Key action - improving the socio-economic knowledge base: Synopses of key action projects funded as a result of the 1st call for proposals (1999) and the 2nd call for proposals (2000)

Funded under: FP5-HUMAN POTENTIAL

Abstract

The scope of earlier socio-economic research is both deepened and widened through the implementation of the Key Action ¿Improving the Socio-economic Knowledge base¿ in the 5th RTD Framework Programme (1998-2002). The objective of this key action is to improve our understanding of the structural changes taking place in European society in order to identify ways of managing change and to involve European citizens more actively in shaping their own futures. This involves the analysis of the main trends giving rise to these changes, the analysis of the relationships between technology, employment and society, the reappraisal of participation mechanisms for collective action at all levels of governance and the elaboration of new development strategies fostering growth employment and economic and social cohesion.

The first call for proposals was open from March until June 1999 and addressed twelve research tasks. 195 proposals were received in response to the first call and 43 were selected for EU funding. The second call for proposals was open from January till June 2000 and addressed seven research tasks. 378 proposals were received in response to the second call and 71 were selected for EU funding. The present publication presents the synopses of the selected projects within the different research tasks or groups of tasks.
