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.

ESF Synthesis of Annual Implementation Reports submitted in 2018 and 2019 and ad-hoc reports

A part of the multiple framework contracts for the provision of services related to the implementation of Better Regulation Guidelines, the objective of the contract is to collect, analyse, synthesise and aggregate monitoring and evaluation information provided by Member States through Annual Implementation Reports (AIR) and, where relevant, progress reports12 in order to provide evidence on the performance of the ESF over the 2014-2020 programming period, for the AIR 2017 submitted in 2018, the AIR 2018 submitted in 2019 and the Progress Reports submitted in 2019. The information shall be presented in a standard and easy-to-read manner. The aim is also to collect additional information from Member States through interviews and surveys for the ad hoc reports. These reports will be used to communicate results to stakeholders and other institutions.

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.

Multiple Framework Contracts for the provision of services related to the implementation of Better Regulation Guidelines

The aim of the project is to provide the Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion (DG EMPL) with the resources and analytical capacities to deliver research services related to impact assessments, evaluations and monitoring in the areas of employment, social affairs, labour mobility and skills.

The Future of Manufacturing in Europe

This project explores scenarios for future developments in European manufacturing employment in the context of globalisation and rapid technological change. The key objective is to consider whether a revival of manufacturing could or should be based on foreign led growth or on a co-ordinated expansion of internal demand, which might have very different implications for the distribution of overall employment (i.e. both within and outside manufacturing) across Member States. A further objective is to gain a deeper understanding of how far recent technological and other developments are changing methods of production and the organisation and location of manufacturing activities.

Industrial Relations 2012

The aim project is to provide to provide advice and assistance with the statistical and quantitative aspects of the next edition of the Industrial Relations Report.  Mainly the service will be to produce statistical tables and graphs on a range of indicators related to social dialogue, employment and macro-economic issues.

Comprehensive sectoral analysis of emerging competences and economic activities in the Electromechanical engineering industry in the European Union
