Project start: Evaluation of the effects of the funding principles "Work Inclusive" - WiArIn - We are In!
On 1 December 2019, a new research project will start to evaluate the effects of Baden-Württemberg's funding principles on the participation of severely disabled people in working life. The Kommunalverband für Jugend und Soziales Baden-Württemberg (KVJS) is particularly interested in providing findings on the extent to which the measures thus implemented for the labour market-oriented qualification of participants can contribute to an improved participation situation. Based on the results of this study, professional standards are to be reviewed and further developed.
Sylvia Hubner, Matthias Baum (member of the scientific steering committee of ITA) and Michael Frese investigated this question. The resulting article "Contagion of Entrepreneurial Passion: Effects on Employee Outcomes" in Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice (ETP) also attracted the attention of Forbes. An article on 18 November this year now presents the results to a wider public.

Project partners just met in Germany for the first of a series of several meetings to exchange good practice and to develop effective solutions.
