IPOLIS has been developed within the Poverty pillar of the InGRID project and it has been carried out through joint research and coordination activities.

Research activities

The Poverty Pillar of the InGRID project produced several working papers on vulnerable groups in Europe.

Related to IPOLIS, methodological and data infrastructure report has been produced for easy-to-identify and easy-to-reach vulnerable groups: children, the youth and the elderly. In addition, a similar report has been carried out for policy and context indicators in IPOLIS.

Working papers on the data infrastructure available for the Roma and the undocumented migrants, has been also produced. These papers reflected on the feasibility of including these vulnerable groups in IPOLIS.
