The objective of NEUJOBS is to assess the implications of socio-ecological key transitions (such as developments in climate change, energy, and culture) on the labour market in 2025. The output will be a mix of quantitative and qualitative analyses, scenarios and policy analysis. NEUJOBS is carried out by a consortium of 32 research institutes led by the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels. The project includes 24 work packages. NIDI is involved in 5 work packages.
In the work package Work life balance and welfare transformation NIDI examines the strategies individuals and couples across Europe adopt to handle the challenges concerning the work-life balance. NIDI analyses whether these strategies differ between social strata and between welfare states. Data from the Generations and Gender Surveys (GGS) are used. In the work package Regional disparities NIDI examines regional differences (at NUTS 2 level) in the growth of the working age population and to what extent these can be explained by differences in cohort turnover, the direction of migration flows and mortality. The focus is on differences between urban, rural and intermediate regions. In the work package Modelling the evolution of labour supply and labour demand NIDI develops scenarios of the working age population at NUTS 2 level for urban, rural and intermediate regions. The scenarios will distinguish the population by household position. In the work package Employment of the elderly NIDI analyses to what extent employers stimulate and facilitate the extension of the working life. In the work package Immigration NIDI studies the key drivers of employability of second-generation migrants and European labour migration policies.
