ECOSH - Occupational Health and Safety Economics It is generally assumed that a healthy workforce in safe workplaces is more productive and uses less social and health care expenses. This is even more important in Europe with an aging workforce. Therefore, the EU has granted a subsidy for a concerted action on the economic dimension of occupational health and safety as part of its seventh research framework programme.

EERQI - European Educational Research Quality Indicators EERQI will build an advanced prototype framework for relevance assessment of research publications in educational research. This will be based on formal mechanisms including citation analysis and linking, semantically-based full text analysis and co-occurrence of information items in open access and non-open access repositories. Journal articles, books and other freely-available scholarly publications are included.

ESSprep - The European Social Survey Infrastructure Preparatory Phase The European Social Survey (the ESS) is an academically-driven social survey designed to chart and explain the interaction between Europe's changing institutions and the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour patterns of its diverse populations. Now in its fourth round, the survey covers over 30 nations and employs the most rigorous methodologies. The survey has been funded through the European Commission’s Fifth and Sixth Framework Programmes, the European Science Foundation and national funding bodies in each country.

POINT – Policy Influence of Indicators The use of indicators to monitor and evaluate the impacts of public policies in various sectors is becoming increasingly popular. Indicators are being used by governments at different levels, both by public and private organisations, nationally and internationally. Despite their widespread use, there is little research evidence of the types and extent to which indicators actually influence policymaking. This project aims to fill this gap and improve indicator influence, by helping to better understand factors that enable and hinder the usefulness of indicators in policymaking. The project focuses on indicators designed to measure sustainable development and the integration of environmental concerns into other sectors of policymaking. POINT started in April 2008, and will end in an international conference to be held in spring 2011.

SAMPLE - Small Area Methods for Poverty and Living Condition Estimates The S.A.M.P.L.E. project is a research programme funded by European Commission under the Seventh Framework (FP7) Programme of the European Union. The project starts on March 2008 until March 2011. The aim of S.A.M.P.L.E. project is to identify and develop new indicators and models for inequality and poverty with attention to social exclusion and deprivation, as well as to develop, implement models, measures and procedures for small area estimation of the traditional and new indicators and models.
