The HEALTH at WORK project aims to review current knowledge and issues related to the economic impact of health at work, to assemble, organise, analyse and synthesise data from national projects and surveys in the participant countries, and to recommend future actions for research and policy development aiming at improving health and safety at work in a changing labour market environment in the European Union.

Project funded by the Ministry of Culture of Latvia
Creating an RTD Investment Policy for Regions in Emerging and Developed Economies (CRIPREDE) was focused on developing a flexible, interactive model for regional development. The project involved a group of researchers from six different countries across the EU 25 (Ireland, England, The Netherlands, Germany, Latvia, and Slovenia) who collaborated on an EU, FP6 funded project, within the Regions of Knowledge programme.
One of the sustainable legacies from the CRIPREDE project was the creation and development of the Spirit of Enterprise Forum in South East Ireland, a forum involving all of the region’s key stakeholders in entrepreneurship and innovation.
