The OSE is a partner in a new Horizon2020 European research project named ‘Working, Yet Poor’ (WorkYP). The project (2020- 2023) is being coordinated by the University of Luxembourg and involves eight European universities as well as three ‘social rights institutions’, including the OSE and the European Anti-poverty network (EAPN). The consortium explores the drivers of the recurrent phenomenon of in-work poverty (IWP) in the EU in the light of social rights of EU workers and citizens, notably those proclaimed in the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR).

The OSE was contracted by the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) to conduct research, which resulted in a book on “Social developments in the European Union 2013”. The 15th edition of this publication (published in July 2014) featured authors such as Anton Hemerijck (Fault lines and silver linings in Europe’s social market economy), Frank Vandenbroucke, Bart Vanhercke and John Morley (A European Social Union), and Ferdinand Fichtner (Euro area-wide unemployment insurance).
