Project impact

A particularly valuable result of the PRORESS project will be a possibility of expanding knowledge and enriching it with scientific achievements and experiences presented by the experienced incoming researchers. Furthermore, the possibility of acquiring the ability of practical exploitation of knowledge will also be of high significance. Development of the researchers until now will be strengthened and directed into two tracks: 1) educational – imparting gained knowledge to students and secondary school youth and 2) practical – employing the knowledge for the development of the region, companies and market participants.

The project offers an unsurpassable opportunity to mutual learning the methods from the partners, by means of which knowledge can be transferred in the following aspects: in the educational aspect to the students, in the professional training aspect to the companies, employees, and in the aspect of national and regional administrative policy.
Transferred knowledge will concern such issues like: company restructuring, the ‘greening’ of companies, the social consequences that follow from company restructuring, research instrument and methods from sociology, ecology and economics, training in interview techniques/observation of the fellows who will be involved in the qualitative data collection, depth analysis of the survey data, comparisons between countries on the various aspects of the theoretical framework, understanding of the effect that sustainable restructuring has on creating jobs, and on the way in which macro, meso and micro factors influence this process. Transfer of knowledge will be not only scientific, but also civil society and policy oriented as well.

The aim is that all partners in the consortium will act together to bring about more alignment between demand and supply on the knowledge market. The consortium has three special qualities that will have an impact on the on-going and results of the project. Firstly, it is a wide spread experienced, international and interdisciplinary team; partners have, therefore, a proven track record in EU funded research. Secondly, by its composition consisting not just of EU research institutions, the consortium will guarantee a non-Eurocentric approach. Last but not least, the interdisciplinary composition of the consortium is a must in order to study the complex issue impact of sustainable restructuring on European and local economy conditions.
