Future of work

For years, U.S.E. has conducted research on the developments of the labour market, often in cooperation with Law and Sociology. For instance, the project School2work focuses on the transition of intermediate vocational students from school to work.

Another example is the project Activating senior potential in an ageing Europe. This European funded project showed which measures regarding raising the pensionable age were successful in several European countries.
