The priority program 1764 is a network of labour market researchers which is sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The main objective of the priority program is to provide research about the challenges of the German and other European labour markets in a globalised world. Its focus is on technology, trade and demographic changes and the ways they interact with employment, wages, and participation in the labour market, with a particular emphasis on the role of institutions. This network brings together researchers from economics, sociology, and human resource management as well as from various universities and research institutes.
