Project Description

Get together without barriers? - conceptualizing a platform solution for fostering inclusion on urban labour markets

In European cities there are large numbers of highly qualified but disadvantaged groups not being used in the labour market. If only these highly talented groups could be harnessed, many cities would become much more competitive and innovative, thus making them attractive business locations. G@together seeks to achieve this goal by focusing research on two key areas. Firstly, it will analyse the needs of these highly qualified jobseekers whilst looking at ways in which they are excluded from the labour market. Secondly, the project will research the needs of employers who are searching for those with specialised knowledge. Specifically, the research will take place in Vienna and Istanbul. In Vienna research will be focused on the needs of job seekers with migrant backgrounds who face barriers from fully utilizing their specialist knowledge. In Istanbul the project investigates the issue of gender equality and barriers facing highly qualified women which prevent them from fulfilling their potential. This research will form the basis for creating an innovative online platform which will be highly useable and accurate for both job seekers and employers.
