  • Call for abstracts, Nordic Work Life Conference 2018

    21. September 2017

    Together with Work Research Institute, Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, Fafo is hosting NWLC 2018 next summer. The overarching theme of the conference is how to create a sustainable future of work in the Nordic countries in a time of rapid restructuring and rising levels of inequality and exclusion in working life. Are the Nordic models equipped to handle technological and organisational change and secure jobs for all?

Financial support to immigrant entrepreneurs


In 2014, a new regime aimed at immigrant education training was introduced. Through this regime, municipalities and county municipalities can apply IMDi for financial support in order to offer help to immigrants who wish to establish their own business. When evaluating the grant scheme, we focus on how the scheme has worked up to now, and its contribution to the bigger picture. What is the pre-conditions that must be present in order to succeed in strengthening immigrant prerequisites for establishing their own business?
