Plug-in. Professional Life of University Graduates INformation system

Project Description

In this website we describe the activities and the scientific outcomes of a group of researchers – belonging to various Italian universities and research bodies – who are working together in an interdisciplinary fashion to evaluate the possibility of detecting the work activities and roles of graduates. The aim is to be achieved by connecting in a unique database data from academic, labour and social security sources. Hence, the project requires a long lasting period of data collection.

The project has started with a grant, named PRIN (Research project of relevant national interest), that MIUR, the Ministry of Education, University and Research, and some Universities allotted to a Research group at the University of Padua, and is going to be realized with the joint efforts of
-          INPS, the National Institute for Social Security,
-          the Italian Ministry of Labour,
-          the University of Padua, and
-          Veneto Lavoro, the Veneto Agency for Employment.
 
The common database, named Plug-in, was created with data on graduates at Padua University in 2008. Each year the database will be enriched with the data of people who graduated at the same University during the last year and the employment data of those who existed in the database since the beginning.
 
In February 2012, 16th and 17th, the Research group will organize a scientific meeting in Padua and publish scientific papers.
Period  The project started in 2010 and will end by 2020
