EMCC European Monitoring Centre on Change

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 projects on reduced non-wage labour costs, income inequalities and employment patterns, and estimating labour market slack in Europe.

Completed projects, 2013-2018 

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.
