Project’s aim is to raise women’s awareness on one of the root causes of gender pension gap and of potential ways to address it. It focuses on increasing female knowledge on the long term effects of  labor market participation gaps over the life cycle and on the importance of planning retirement all over the life cycle.

Awareness activities are designed, tested and carried on different cohorts of women so as to achieve a long-term impact of decisions made in different moments of the life-cycle.

CLEAR plan to evaluate with rigorous and scientific methods whether information and advice provided to women affect their knowledge, behavior and decisions. We will also analyze which type of information has the higher probability to be effective, in order to reduce the gender pension gaps and the old-age poverty risk of women.
