Website launched and first peer review workshop in Graz

Guided by the project’s paradigmatic subtitle: Balanced approaches for an ageing workforce in metropolitan areas, the project aims to investigate what constitutes an innovative practice in order to integrate older long-term unemployed people over 50 in metropolitan areas into sustainable employment. Age-Work-Balance is implementing a social experiment and analyses of already existing innovative practices in the cities of Graz, Berlin, Hamburg, Santander and Dublin.

The website has been launched and keeps you updated about the project’s ongoing activities and their results.

The first peer review workshop has been successfully realised on 15th – 16th March 2012, in Graz. The consortium was hosted by move-ment Personal- und Unternehmensberatung GmbH. Workshop reports and videos can be found on the project website.
