On December 19, in hall 401 of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, a meeting of the working group under COST Action 17114 (Transdisciplinary solutions to cross sectoral disadvantage in youth – YOUNG-IN) was held. The meeting was attended by the scientists responsible for preparing the recommendations to politicians and political groups issued after 4 years of transdisciplinary comparative studies carried out in the period from 2018 to 2022.


The project aims to understand the interconnectedness of the disadvantages faced by young people across Europe in the process of entering adulthood and how policies can mitigate this negative effect, and specifically:

  • obstacles in finding decent work;
  • creating a family;
  • the voice of young people to be heard in political processes.

More than 50 scientists from more than 30 countries, representatives of various fields, including sociology, pedagogy, management, etc., are participating in the project.

During the meeting of the working group, the adoption of the so-called recommendations to political leaders for modeling, changing public policies regarding youth inclusion, access to education, family formation and finding decent work, were discussed.


More information on the topics will be presented on 21 February 2023 at a European Forum in Brussels, Belgium. The Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Atanas Georgiev, congratulated the participants in the working group and shared that he looks forward to their joint work on the project in the future.
