Join us on 20 February
New year, new dialogues, new topics, new speakers, new design
Our 1st Youth Research Dialogue in 2023 takes place on 20 February.
We will talk about survey development within the youth field with colleagues from our RAY transnational research team. RAY is currently renewing the questionnaires for the research projects ‘Monitoring of Erasmus+ Youth (RAY MON)’ and ‘Monitoring of the European Solidarity Corps (RAY SOC)’, which will be shared with beneficiaries of both programmes all over Europe during this spring. Furthermore, we will hear additional insights and challenges related to survey development within the Finnish youth research sector by our guest speaker.

What are the Youth Research Dialogues?
The overall aim of the ‘Youth Research Dialogues’ series is to not only to make RAY research findings more accessible but also other European youth research studies and create a dialogue between researchers about their findings. The ‘Youth Research Dialogues’ series promotes different topics, e.g. inclusion and diversity, pandemic and youth work, digitalisation etc. In addition to researchers from the RAY Network, the ‘Youth Research Dialogues’ series features research colleagues from different global and European contexts and networks.
