The project partners aim to cooperate in the evaluation of two different forms of employment initiatives targeting youth in Spain, Hungary, Italy and Poland, support other researchers in doing such evaluation studies, and promote the use of such studies to policy-makers. As a result, youth employment policies can become more effective.

Target groups:

  • Researchers evaluating public policy with administrative data
  • NGOs working with youth
  • Policy-makers implementing youth policies
  • Young people who would benefit from improved youth policies
