Research

Rinne has conducted and leaded in recent years several international and national research projects, such as:

                 - YOUNG_ADULLLT (2016–2019)(Funded by European Union). “Nuorten aikuisten elämänkulkuja tukevat politiikat” on kansainvälinen kahdeksaa maata vertaileva tutkimusprojekti keskittyy    eurooppalaisiin, nuorille aikuisille suunnattuihin elinikäistä oppimista (Lifelong Learning, LLL) tukeviin politiikkoihin ja politiikkatoimiin, joiden tavoitteena on samanaikaisesti sekä talouskasvun    luominen että nuorten aikuisten sosiaalisen osallisuuden vahvistaminen.     Osallisuuden ja talouskasvun toisistaan poikkeavien painotusten ja aikaperspektiivien vuoksi  poliittinen päätöksenteko voi olla ristiriitaista ja epätarkoituksenmukaista, mikä voi johtaa hajanaisiin ja tehottomiin käytäntöihin, jotka eivät toimi optimaalisesti nuorten aikuisten parhaaksi.
