IREAS will start a two-year international evaluation project funded by Norway Grants on the topic of Lost Millennials
IREAS, in collaboration with 13 other partners from EEA countries, has succeeded in a call for Norway Grants with a new project on "Lost Millennials", which will focus analysis and research on the regularly neglected group of millennials. In the literature and in strategic documents at national level, they are referred to by the acronym NEET ("Not in Education, Employment or Training"). These are young people aged 25-29 who are not in education, employment or training and are mainly supported by their parents. IREAS will guarantee analysis and evaluation activities in this project.
The main objective of the project will be to contribute to the successful integration of 25+ NEETs into the labour market by increasing knowledge on the effects of employment initiatives on 25+ NEETs, building the capacity of stakeholders to carry out impact studies and thus improving the quality of labour market interventions. This will be achieved through the creation of a transnational research network to share know-how and best practices, the evaluation of government and community initiatives targeting 25+ NEETs, and the involvement of stakeholders to increase the policy relevance of the project results. The primary target group is researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders, while the target beneficiaries are 25+ NEETs with a focus on disadvantaged groups.
