Lost Millennials

Transnational research network for the evaluation of initiatives targeting 25+ NEETs – EEA and Norway Grants, Fund for Youth Employment (2021-2024)


The Lost Millennials project has launched in November 2021 under the second call of the EEA Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment. The consortium of 13 partners is led by HETFA Research Institute. The main objective of the project is to contribute to the successful integration of 25+ NEETs into the labour market by increasing knowledge on the effects of employment initiatives.


The partnership will build stakeholder capacity by carrying out impact studies and thus will improve the quality of labour market interventions. This will be achieved through the creation of a transnational research network to share know-how and best practices, the evaluation of government and community initiatives targeting 25+ NEETs, and the involvement of stakeholders to increase the policy relevance of the project results.
