Transforming European Work and Social Protection

Global challenges such as digitalization, decarbonization, and international mobility of workers have substantial effects on the functioning of European labour markets. Some sectors grow as a consequence of these phenomena, while in others the demand for labour is decreasing. This has important implications for regulation and for welfare states in particular. Within this newly awarded Horizon Europe project, a team of researchers from Leiden University, together with an international consortium (including researchers from TU Delft, the University of Barcelona, the University of Geneva, the University of Kent, the University of Copenhagen, University College Dublin, the Centre for European Policy Studies, and the Central European Labour Studies Institute), will investigate how welfare states can help mitigate the potential negative effects of these large transformations for workers, families, and businesses.

The project is embedded in Leiden University’s research programme Social Citizenship & Migration and the Leiden – Delft – Erasmus Centre Governance of Migration and Diversity. The Principal Investigator of the project is prof. Olaf van Vliet.


At the kick-off conference all partners involved will present their research plans for the project.
