The OSE started new research for the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI), examining the social protection measures taken in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic related to sickness, unemployment and leave benefits in the EU27. The deliverables of the project consist in an overall mapping report of the national measures, eight in-depth national case studies and a final analytical report. This study will be among the first to focus exclusively on the social protection measures taken by Member States to support non-standard workers and the self-employed in the context of the pandemic.

The OSE started new research for Formation Education Culture (FEC), an association for life-long learning and socio-cultural promotion linked to the Confederation of Christian Trade Unions (Confédération des Syndicats Chrétiens - CSC). The first part of the research maps the social protection measures taken in the 27 EU Member States in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, focusing on some categories of non-standard workers and the self-employed.
