Final Report - PROFIT (Policy responses overcoming factors in the intergenerational transmission of inequalities)

Project ID: 506245
Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS


This is the final report of the PROFIT project, which sought, primarily, to address the issues raised under the Research Area 2: Options and choices for the development of knowledge-based society and was particularly concerned with the topic of the intergenerational inheritance of inequalities (IIofI). Strategic goal of the project was to inform policy by developing an integrated understanding of how a knowledge-based society can promote the societal objectives of the European Union of sustainable development, social and territorial cohesion and an improved quality of life.

The report begins with some background on inequalities in the European Union and explains the project's objectives. It later describes the organisation and methodology of the research, it goes into detail about the findings and finally summarises the lessons learned.
