
Collaborative Research Project
WorkAble's RESEARCH TOPICS
- the difficulties young people are faced with on their way from education to work or to apprenticeship,
- the problem of youth unemployment,
- the way how institutions of the educational and vocational training systems in Europe tackle these problems
- and the underlying political strategies.
These topics and their interrelations are of high explosiveness and significance for the upcoming generations, for educational providers, for social, educational and labour market policies and last but not least for the future of Europe as a whole.
