    Dear STYLErs,
    I am truly sorry to inform the STYLE consortium that I will not be able to join you for the kick-off meeting in Brighton. It looks set to become a memorable event, with very useful, early and welcome participation by many stakeholders and experts! Also the early launch of the STYLE-research.eu website it a very promising initiative, and I am confident it will become a useful resource – not only for knowledge, but also (inter)action. In the preparatory phase, we have already been able to establish very fruitful contacts between both research teams working on the EU’s youth unemployment research projects (STYLE & CUPESSE). Therefore, I look forward to joining you early September at the joint meeting that will be organised by the common partner at the Koç University, Istanbul. Let’s hope that these projects will contribute to bringing some hope for a better future to many European young adults. In the meantime, I wish you Happy STYLE days and look forward to working with you!
