ESF Data Support Centre

A part of the multiple framework contracts for the provision of services related to the implementation of Better Regulation Guidelines, the project aims at the production of ESF statistics, including methodological and harmonisation aspects. The Data Support Centre will assist the Member States and the Commission to fulfil the monitoring and reporting obligations set out in the Regulations governing the European Social Fund. This covers:
– Providing methodological support to the Commission
– Providing methodological support to the Member States
– Providing ESF data plausibility and consistency checks
– Reporting of ESF data.

Study supporting the 2019 evaluation of support to Employment and Mobility

The purpose of the study is to provide the Commission with evidence and analysis that will allow building up its evaluation of the ESF support to employment and mobility (i.e. TO8 excluding support to youth employment). The report aims at taking stock of the results of ESF related support for the period 2014-2018, building in particular on the relevant ESF evaluations carried out by the Member States. The results of the report should also feed into the next programming period by providing lessons and supporting the negotiations of the OP for the ESF+.

The study is a part of the multiple framework contracts for the provision of services related to the implementation of Better Regulation Guidelines.

Study supporting the 2019 Evaluation of Youth employment

A part of the multiple framework contracts for the provision of services related to the implementation of Better Regulation Guidelines, the study aims at providing DG EMPL with evidence and analysis that will allow building up its evaluation of Youth employment planned for December 2024. The purpose is twofold. On the one hand the evaluation aims at taking stock of the results of youth employment-related ESF support for the period 2014-2020, and on the other hand the results of the evaluation should feed into the next programming period by providing lessons.

The evaluation will assess the effectiveness, efficiency, relevance and EU value added of youth-oriented operations funded by YEI and other ESF actions during the period 2014-2018.
