The voices behind youth unemployment

03.07.2013
A Student network group of Chemnitz University of Technology is pioneering a European Project on “Reenergizing European Society and Youth unemployment” in cooperation with the New Club of Paris

Prof. Peter Pawlowsky and Aylin Gözalan at the Chemnitz University of Technology have launched in cooperation with the New Club of Paris a project called “Re-Energizing Europe” which deals with social innovation in Europe and the employment chances of the young generation.

The first results of this student initiative (video interviews; facebook site) were presented at the NCP Luxembourg winter meeting in February 2013 and in June 2013 at the IC 9 World Bank conference in Paris.

The basic assumption of the project is that the European cohorts from the 60s on were brought up in the belief that education and knowledge are the most important resources for development, advancement and personal realization in life. This education promise was part of a generational and societal contract involving economic prosperity and future perspectives.
With the deep economic crisis, especially in southern Europe this educational contract is violated dramatically. In Southern Europe large parts of the younger generation with high education and good qualifications are without a chance and are considered as a „lost generation“. This is scandalous not only because of the individual destinies but also because of the tremendous waste of Human Capital and motivational energy.

The New Club of Paris (NCP) which is a global, impartial and neutral organization devoted to subjects of the knowledge society requests the innovation of a new generation contract. On occasion of the conference called in by Chancellor Angela Merkel to Berlin on July 3rd on the subject of youth unemployment in Europe this international “Think Club” raises its concerns. The New Club of Paris is convinced, that the so far valid “generation contract” has been inversed considering the fact, that more and more elder have to finance the younger with increasingly no income. The Club claims, that a new generation contract must be found.

The New Club of Paris pleads that beyond the results to be achieved at the Chancellor’s office in Berlin for immediate action, also some fundamental projects need to be started with the aim to identify and implement new rules for establishing a much more innovative social and educational policy in Europe. For this purpose the Club has drafted a discussion paper on the subjects under discussion in Berlin suggesting up to six elaboration projects, the specifications can be downloaded from http://www.new-club-of-paris.org/Generation-Paper-of-NCP (docx file format)

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
