Families, Work and IST: A study of the interactions between family trends and new work methods in the Information Society

Objective

Families are central to the adoption of new ICT-based work methods and, conversely, the new work methods can impact on families for better or worse. The FAMILIES study will provide the first comprehensive and focused investigation of this area. It will analyse the key interactions between families and the new ICT-based work methods, empirically investigate these interactions as they arise for real families, define the policy and RTD implications, and disseminate the results inside and outside the programme. The results will help the RTD programme and projects to address the requirements for "family-friendly" systems and services, and contribute to the achievement of EC policy objectives in employment, equal opportunities, information society and other fields.
