The European Social Observatory is part of the four year NEUJOBS Project, funded by the European Commission (FP7). The main objective will be to highlight the opportunities and difficulties that result from the socio-economic and ecological transitions of the labour market. In order to include all stakeholders’ positions in the study, social partners will be actively involved. Results should allow decision makers to take the most appropriate social and economic measures and avoid/reduce negative impacts on some groups of workers (older workers, migrants, Roma, etc.). The OSE tasks will include the creation of an interactive platform for discussion and debate (blog) throughout the project, as well as the organisation of National Workshop Meetings in member States (with social partners from diverse geographical and intellectual horizons).
