In VISION Project we want to understand how people in Europe live together and cooperate on issues important to all. First, the researchers will focus on the living conditions in regions of Europe that face particular challenges related to ageing, outgoing migration or economic decline. We are interested in how local inhabitants meet these challenges in their everyday life. We want to address the situation of people who work across borders. Part of the research is trying to understand how men and women, young and old, experience these challenges differently. In the second step, by looking at the things mentioned above, the researchers want to think of what is needed for Europe to be a place where different people can live together and fulfil their dreams.
This joint research project is led by the German Centre for Integration and Migration Research (DeZIM), Paris Lodron University Salzburg, and the University of Amsterdam. It is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation as part of the „Challenges for Europe“ initiative. It started on 01.01.2022 and will last until 31.12.2025.
