Bridging the Gaps Together: Incentives to establish cross-sectoral cooperation between actors of the youth sector

This research project is an empirical action-based research started in 2014. The study investigates the perspectives of youth workers on being young today and collaborating with youth researchers. The study also involves youth researchers. Workshops were conducted with youth workers and youth researchers.

The project aims at encouraging more collaboration between youth workers and youth researchers in a first time, and later with other youth actors, in order to find more effective solutions, concrete tools and services to ease young people’s transition to adulthood and integration into society.
