The research project is funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the European Social Fund until 30 April 2013. It is part of the funding domain “Balance of flexibility and stability in a changing working environment” and is supervised by the German Centre of Aeronautics (DLR) in Bonn.

In the research project, which focuses on IT and media freelancers, we develop innovative concepts for their successful deployment, motivation and commitment as well as the strengthening of their vocational identity and employability. The project commenced on 1st July 2009.
