H2020-YOUNG-4-2015 - Emigración de jóvenes desde zonas rurales


Búsqueda de socios
Un instituto de investigación independiente húngaro está interesado en estudiar la actitud de los jóvenes hacia los cambios causados por el envejecimiento de la sociedad y sus expectativas en la formulación de políticas. La investigación se centra en la emigración de los jóvenes desde zonas rurales, y más específicamente en el análisis de los factores que influyen en este proceso. El instituto busca socios con experiencia en gestión de proyectos internacionales y desempleo y emigración juvenil en zonas rurales con el fin de presentar una propuesta a la convocatoria H2020-YOUNG-4.


H2020-YOUNG-4-2015 - Youth out-migration from rural areas
The project is proposed by a Hungarian independent research institute aiming at exploring the attitude of young people toward the changes caused by the phenomena of ageing society, and also their expectations toward policy making. The institute is looking for partners with experience in international project management and in the issue of youth unemployment and out-migration in and from rural areas for H2020-YOUNG-4 call for proposals.
The Hungarian Institute is looking for partners for H2020 call for proposals in the topic of The young as a driver of social change (H2020-YOUNG-4-2015 call).

As the Call states, aging is contemporary problem of the European Union, and younger generations have to face and deal with the challenges deriving from this fact. The Call has a wide scope: it aims at exploring the attitude of young people toward these changes, and also their expectations toward policy making. The proposed research aims at focusing on the out-migration of the younger generations from rural areas, more specifically to analyse the factors influence this process.

The lack of proper jobs at rural places, and rural youth unemployment is a complex problem. Researches into youth unemployment analyse the effect of educational level, the employment status of the parents or the effects of regional disparities. Despite it, there is less systematic information about the effect of settlement type, about the characteristics of rural youth unemployment (one of these: SERA Report).
Proposed methods: the status quo analysis could be based on secondary analysis of available data sources, on document analysis to describe rural youth unemployment, then using existing documents and semi-structured interviews to map the initiatives dealing with the problem of rural youth. Finally case-studies could be conducted to analyse the limiting and enabling factors of such initiatives.

Previous experiences
There are some local initiatives to help younger generations to return or move to rural areas. One of these initiatives is the Case of the Homecoming Association at Zalaszentgrót, an interesting local initiative. Another initiative is the Virtual Village Program, a country level initiative of the AGRYA (Hungarian Association of Young Farmers).

The first initiative is located in a small Western-Hungarian micro-region which has agricultural traditions. During the last two decades both former socialist-types cooperatives and the system of household-farming collapsed. The industry of the area used to be weak always; tourism seems to grow in the last decade. The outmigration from the area to Western-Europe and to other regions of Hungary is high. The main aim of the initiative is to retain local youth in the region after graduating. The initiative is actively seeking the opportunities to create home, job and community for the young intellectuals ready to return or move to the micro-region.

The Virtual Village Program aims at creating and strengthening local communities in rural areas. It offers financial and professional support to civic organizations of young people around rural areas of Hungary. Only already existing NGOs are eligible for their support. The program offers training, a small research and a discussion forum to the participants.

The Hungarian Institute is looking for institutions with experience in international research projects in the field of youth policy and regional development, and those who have already managed such projects. One partner is sought to be the project coordinator.
With the interested partners, the institute would prepare the project application together, led by the coordinator according to the relevant Work Packages. Tasks of other partners: analyse the reasons for European youth unemployment, overview of the youth policy and their impact in regional and local level, selecting and analysing case-studies are foreseen to be separated WPs.

The submission deadline date is 28/05/2015 17:00 (Brussels local time), and the length of the project will be agreed jointly.
The interested organizations should send their response by March 31, 2015.
Advantages and Innovations:
There are several researches about the reasons of youth out-migration from rural areas. According to the recent literature on the topic the main influencing factors are the following: lack of proper jobs (rural youth unemployment), scarcity of educational possibilities, housing problems and changing life-style patterns. According to previous researches there is a scarcity of free positions and parallel to it the lack of skilled workers and educated professionals in rural areas, thus the problem of rural youth unemployment can be a key-element to better understand the problem. In the proposed research the aim is to analyse initiatives which help young people with university degree to move to and work in rural areas.

This research will contribute to public policies designed to meet the challenge of transition into a more sustainable economic, political and social model that would at the same time respond to the needs and expectations of young people. It will also identify the areas and good practices from local initiatives to help younger generations to return or move to rural areas to foster a more equal development.

Such a research, based on case studies from several European countries, collecting the best practices of how to reverse youth out-migration from rural areas would give a unique incentive and tools to the decision-makers in local councils. These practices represent an important 'social product' that can start a reform in the revitalization of the remote areas with stimulating local entrepreneurship and the exploitation of the potential of these areas. The benefit of this 'product' will be reinvested into the development of the local community and economy.
