Most of the studies are procured via open call for tenders and published on the EU Official Journal while some of them - mainly data collections, surveys and foresights- are performed by sister orgnisations such as EUROSTAT and JRC/IPTS.
The Final Reports of studies are published by the responsble Units in the thematic website of the relevant theme within the Information Society Portal.
