Abstract: The paper reviews research on and examples of newly founded, youth-led social movementorganisations (SMOs) working to improve employment conditions for young people. The paper aims to provide a framework for studying the targeted SMOs across countries and against the backdrop of typologies of youth transition systems and industrial relations systems. Three subgroups of organisations are considered: a) youth organisations of or attached to trade unions, b) organisations campaigning against precarious employment and c) organisations aimed at improving working conditions during the early career years for people in (semi-)professional groups. Detailed discussions of SMOs include nine examples of SMOs from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia and the United Kingdom. The literature and examples revealed that recently founded, youth-led SMOs develop approaches to public issues, including their specific focus on areas of political contestation, that quickly diffuse across national borders; mobilisation in other locations inspired many local initiatives. Beyond individual learning by participation, recently founded youth-led SMOs should be regarded as laboratories producing qualitative knowledge and practical skills. By challenging established organisations, including trade unions, these organisations expand possibilities for renewing and enlivening structures of interest representation and strategy within industrial relations.

Abstract: Participation in lifelong learning is determined by the relationship between conditions and characteristics at three levels: the individual, learning providers and countries. This report, undertaken under the auspices of the ENLIVEN project, focuses on learning providers and the provision available for adult learners, in particular those who are disadvantaged, in ten countries/regions: Austria, Bulgaria, England, Estonia, Flanders, Italy, Scotland, Slovakia, Spain and Australia. In Part 1, theories, typologies and international measurement of lifelong learning participation are discussed. A typology of seven adult education types is described: basic skills and basic education; second chance education at upper secondary levels; post-secondary vocational education training (VET); apprenticeships; training as part of active labour market policies (ALMPs); workplace and job-related learning; personal and social learning.  In Part 2, descriptions and critical analysis of provision at country-level are provided for each adult education type. The main provider types are described, and are broadly defined in terms of being public sector providers (non-profit government-funded institutions), private sector providers (for-profit organisations), or third sector providers (non-profit voluntary, community or social organisations). Part 3 provides cross-country comparisons, in relation to employment and education indicators and by provision type. The country context is further considered in the context of market economy and welfare state typologies, in the form of analysis of each country’s adult education infrastructure in relation to a welfare state type. The report finally discusses what, as suggested by the findings, are the aspects of provision and provider types most relevant to disadvantaged adults.

Abstract: Data Management Plans (DMPs) are a key element of good data management. The DMP for ENLIVEN has been written with reference to the Guidelines on Data Management in Horizon 2020 which specifically ask for provisions to be made ‘FAIR’ – that is, findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable. The DMP covers three elements:
1/What data the project will produce;
2/ How the data will be used, managed and stored and
3/ How the data will be made accessible for future research.
It does this through detailed reference to the data collected in each of the project work packages.
