The three key mega-trends (digitalization, globalization, migration) posing socio-economic challenges and opportunities for the EU.
LISER as main partner of the European H2020 project "UNTANGLED"

The project “Untangling the impacts of technological transformations, globalization and demographic change to foster shared prosperity in Europe (UNTANGLED)” granted by the European Commission though its H2020 programme and coordinated by the Katolieke Universitéit Leuven, of which LISER is the main partner, has just been launched and will run until the end of January 2024.

Technological transformations, globalisation and demographic changes are the three key mega-trends posing socio-economic challenges and opportunities for the EU.

UNTANGLED aims to fill knowledge gaps about these trends by pursuing three main goals: (1) to provide detailed analyses at the macro-, regional-, sectoral-, and micro-level concerning the effects of these trends on labour market outcomes and inequality, and their winners and losers; (2) to develop comprehensive, model-based scenarios of the impacts of these trends in the next decades, overall and for various subpopulations, sectors and regions; (3) to develop policy recommendations fostering shared prosperity. UNTANGLED contributes to the work programme’s goal of promoting inclusive and evidence-based policy and informed public debates.
