Work Packages

Work Package Structure

STAYin(g)Rural is organised into five research phases and four work packages (WP) which seek to draw out and explain similarities and differences in contemporary stayer types and staying processes between countries and life course stages. One national research team will each lead WPs 2-4, with WP1 being shared between all institutions (see figure below). The division of the WPs among the partners is justified by the specific expertise of each PI.
