The CUPESSE consortium at its 7th Progress Meeting in Granada

As the project nears its end in January 2018, the CUPESSE consortium came together for its 7th Progress Meeting in Granada, Spain, on 22-23 June 2017.

The meeting focussed on joint publications using the CUPESSE data. For example, the partners used the opportunity for small group discussions on the book chapters authored by each country team. The manuscript for the edited volume, currently under contract with Palgrave Macmillan, will be submitted this fall with a planned 2018 publication date. Based on the information gathered through in-depth interviews with three family generations in 11 countries, the book aims to shed light on the question of how the transmission of values, attitudes, and different forms of capital from older to young generations shapes young adults’ paths to economic self-sufficiency.

Numerous other works in progress were presented and discussed at the meeting. These papers, many of which analyse the survey data collected by the CUPESSE, are planned to be submitted for publication in the remaining months of the project.

In addition to the research consortium, Advisory Board members Lorraine Uhlaner, Stella Ladi, and Michael Camasso also took part in the discussions.

The CUPESSE project members will reconvene one last time in Brussels on 25-25 January 2018. The final meeting will include a public symposium where researchers will present the project’s results and discuss them with relevant stakeholders from across Europe. Stay tuned for further information!
