DINAMIA’CET and the Centre of Studies for Social Intervention (CESIS) have constituted a consortium that provides services within the European Observatories of the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (EUROFOND), namely the European Observatory on industrial relations (EIRO) and the European Observatory on Working Conditions (EWCO). EIRO and EWCO are supported by a Network of European Correspondents across all EU Member States and Norway.
Eurofound runs two regular surveys on working life issues: the European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) and the European Company Survey (ECS).
EWCO focuses on the area “Working conditions and sustainable work” and EIRO on “Industrial Relations”. CESIS is the leader of the consortium and delivers products in both areas, DINAMIA’CET makes contributions to EIRO’s comparative studies in “Industrial Relations”, namely:
Data and information on key dimensions and indicators relevant to industrial relations,
Data and information on pay and working time,
Studies on the representativeness of sectoral social partner organisations (mandated by the European Commission)
DINAMIA’CET provides the data and info for EUROFOUND’s “Database on wages, working time and collective disputes” and “Database on collective wage bargaining”.
