CoLABOR Projects

The TIAT Toolkit has the following objectives:

1) to anticipate the effects of introducing technology in organisations;

2) the construction of scenarios with various means of legal regulation, work organisation, and social protection;

3) the management of micro-social relationships in the workplace and its regulation so as to prevent tensions, conflicts and other unwelcome outcomes;

4) the promotion of technological innovation in the context in which organisations operate, whether upstream with suppliers and subcontractors, or downstream with clients and users (acceptance of automated services; new ways of collective bargaining; impacts on Social Security funding).

The main objectives of this activity are to:

1) identify the impacts of technological, demographic and economic change on the redefinition of the role and key objectives of the social security systems in light of their “historic” functions;

2) identify the impact of these changes on the reconfiguration, simplification and “targeting” of the different welfare benefits, with a view to maximising adequacy;

3) develop analytical tools which, in addition to incorporating the dimensions usually considered in the more widely used models – demography, employment and product – also take into account the distribution of income, technological changes, articulation with complementary capitalisation systems, the transformation of social risks, as well as the effects of reconfiguring the actual social security system in the variables that influence its future sustainability;

4) strengthen the social security system by drafting proposals for the reconfiguration of the current system, in particular the redesign of pension plans in the framework of these new demographic and technological requirements.

This activity has the following objectives:

1) the mapping of the emerging societal challenges and their consequences for the sustainability and form of governance of social services (e.g. growing need for response to serious dementia and situations of extreme dependence in old age; adapting responses to people with impairments);

2) definition of a sustainable model for the funding and provision of care services that establishes a liaison between home and institutional care services;

3) drawing up of proposals on the governance model of social services, in accordance with the evolution of the territory’s administrative organisation.

DataLABOR has the following objectives:

1) making technical notes available to the general public and to institutions. These notes will permit the timely decodification of the legislation and regulation produced in the areas of work, employment and social protection;

2) preparation of dynamic indicator systems that have been duly interpreted and mapped, and that contemplate different dimensions of territorial disaggregation.

The development of this project, that aims to create the Investment Center for the Social Security National Institute, that will manage the  Reserve and Stabilization Fund for the Mandatory Social Protection (FREPSO) in Angola, includes the elaboration of the following reports:

1) Report on the Model of Operationalization of the Investment Center/FREPSO;

2) Designing the Processes related to the Model of Operationalization;

3) Manual of Procedures related to the Model of Operationalization;

4) Definition of the Human Resources Profiles, Needs and Formation Plan.
