The objective of PRORES project is transfer of knowledge in the field of restructuring from three perspectives: economic, ecological and social development. That is why four well prepared Universities from Ukraine, Lithuania and Poland were chosen to carried out the activity. Special attention in the project is given to early stage researchers. Due to project they will take an extensive training in hosting countries. Acquiring knowledge on these perspectives will allow gaining skills necessary to more efficient solving of restructuring problems in European and local markets.
Even if PRORES project concerns mobility as a primary objective, the interdisciplinary research is also an important part. The project makes environmental issues central to research on organisational restructuring, stressing the ecological and the social issues. Basic methodology that will be used in project will be a “case study” covering selected companies in project partner countries. The results of the research, as a form of new knowledge, will be disseminated amongst different stakeholders of pro-ecological restructuring.
Currently, the project’s topic is of importance for several reasons. Firstly, in the context of the current global financial crisis organisational restructuring processes are widespread across Europe and are especially painful for workers selected for redundancy and their communities. Secondly, the ecological perspective in research is absent. Thirdly, this issue is especially urgent because of the imperatives of climate change and the EU policies aimed at securing a transition to a low carbon economy in both the EU and wider Europe, as Europe 2020: A European strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Fourthly, project’s partners perfectly fit for implementing and strengthening European Neighbourhood Policy. Moreover, Ukraine is a very important EU neighbour from not only economic but also social and political perspective.
