May 2017 - April 2021

The InGRID-2 project is the follow up of the FP7 infrastructure project Inclusive Growth Research Infrastructure Diffusion (InGRID). With largely the same consortium, the project aims at continuing the work developed in InGRID keeping the focus on methodologies and the sharing of research infrastructures with open calls to researchers being frequently launched throughout the project together with Summer schools and workshops. Thematically, the InGRID-2 project is divided in two research pillars: i) poverty and living conditions; and ii) working conditions and vulnerability. CEPS will have a large contribution to the dissemination activities and also to the research under the working conditions and vulnerability pillar. CEPS will tackle three different issues: employers hiring practices; occupations and new skills; and the sharing economy. The goal is to provide sound methodologies to analyse these topics and test them with specific case studies. In particular the use of web data and big data in labour economics research will be exploited by the CEPS team, and vulnerability questions concerning the four research topics will be investigated.
