European Statistics in Support of Researchers


About the event

Eurostat provides the European Union with official statistics at European level that enable comparisons between countries and regions. As such, it offers a whole range of important and interesting data that could be useful for you in your various roles as a researcher. At this workshop (which took place in Luxembourg 30 September and 1 October 2019) Eurostat sought to:

  • learn more about the extent to which researchers already use European statistics for their research, teaching, social media posts, consultancy and expert opinions, 
  • discuss the statistical needs of researchers and how we could facilitate researchers' use of European statistics,
  • present ways to access European statistics,
  • offer the participants the opportunity to network with other researchers from across Europe.
