In 2016 the Department of Sociology started the long-term project 'Pathways to the Future - a longitudinal study of the social integration of young people in Vienna'. Pupils are contacted during their last year in the Neue Mittelschule (New Secondary School) and accompanied on their life path during at least five years. One of the special features of the study lies in its holistic approach enabled by the cooperation of all the department's research areas.

Between mid-February and the end of March 2017, members of the department and students of the Master's degree were ‘in the field’ conducting biographical-narrative interviews with pupils of the final year. Initially, around 80 interviews were planned, however, with thanks to the friendly assistance of the Vienna Board of Education and the great support from the directors and the class teachers, it was possible to conduct 107 interviews.

The foundation for the qualitative panel has been laid down through the implementation and documentation of the interviews. At the beginning of next year, the first survey of the quantitative panel will be carried out in the course of this mixed-method study.
