The Young Generation in Europe

Call for Proposals H2020

The Young Generation in Europe

The Call for Proposals “The Young Generation in an Innovative, Inclusive and Sustainable Europe” has been published by the European Commission, Directorate Research and Innovation in the framework of the Horizon 2020-YOUNG-SOCIETY-2014 European Programme.

The purpose of the current European call for proposal entitled “The Young Generation in an Innovative, Inclusive and Sustainable Europe” is to analyze the long-term consequences of these developments for successful economic, social and labour market policies that could address in a comprehensive way this problem now and in the future.

 

The European call for proposal “The Young Generation in an Innovative, Inclusive and Sustainable Europe” aims to investigate the important differences in the performance of the labour markets, anticipatory social work and youth services measures that exist across Member States and their underlying factors, especially from the young people point of view, in order to identify the most effective ways of labour market organisation and improving the education systems and social policy. Taking specifically into account the gender perspective and most vulnerable groups of young people, research will also investigate the economic, social, personal and psychological consequences of early job insecurity, labour market and social exclusion in the short, medium and long term.

 

The analysis to be carried out in the framework of the European call for proposal  “The Young Generation in an Innovative, Inclusive and Sustainable Europe” could include for example such issues as income situation throughout the life course, establishing an independent household, family formation, physical and mental health and wellbeing as well as the effects of preventive social work with the youth, focused on the most disadvantaged groups. In this context, research could take into account the experiences of past generations which were exposed to high unemployment and job insecurity in their youth.

 

Under the current European call for proposal  “The Young Generation in an Innovative, Inclusive and Sustainable Europe”, the eligible proposals are research and Innovation Action, primarily consisting of activities aiming to establish new knowledge and/or to explore the feasibility of a new or improved technology, product, process, service or solution. For this purpose they may include basic and applied research, technology development and integration, testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment. Projects may contain closely connected but limited demonstration or pilot activities aiming to show technical feasibility in a near to operational environment.

 

The expected impact of action under the European call for proposal “The Young Generation in an Innovative, Inclusive and Sustainable Europe” is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the short- and long-term consequences of job insecurity and unemployment of young people and to identify their impact on the economy, society and politics. These activities will contribute to an effective anticipation of the potential challenges facing the EU in the future allowing for an early policy response. Through a better understanding of the mechanisms driving the labour market, this research should lead to a more robust and inclusive labour market policy in the EU as well as to a better evidence-based economic, social and education policies.

 

The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of the action is estimated at EUR 19 000 000 maximum, for the period 2014-2015. The Commission considers that proposals under the current European call for proposal entitled “The Young Generation in an Innovative, Inclusive and Sustainable Europe” requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 1.5 million and 2.5 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current “The Young Generation in an Innovative, Inclusive and Sustainable Europe” call for proposals is 3 June 2014.
