Sustainable Workforce is an Advanced Grant funded within the 7th Framework Program of the European Research Council.



The main goal of the European Research Council (ERC) is to encourage high quality research in Europe through competitive funding.

ERC Advanced Grants allow exceptional established research leaders to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in their respective research fields or other domains. The ERC Advanced Grant funding targets researchers who have already established themselves as independent research leaders in their own right.


This Advanced Grant has been personally awarded to Prof. dr. ir. Tanja van der Lippe.

Tanja is Professor of Sociology of Households and Employment Relations at the Department of Sociology and Research School ICS of Utrecht University, the Netherlands.
