Labour market research
EMCC's ongoing monitoring work is complemented by more specific research projects in selected labour market thematic areas. Recently completed thematic work includes a project on young people not in education employment or training [NEETs] and on born globals, young firms that internationalise rapidly. Ongoing projects include one on Restructuring in SMEs.

In addition, an extensive body of sectoral analysis has been developed since the inception of EMCC in 2002. This has sought to identify trends and drivers of change in selected sectors and has contributed to the sectoral dimension of the European Commission’s New skills for new jobs initiative. An archive of older EMCC research from 2002-10 is also available.
