"The changing nature of employment in Europe in the context of challenges, threats and opportunities for employees and employers" is an exciting new international comparative European FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and Experienced Researchers (ERs) preparing for doctoral and post-doctoral research. It is amongst a small number of multi-disciplinary social science programmes to be awarded funding in the current Marie Curie awards under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development (FP7). The ITN, co-ordinated by the University of Strathclyde-Glasgow, has successfully obtained 4,060,000 Euros to support the network bringing together new and recent post graduate researchers working on an international post graduate research programme supervised by internationally renowned senior academics.

The work of the programme will be explored under three key themes:

  1. Management and Employees
  2. Inclusion and Exclusion
  3. Employee Wellbeing and Work Life Quality

The programme features attendance at twice yearly seminars at participating European partner universities and institutions, participation at regular theme seminars, and an annual network colloquium. The ESRs and ERs are articipating in one of the three above-referenced themes, working with other Fellows across the 48 months of the programme. This is a distinctive opportunity to participate in, and mature within, a highly imaginative international social science training network, developing research practice and state of the art engagement with global practitioners in private and public sector institutions and trade unions.

Duration: December 2012 - November 2016
