Rural NEET Youth Network: Modellierung der Risiken, die der sozialen Ausgrenzung ländlicher NEETs zugrunde liegen

Research domain:
Livelihoods in rural areas

Project duration:
14.10.2019 - 13.10.2023

The Rural NEET Youth Network (RNYN) encompasses the creation of a European-led multidisciplinary network from countries showing higher NEET (not in employment, education or training) youth rates in rural areas. The RNYN aims at developing a model of comprehension for rural NEETs’ social exclusion risk and protective factors based on the bioecological model. It focuses on three specific goals: (1) upholding future research capability, with an emphasis on Early Career Investigators (ECI) and Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITC); (2) creating a rural NEETs’ online observatory; and (3) fostering knowledge use by policy makers and practitioners. There are 26 partners from EU and non-EU countries.
