MOVE: Mapping mobility – pathways, institutions and structural effects of youth mobility in Europe
Start of new Horizon 2020 Social Science and Humanities (SSH) project
The newly launched Horizon 2020 project MOVE addresses the challenge of improving the conditions of the mobility of young people in Europe. The goal of the project is to understand the complexities of young people’s mobility patterns on an individual and socio-structural level by running an interdisciplinary and multilevel research approach on qualitative case studies and secondary data analysis. Moreover, a mobility survey will be conducted.
On July 6th and 7th, the coordinating institution, University of Luxembourg, will host the MOVE kick-off meeting on its premises. Beneficiaries from academia and youth institutions aim to discuss how these objectives can be achieved. Furthermore, it will be discussed how the expectations of the various stakeholders (i.e. policy makers, scientific community and the general public) can be met with respect to the intended project outcome. The consortium seeks to make MOVE an important reference on how mobility can be ‘beneficial’ both on the individual/family and the socio-economic level, and what are the factors that potentially hinder such a beneficial mobility.
MOVE is a 3-year EU funded project that was launched in May 2015 and is part of the Horizon 2020's Societal Challenge 6 "Europe in a changing world" scheme fostering good mobility and diminishing negative effects in consideration of the objective and subjective perceptions of young people. Relevant target groups are the international academic and scientific community, European and national policy makers, labour unions, employer associations, educational institutions and networks, chambers of industry and commerce as well as the general public.
MOVE consists of a well-balanced consortium of 9 institutions as well as an academic and policy advisory board with members from all across Europe.
Eurice is management partner of MOVE and thus contributes to the successful implementation of the goals of the project.
MOVE will organize further national workshops in each partner country, 3 target group oriented workshops as well as international conferences informing the European policy makers and stakeholders how they may benefit from MOVE.
