Inclusive Growth Research Infrastructure Diffusion (InGRID)

Background

The general objectives of InGRID – Inclusive Growth Research Infrastructure Diffusion – are to integrate and to innovate existing, but distributed European social sciences research infrastructures On ‘Poverty and Living Conditions’, ‘Working Conditions and Vulnerability’ and ‘Policy Analysis’ by providing transnational data access, organising mutual knowledge exchange activities and improving methods and tools for comparative research.

This integration provides the European scientific community with new and better opportunities to fulfil its key role in the development of evidence-based European policies for inclusive growth.

InGRID is funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme under the ‘Capacities’ heading and involves 17 European partners.

Description

Three types of activities are organised:

  • joint research to improve quality, accessibility and comparability of the existing infrastructures
  • the organisation of expert workshops and summer schools in order to promote knowledge transfer
  • researchers from other institutes and countries are invited to visit the participating expert centres (‘transnational access’)

Training in the use of EUROMOD and transnational access to use it in a supported setting is being offered by three of the centres, including ISER.
