“Sackgassen – Umleitungen – Überholspuren?” – Risks of exclusion and new perspectives in transitions to work
Transnational Knowledge Transfer Project
This project aimed at improving the situation of young people in their transitions to work by furthering the dialogue between research, practice and policy-making. For this aim, regional conferences were held in four European partner regions to discuss the outcomes of the TSER-funded research network “Misleading Trajectories”).
In Baden-Württemberg there were the following events held:
- a regional symposium on 20.10.99 in Hohenwart/Pforzheim
- a further training seminar for pratitioners in the field of transitions to work
The parters within the four regions were:
- LIBRA, Cooperativa Sociale di Intervento e Ricerca, Ravenna, Italy
- Hope Street, International Arts, Training and Development, Liverpool, UK
- AREA (Asociación Regional y Europea de Análisis), Valencia, Spain
- IRIS (Institut für regionale Innovation und Sozialforschung) e.V., Tübingen, Germany

“Advising local networks of 3rd sector initiatives – job creation for (disadvantaged) young people in the area of social and youth services”
An international project
Duration: 1998 – 2000
The Project „Advising local networks of 3rd sector initiatives: job creation for (disadvantaged) young people in the area of social and youth services”, funded under the EU „Third System & Employment Pilot Action” identified – by transnational comparison between the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, and Germany – potentials for employing young people within third sector institutions. In a second step, these institutions have been supported to set their potential role as job provider into practice – by applying tools for self-evaluation, and by creating local networks.
