The European Monitoring Centre on Change (EMCC) of the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) monitors changes in labour markets and brings together information on restructuring cases in one place. The network combines quantitative and qualitative information from the European Restructuring Monitor (ERM) and other Eurofound projects on restructuring and employment, and provides comparative analysis across the 27 EU Member States and Norway. As the national correspondent, FORBA (in a consortium with the Institute of Sociology, University of Vienna) reports on relevant developments in the fields of labour market, employment policy and restructuring cases in Austria.
