Third call for applications is open until 30 June 2018
We are pleased to invite applications from universities in the EU Member States, EFTA and EU candidate countries to join the 23 already EMOS labelled Master programmes in 15 countries. EMOS builds on nationally accredited Master programmes which deliver upon the EMOS learning outcomes. The programmes also collaborate actively with the National Statistical Institutes or other producers of official statistics for relevant master thesis topics and internships in the sphere of official statistics. The third call for applications is based on the learning outcomes used in the second call in 2015 to familiarise the graduates with the system of official statistics, production models, statistical methods and dissemination. However, the third call emphasises the importance of addressing the rapidly changing landscape from design based production of official statistics to integrating different kinds of data sources.
Eligible universities are invited to submit their applications complete with accompanying documents as described in the EMOS call text, guide for applicants and application form until 30 June 2018.
