The Project on “The Design of Virtual Working Environments of The Future” (ViSAAR) has been launched

How can innovative work organisation contribute to the survival of companies in the future and how can it reinforce the regional environment? Which role will digital technologies play and how will remote companies of the future look like? These are the topics of the ViSAAR project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The project has started in May 2021 with a total funding of 3.4 million euros. The aim of this project is to prepare SMEs for the future with the help of innovative organisational and digital solutions to ensuring location-independent working. The ViSAAR project is coordinated by the Institute for Social Research and Social Economy (iso) in Saarbrücken.

iso-Report No 6

Living with Dementia in Dignity

Despite all efforts in research, practice and politics, the diagnosis of dementia is still combined with far-reaching negative results. Fears, taboo and stigmatisation characterise the everyday lives of many affected people and their families. A Porticus model programme addresses this dilemma: With the help of projects in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, the aim is to show how living with dementia can succeed in everyday society and which steps contribute to ensuring people's participation in the society and a life in dignity throughout the course of the disease. The iso-Report number 6 presents interim results from the evaluation of the programme.
