Changing Discourses, Changing Practices: The Roma as Human Resource
Changing Discourses, Changing Practices: The Roma as Human Resource
Project leader: Mgr. Kentoš Michal PhD.
Annotation:Roma people are the largest ethnic minority in the European Union (EU) and among the most deprived, facing social exclusion, discrimination and unequal access to employment, education, housing and health. Most of the estimated 5,2 M Roma people living in the Danube Region today still face intolerance, discrimination and exclusion from the labour market. Despite all efforts so far, policy makers and public entities are still lacking in-depth knowledge of the target group, proper institutional capacities and tools for integrating fragmented and inefficient services, an efficient institutional framework to interweave interventions and cooperate with key stakeholders, especially civil society and the private sector. The lack of, or inadequacy of evaluation & monitoring tools has also been a major obstacle in designing & implementing policies explicitly targeting the marginalised Roma. Therefore, RARE aims to enhance the capacities of and cooperation among actors having a stake in the labour market participation of the Roma in order to better exploit their economic potential. RARE will result in equipping partner institutions with new opportunities for synergies and innovation to effectively tackle labour market inclusion of the Roma in the Danube Region and monitor and assess efficiency of interventions. RARE Partners will define the prerequisites of effective institutional cooperation, elaborate and test innovative intervention models for labour market inclusion and will develop convincing economic argumentation for such interventions. The leveraging of know-how acquired in RARE will be facilitated by persuasive and easily digestible presentation of knowledge facilitated through sensitisation activities and transnational and national networks of stakeholders. RARE partnership involves 21 (13 financing and 8 ASP) partners from 8 DR countries. The partner (PP) organisations cover all DR countries where the exclusion of Roma population represents a key problem and high policy priority. RARE approaches Roma labour market integration with a multi-dimensional, multi-stakeholder, strategic partnership to achieve its objective and for greatest possible impact on the Danube Region. RARE partnership includes a mix of countries, competences, roles and types of stakeholders that are complementary at project level, and will allow to jointly develop institutional capacity and test cooperation tools/models in an effective and exemplary way.

ENLIVEN, Encouraging Lifelong Learning for an Inclusive and Vibrant Europe
Podpora celoživotného učenia sa pre inkluzívnu a pulzujúcu Európu
Program: Horizon 2020
Project leader: Ing. Studená Ivana PhD.
Annotation:The ENLIVEN project’s overarching objective is to provide an innovative model and mechanism to support policy debate, policy formation and policy evaluation in lifelong learning, focusing on the needs of today’s young adults, and integrating theoretical and empirical perspectives from social and computer sciences. The project will generate an evidence-based analysis of where, when and why policies have been effective, and develop a computer-based intelligent system to improve policy-making. Specific objectives: - Map and critically assess key elements of programmes implemented at EU, national and regional levels to support access to and participation in adult learning among excluded population groups and those at risk of social exclusion, assess how these have addressed disadvantage, inequality, and social exclusion, and helped overcome barriers to participation. - Assess the impact of “system characteristics” (of initial and adult education, the labour market, the economy, and social protection) on aggregate participation rates (overall, and in various segments of adult education markets), and on the distribution of participation (with special reference to disadvantaged young adults and using gender-sensitive approaches).
 - Assess the role of lifelong learning in developing a productive, efficient and competitive economy through investigating what learning potential and innovation ability exists within workplaces, what organisational models favour innovation ability and innovative oriented training, and how effective learning actions are. - Identify and map the nature and availability of data about adult and lifelong learning, and integrate these with new research findings from across the ENLIVEN project and, using data mining, establish a knowledge base for the development of an Intelligent Decision Support System to support policy making. - Design and implement an Intelligent Decision Support System, and test how this could adapt to new knowledge and learn from restoring users’ experience interactively. - Identify the learning potential and innovative capacity which exists within workplaces, what organisational models favour innovation ability and innovation-oriented training, and how effective learning actions are.

UrbanHist: History of European Urbanism in the 20th Century
Urbánna história: 20. storočie a európsky urbanizmus
Program: Horizon 2020
Project leader: Prof. PaedDr. Šutaj Štefan DrSc.
Annotation:Throughout the 20th century, urban planning constituted itself as an important tool to spatially direct social developments. This applies to Europe more so than to any other continent. Urban planning contributed significantly to the emergence of the welfare state, strong economies and a relatively balanced settlement structure. However, urban planning also caused the suppression and destruction of some population groups, alongside natural and cultural resources. Most studies on 20th century urban planning adopt a national perspective, while studies aiming to provide an overview focus on several core countries. Furthermore, methodological approaches are very heterogeneous. UrbanHist’s aim is to develop and sustainably promote a joint understanding of the history of urban planning in the 20th century from a European perspective. Complementing contributions of academic and non-academic partners will systematically increase the scientific level of the project. New knowledge, critical debates and dissemination will be strengthened. UrbanHist intends to facilitate the breakthrough of the European planning history debate, which is currently in its initial phase of development. The promotion of foreign doctoral students is part of daily university routine. In regard to the promotion and internationalisation of doctoral students, the four universities have already achieved a high standard.
