Inclusive Growth Research Infraestructure Diffusion
Funding: European Union's Seventh Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration under Grant Agreement No 312691.
The InGRID project is funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration under Grant Agreement No 312691 and involves 17 European partners. Referring to the EU2020-ambition of Inclusive Growth, the general objectives of InGRID – Inclusive Growth Research Infrastructure Diffusion – are to integrate and to innovate existing, but distributed European social sciences research infrastructures on ‘Poverty and Living Conditions’ and ‘Working Conditions and Vulnerability’ by providing transnational data access, organizing mutual knowledge exchange activities and improving methods and tools for comparative research. This integration will provide the related European scientific community with new and better opportunities to fulfil its key role in the development of evidence-based European policies for Inclusive Growth.
In this regard specific attention is paid to a better measurement of
related state policies, to high-performance statistical quality
management, and to dissemination/outreach activities with the broader
stakeholder community-of-interest, including European politics, civil
society and statistical system. A better measurement and understanding
of vulnerable groups is the common and shared expected impact of this
integrated research infrastructure.
