The customised report service involves the delivery on request to core stakeholders of occasional papers on selected themes. It was piloted in late 2006 and has been fully operational since the beginning of 2007.
Topics covered to date include flexicurity, financial participation and minimum wages in Europe - for a fuller list see the right column. The reports are based either on original analysis of existing Eurofound data sources (eg survey data sets), or summaries of previous Eurofound research in a given area.
Key objectives of the new service are to ensure rapidity, flexibility and quality in delivering customised input to meet specific needs of Eurofound stakeholders. The service is dependent on existing data - it cannot be offered for topics in which new research would be needed.
Requests are welcome from social partner organisations at European and national levels, member state governments and the EU institutions. A selective approach will be taken based on the relevance and policy importance of requests and the resources available.
