On September 23, 2020 and on September 24, 2020, the members of the Research Training Group “Consequences of Social Services Work” were able to meet in person for the first time since the start of the Research Training Group on April 1, 2020. After digital communication formats had been used until then, we met in attendance, taking into account strict hygiene measures. Research students, doctoral students and postdoc presented their research projects, followed by a constructive discussion.
Despite the diversity of theoretical frameworks, empirical approaches, fields of work and disciplines, the talks and discussions about the individual projects show many common ground and synergy effects between the different research projects. The individual questions and subjects of the individual research projects reflect the central question about the opportunities and challenges of consequence research aimed at the target group.
